Why Corporate Video Marketing Is a Necessity in 2019
- Mobile video is rapidly growing in popularity
Maybe you have already noticed everyone who has a mobile device is viewing and absorbing online content at record speeds, and video is certainly no exception. In fact, mobile video consumption is predicted to grow by 100% every year! [SOURCE]
Plus, it’s estimated that in 2019, 80% of the online content consumption will be in video format. [SOURCE] This clearly means that if you are not utilizing video as a marketing medium already, you’re missing out on countless potential video views, which could have lead to potential conversions and eventually, sales.
- Video can fit well into your existing digital marketing strategy
Here are some statistics to show you how video is helping online marketers get amazing results when it’s used with an already existing digital marketing channel:
- Using video on landing pages can increase conversion rates by as much as 80% [SOURCE]
- Embedding video in an email can increase click-throughs by as much as 200-300% [SOURCE]
- 92% of videos watched on a mobile device are shared by the user with others in their network. [SOURCE]
This means it’s highly likely that users will share your video on social media too — which can result in increased brand awareness and conversions. Don’t you think video can fit into your online marketing strategy too? If not, think again!
- Product videos are effective sales tools
If you’re selling products or services on your website, video can prove to be a great sales tool. Videos can help your target audience to visualize exactly what they are going to receive when they choose to transact with your business.
In fact, 90% of online users claim that product videos usually help them decide whether or not to purchase a product or service. [SOURCE] This goes on to show that if you are not using product videos on your sales pages, you could be missing out on a large percentage of potential conversions.
- Seeing a video is better than reading the plain text
Did you know that more than 65% of the average population comprises of visual learners? [SOURCE] This means that people remember something they saw or heard much better than something they read.
In fact, viewers retain 95% of a message in their memories when they watch it in a video, compared to just 10% when they have read a piece of content. [SOURCE] No doubt, the visual nature of videos makes users retain the material in their memories, which means you certainly need to have video in your marketing arsenal!
- Videos are good for your content marketing strategy
Companies who utilize videos in their content marketing strategy noticed an average of 41% increment in organic web traffic compared to those who don’t. [SOURCE]
Can you imagine such an increase in your organic web traffic by simply adding another content format (like video, in this case)? Just imagine how much increment you would notice in your website conversions by using a few videos, even if you only choose to use it on the pages that get the majority of your web traffic.
There are countless ways corporate businesses can leverage the power of video marketing. Whether you want to increase website conversions, need more visitors on your website, or increased brand awareness and engagement on social media – having a unique corporate video marketing strategy is essential in 2019 and beyond.
