Well, in this article, we will learn why videos should be in the top list of your marketing efforts. So, without any delay, let’s get started.

However, it doesn’t have to be top-notch and meet studio production value. The only thing that you need to take care of is the value that the video offers.

5. More on-page time

Brainshark revealed that 65% of the viewers do watch videos up to 3/4th of the video length. That’s huge and should be used in favor of your marketing efforts.

    Videos can make you some serious money. Adding a product video on your landing page can increase conversions by 80%. Another good news is that your videos don’t have to be perfect. It’s the content that matters! Latest research shows that users are mostly put off by videos that don’t explain the product or service clearly enough. Low quality and poor design didn’t matter nearly as much. So it’s fair to say that video is like pizza – when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good!
