With over 5 billion videos being watched per day on YouTube alone, it’s clear that online video is exploding and shows no signs of slowing down.
This consumption number increases even further when you include video ready social media platforms such as Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and the late “six second” Vine app.
The message is clear: Online video is here to stay and for businesses that means targeting potential customers with bespoke videos should be a no brainer.
Still not convinced? Let’s take a closer look at some of the reasons why many businesses like yours are investing in their own videos for lead generation.
The online video statistics speak for themselves
- One-third of shoppers will make a purchase after watching an online product video.
- eBay report that adding videos to product descriptions increase sales by up to 35%.
- More than 800 videos are shared on Twitter every minute.
- Facebook reports over 100 million hours of video time per day.
- Snapchat stories lead to 10 billion video views per day.
- Snapchat video views have increased by 400% in 2017 over 2016.
With statistics like these and the prevalence of smart phones, tablets and other devices capable of displaying high-quality video on demand, it’s clear that online video consumption is here to stay.
Videos are much more memorable than text and images alone
Humans remember 10% of what we read, 20% of what we hear, 30% of what we see and 50% of what we see and hear combined. This combination of text, images, sound and animation results in strong engagement from viewers.
For many people, it’s far more enjoyable and easier to watch a video rather than reading a lengthy article on the same topic – especially on social media where ‘scroll culture’ is dominated by auto playing videos and eye catching visuals.
