Why should you invest in video for your social?

  • 54% of consumers want to see more video content from the brands or businesses they support. (Hubspot)
  • 87% of marketing professionals use video as a marketing tool. (Wyzowl)

Video production might cost a bit more, but it’s a necessary investment to attract more people to your business. Here are some of the biggest reasons why your brand needs video content on social media:

  • It gets more exposure which means more engagement. Moving imagery grabs a viewer’s attention for longer, which means it’s more likely an algorithm will boost that content to a broader audience.
  • It sticks around for longer because video content usually encourages more interactions and shares, which means it stays in the ecosystem for longer.
  • It’s faster and easier to communicate information and easy to consume.
  • It’s becoming the popular choice across all channels.
  • It appeals to a Generation Z audience. It can reach audiences across multiple platforms.
  • Video might be more costly and time-consuming, but one video can be repurposed to fit multiple platforms.
  • It’s a powerful sales tool. If a picture can tell a thousand words, just think how many words a video can tell. Video allows businesses to showcase products in a dynamic way, adding valuable context.
