Online video is exploding. In my last LinkedIn post, I shared many mind boggling facts on video marketing. They clearly indicate the movement to multimedia is rapidly accelerating. Today, 81% of Senior Marketing Executives report using online video content in their marketing programs. That's up 70% from 2011.
The Question I'm Often Asked...
When discussing video marketing with colleagues in my arena - Business Networks, B2B Software, Supply Chain - I'm often posed a question like - "I totally understand how videos help sell consumer goods or light weight business apps, but I'm not sure they work in our space. Why do you spend time doing them?"
Inspired by Jeopardy, my response is usually in the form of a question - "Did you know videos are our highest performing content and key with our most engaged customers and prospects?" I then look forward to the follow-on conversation.
It's these conversations that have inspired this series of posts on video marketing - and irony aside - told through Infographics ;-)
Video content creates engagement and drives demand. If 81% of Senior Marketing Executives today report using online video content in their marketing programs, what are the other 19% thinking? Time to get on-board. Lights... Camera... Action!
