As we see it, there are 5 main benefits of video marketing:

Boost your website SEO: According to ComScore, including Video on your website increases its chances of getting higher rankings by 53%. Be sure to optimise your video as per the web page and content that accompanies it.

Increase User-Engagement: A big problem businesses face is lack of user-engagement, which affects their ranking. Compared to written content, video content is more shareable and generally generates more likes by viewers. Video content is shared roughly 1,200% more than traditional text content. Moreover, video is proven to keep users on your site for longer, giving you enough opportunity to showcase your products and services.

High-end information for Increased Conversion: A user is often in a state of disarray when they land on a site as they try to make sense of what is front of them; a video is one of the best ways of guiding users by showing them and not telling them. The inclusion of video marketing along with landing page optimisation has seen an increase in conversion rate by about 80%.

High ROI: Compared with other marketing tools, video provides you with high return on investment (ROI). The main reason for its high conversion rate and increased ROI is its ability to explain things in an engaging visual format that grabs users. ‘Explainer videos’ is particularly effective at generating a high ROI.

Builds Trust on Brand: Videos grow customer trust; video reviews made by common people add credibility to your product or service and assures customers that the proposed benefits of what they are buying are legitimate. This is what makes your brand popular and expands your customer base.

Ultimately, content is king, and the need for rich content is paramount. Visual content in the form of graphics and videos will help to elevate your brand and promote your business no end.
