Why You Need to Focus on Video Marketing in 2017 [Infographic]

By Joe Rinaldi

Why You Need to Focus on Video Marketing in 2017 [Infographic]

According to Statistic Brain, the average person has a shorter attention span than a goldfish. Since 2000 the average person's attention span has fallen from 12 seconds to about 8 seconds.

At first that stat surprised me, but then I realized that while writing that sentence alone I stopped to browse a Spotify playlist, check my email, and read up on some of the latest Star Wars fan theories.

Guess I can’t really argue with their logic.

While this may seem like a random bit of knowledge, it actually plays a major role in the way we interact with prospects. It means marketers are being challenged with new ways to grab people’s attention and keep it.

For many, video marketing has become a powerful solution.

It gives you the ability to tell your brand story and connect with your audience in an interactive way. Marketers using tactics such as Facebook Live, Snapchat, and even virtual reality videos are seeing some serious results. In fact, according to Unbounce, simply including a video on a landing page can help increase conversion rates by 80%.

Stats like this combined with videos integration into social media platforms makes it clear that video is becoming a critical part of successful marketing campaigns.

If you still need a little extra convincing, HighQ created the following infographic loaded with data on why 2017 will be the year of video marketing.

Some of the key stats include:

  • By 2017, online video will account for 74% of all web traffic.
  • 33% of tablet owners watch about an hour of video on their devices every day.
  • 59% of senior executives agree that if both text and video are available on the same topic on the same page, they prefer to watch the video.
  • 69% of marketing, sales, and business professionals have used video marketing and another 31% are planning to.
