Because consumers are so highly visual and video-responsive. It is estimated that people are 90% visual beings, so they bases their learnings on the visual experience. There are several reasons why marketers should take advantage of videos and transform the relationship between brands and consumers into an interactive communication within videos.

  • increase brand exposure, especially if the video goes viral. Viral videos are generally based on an insight: basic behavior or special actions that consumers are used to do when they buy certain products/services. If you are able to interpose your brand between  insights and buying moments, and make a video out of this, it means that you can create a viral video. 

 

  • increase impact on conversation rate. Even if a  conversation may not be the result of a sale,  it is very important for brand awareness. By using videos, marketers have the opportunity to increase brand exposure, generate user reviews of the products/services and increase traffic on the website. 

 

  • add value to the viewer’s experience and make them like and share your video; and maybe one of the most important thing in here, make them talk about your video.
