If a picture tells a thousand words, imagine the possibilities for videos.
Visual storytelling is powerful. It activates sight, sound, language and emotions.
In fact, research shows that viewers retain significantly more information about a business after watching a video, versus reading text alone.
Videos have also proven to increase:
- Website traffic
- SEO and Google search rankings
- Leads and conversions
- Audience understanding
- Brand visibility
More businesses are turning to video marketing to reach their audiences online, especially as remote work continues to trend in 2022.
Over the past two years, so many companies were forced to quickly adapt, or sadly close the business they worked so hard to build.
People are also spending less time interacting with consumers face-to-face via networking events, conferences, trade shows, and business trips. And many companies don’t know how to attract consumers in this increasingly virtual era.
Videos can help bridge this gap. A creative and heartfelt video can forge a connection between companies and their consumers. Through video marketing, businesses are better able to reach target audiences like customers, clients, staff, industry leaders, influencers and myriad stakeholders. On an international level as well.
Along with deepening connections to audiences, video marketing yields measurable returns on sales and profits.
