The video is taking content marketing by a storm. Do you actually realize a full online video potential and its importance of video marketing? If you scroll through any of your social media timelines, the most probably you will come across a minimum of one video. It might show the popularity, in fact, it doesn’t explain why video content is so popular. Let’s dig in some stats:
82% of global traffic will consist of video by 2022 (Cisco) – for comparison, in 2017, the video made up 75% of IP traffic. This happens because search engines are falling for videos as they see them as high-quality content. Regardless of where it is being posted – on the company official site or landing page, at the social media platform or embedded in the email newsletter, search engine bots recognizing the engaging content and ranking companies up high.
You will be surprised, but 88% of the videos appearing in the top 10 pages of Google’s blended search are from YouTube. As a result, it drives a 157% increase in organic traffic.
In 2019, 87% of businesses are using video as a marketing tool (Wyzowl) – it’s a raise from the previous year by 6%. This shows how critical it is to start creating online videos if you want to stay competitive and relevant to your customer.
We all know the English idiom “A picture is worth a thousand words”, McQuivey Forrester revealed the study How Video Will Take Over The World, where stated that video is worth 1.8 million words. Not a surprise, that videos are more engaging over text posts, blogs, infographics or presentations. You can tell so many information in the 15-second clip explaining what your product or service is about, rather than forcing your customer to read a 3-page manual. It becomes a necessity since an average human attention span is 8 seconds, it’s even shorter than the average attention span of a goldfish!
Videos are on demand, as almost 50% of Internet users look for videos related to a product or service before visiting the store (Hubspot). When last time have you bought a product without watching an explainer video about it before? People do it constantly to learn the features that are highlighted and decide on benefits the product can provide to them.
However, not every product video is converting. The reason is – it’s not good enough. Here are some remarkable tips to overcome this issue: create an engaging dialogue and narration; make it short to keep the customer attention, but be sure to fully explain the benefits of the product; don’t overwhelm the viewer with too much information and complicated wording; make it personal and emphatic to your viewer.
Videos on a landing page can increase conversions by 80% or more (EyeViewDigital). In 2017, Neil Patel has been talking about a great case study of e-commerce shop StacksAndStack.com which reported, that integrated product video to the landing page has increased purchases by 144%. Invesp came up with a great infographic summarizing the advantages of E-commerce Product Page Videos where the biggest highlight is that E-commerce product pages with video convert up to 80% better than those without videos.
Live internet videos will account for 13% of the total video traffic by 2021 (Cisco). In 2018, people created more than 3.5 billion Live broadcast on Facebook and more than 500 million people who use Instagram stories and create live videos. Customers are looking for empathy and emotions, they prefer to follow brands that are showing the personality. Live videos have the full potential to show this so much needed personality in the real-time and therefore build trust and loyalty towards the brand. The good news is that you can create live videos at the starting price of $0.
Video production costs are vital for many marketers who are planning to include videos for their businesses, even Wyzowl shared stats where mentioning that 12% of marketers don’t use online videos in their marketing content strategy thinking that it is too expensive, 23% said they lack time and 21% just didn’t know where to start.
