Why should you or your clients use video? Here’s how we see it.

Video is dominating people’s online activity.¬†Roughly 78% of people watch videos online every week, and 55% watch videos online every day. The people who study this stuff estimate that this year, 74% of all web traffic is going to be online video. So, if you want to reach people, video is looking like the best tactic.

Video not only gets you out there, it gets you sales. Businesses that have videos on their website see higher engagement rates, higher click-through rates, and higher conversion rates. That means more people are seeing your brand, checking out your brand, and then becoming customers of your brand. People are more likely to share a video than text, especially on social media. In fact, 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.


Just look at these other stats:

  • 46% of people who watch a video ad on a business website take action after viewing it.
  • 90% of online consumers report that a business’ product or service video helps them make a decision to buy.
