    VIDEO: 9 Reasons Why You Can't Live Without Video Marketing

    It's the beginning of 2017 and if you still haven't gotten on board the video marketing train, there's still time.

    You may have already used some form of video in your marketing strategy at some point. As the new year begins, it's clear that 2016 was a year of revolution in video marketing and that you cannot survive without video marketing any longer.

    Wyzowl released statistics for last year that reported 61% of businesses have used video as a marketing tool and 66% of these same companies never used video a mere year earlier. It's a trend that's progressed rapidly, and keeps growing faster than we think because:

    • 75 million people in U.S. watch videos online everyday
    • Embedded videos on web sites can increase traffic up to 55%
    • Simply having the word "video" in the subject line of an email can increase open rates by 13%
    • Nearly 40% of all videos today are watched on mobile devices

    Hyperfine Media reports that video ads increase purchase intent by 97% and increase brand association by 139%. With those numbers, it’s no wonder they also report video ad spending reaching $5.4 Billion by the end of 2016.

    But, if you’re a marketer, you don’t need these stats to know that you need to incorporate video into your overall marketing strategy. You’re already doing it on some level. Whether you’re seeing the results you want may be a different story.

    Flair Interactive’s Julie Lyons offered up a helpful checklist on making the most of your marketing videos in her April 2014 #TBT Blog, How to Enjoy Successful Video Marketing. Since video is truly in constant motion, I’ve assembled a few more pointers that can take your camera work to new levels.

    Ever hear the expression "a picture is worth a thousand words"?

    Well, in today's ever-changing and evolving world of online media and inbound marketing, a video is worth a million—if not more. Videos have become an integral part of our daily experience on our computers, smart phones, Smart TVs and other devices. This essential form of communication is becoming the main currency of online communication.

    Text-based sites are outdated, Currently Google's search engine gives higher priority to video, meaning if you use video, you have over 50x more chances of appearing on the first search page than if you used text. Businesses have to be prepared for this video boom, since trend-watchers like Cisco’s trends analysis predict that by 2018 video will make up 79% of all Internet traffic, going up from today's 66%. So with video being so popular what's the best way to integrate video content onto your site?

    Social media marketing has changed significantly over the past few years, so staying up to date on trends is absolutely essential to your success. 

    One of the fastest growing trends is image-centric marketing rather than traditional text-based marketing.  Many find that it is easier to digest information when presented visually rather than by just reading text.  Understanding this change in trend can help optimize your social media marketing campaign, giving you an edge over any competitors who may still rely soley on publishing text.
