There are many reasons why companies need to invest in video content. In todays blog post, let’s take a look at why this is the case, so, yourself as a business owner can feel more confident that implementing video is right for you.
Before investing in video production, the most important thing to consider first is who your target audience is. How can you connect your target audience to your business services/products? How can you get your audience to better trust your business? Can you educate them about your services?
Now depending on your target audience, will depend on the type of video content that you would want to be produced and the methods in which you distribute this content. The key point here is that not every company will have a need to invest in the same type/s of video production. However, generally speaking there are some fundamental reasons why companies need to invest in video content.
Firstly let’s look at the fact that people’s attention spans are getting shorter and shorter. This is where video can help, as it’s one of the best ways to hold people’s attention as video engages our senses more than any other form of content.
The tricky part is, because there is such a huge amount of video content online it can be hard to stand out. Statistics from 2020 show that on Youtube alone, 30,000 hours of video content was uploaded every 60 minutes on the platform.
Therefore in order to cut through the noise, your videos need to be of real quality, they should be either entertaining, informative or inspirational, and if you can combine more than one of these together then your videos will be better than the vast majority. Not only that but consistency is key, audiences are demanding video content, with 54% of consumers wanting to see more video content from businesses they support.
The latest video marketing statistics show that 86% of marketing professionals use video as a marketing tool. Do you really want to be one of the 14% that isn’t keeping up with the overwhelming majority?!
These marketing professionals trust in the potential of video content to be able to help grow their business.
In fact over three quarters (78 percent) of them said that videos have directly helped to increase their sales, while 86 percent also say that videos increased traffic to their website.
The proof is very much in the pudding, these stats really help paint the picture of why companies need to invest in video. With 78% saying it has helped to increase their sales, it begs the question, why are you holding back on video?
Everyone has been impacted one way or another from the Covid-19 pandemic. Society and companies have had to adapt quickly. With two thirds of employees now working remotely, and that number looks like it will continue to rise. It means that more and more people are spending time at home in front of their laptops.
What does that mean? It means that we are lacking in human connection and engagement. We are social beings at the end of the day. Well, thankfully, video is a brilliant way to help bridge that connection. Just imagine working without the zoom calls, it’d be a pretty lonely work life.
We are craving video content to engage us. So what are you doing to keep both your consumers and employees interested in your business? Video brings a human touch to your communication, and this will ultimately help people connect more with your business, which results in more sales.
If your employees are happier and more engaged with your company thanks to video content, then this is going to be hugely beneficial to your company. Video is also a fantastic, cost effective choice in training staff members. The return on investment (ROI) for training videos is significant and in many cases, the videos can be used, many times over for years to come.
Now one of the reasons why companies don’t invest in video content is because they are frightened of the costs involved. To hire your own internal videographer is going to cost roughly £30,000 a year, plus you’ve go the costs of buying the equipment that is needed to create the content with. The cost of equipment can vary hugely but you’ll be looking at a few thousand pound at least.
