You’re foolish for ignoring video marketing.

You’re foolish for ignoring video marketing. Blog Feature

October 27th, 2015 min read

Before you grab a pitchfork, hop on the next plane to Connecticut, and demand that I meet you out in the parking lot, let’s talk about this.

Video is the future of digital marketing and there are several reasons we need start embracing it as marketers. When it comes to Marketing, more often than not, the numbers don’t lie. Here are what some of the numbers about video say:

  • Video now appears in 70% of the top 100 search results listings (source)

  • 75% of business executives watch work-related videos weekly (source)

  • 54% of business executives share work-related videos weekly (source)

  • 65% of executives have visited a vendor's website after watching a video (source)

  • Visitors who view videos stay on a website 2 minutes longer than those who don’t (source)

  • Homepage video usage is shown to increase conversion by 20% or more (source)

  • Using video on landing pages can increase conversion by 80% or more (source)


Video seems like a no-brainer, right? But, wait: Crayon’s State of Video Report on 50,000 leading brands shows only 16% of homepages use video and industries using video the most only have a 25% adoption rate.

What gives? Are we and 16% of adopting companies in on some sort of secret, or is something else coming into play here?

I’ll admit it. I was perplexed about this until I had a conversation with a coworker about it. To quote her, “I would love to do more video. It’s just so time-consuming” and “Yeah, it’s just the idea of video is great...everyone would agree to that, but is it cost effective?”

My co-worker is voicing some solid concerns here; concerns I completely overlooked. Is video production time consuming, and therefore, costly? How much extra time does video take create over other mediums? What are the extra costs? Most importantly, can we prove that a video is a good investment?

Answering those questions are a blog article in and of itself, but I wanted to get you thinking: What is your relationship with video? Can you do it? Will you be the one who proves the ROI or will you wait for someone else to pave the way?

Tweet me: I would love to hear your opinion.
