WHY YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS A VIDEO MARKETING STRATEGY
How important is video marketing for your business? Perhaps even more important: how effective is video marketing? The fact of the matter is, video is an extremely popular form of content all over the world, and the truth is it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. With the world becoming more digital and seemingly impersonal, we all start to crave things that feel personal and provide connection. We want to see and hear people in real-life settings and situations; it makes them more meaningful.
This becomes especially important for businesses because like they say, people buy from people not businesses. So, how does a business become more human, show their personality, and build trust through emotional connections in a way that converts? With video!
Here are some fun video marketing statistics for you:
Did you know that in 2020…
85% of businesses use video as a marketing tool,
92% of marketers who use video say that it’s an important part of their marketing strategy,
and 88% of video marketers report that video gives them a positive return on their investment (ROI)!
Also, 99% of current video marketers say they plan to continue using video and 95% plan to increase or maintain what they’re investing in producing videos!
Videos are so powerful because…
Video Effectively Tells Stories & Builds Emotional Connections
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video might just be worth a million (or more)! Videos can expertly navigate storytelling in powerful, impactful ways. In a matter of seconds, you can hook your audience by appealing to them visually or posing a thought provoking question, you can shift the whole tone of the piece by switching up your visuals or music, and you can leave your audience wanting more at the end of the two minutes (or less) they’ve spent with you. This makes video marketing important for every business to utilize.
Crafting an effective story is an art form. When done right, it can instantly build trust for your brand through emotional connection. This trust is what then allows folks to take actions that deepen their customer relationship with your brand.
Video also allows you to infuse your brand’s personality into the piece. Is your brand built on humor, passion, compassion, or sarcasm? Your video marketing can capture the same tone as it brings your stories to life.
