6x the power of video content
Never before have we been so inundated with messages online. Being relevant to your target audiences is the key. However, to achieve that, you first need to be seen. This is where video content comes into play. Why is that? A picture is worth a thousand words, and this holds even truer for moving images. Here are 6 ways video content can empower you to achieve your goals.
1) Video content boosts your conversion

As mentioned in the introduction of this article, we emphasized the captivating nature of videos. While people may lose interest quickly when faced with text, videos engage the viewer, ensuring visibility and allowing you to convey brand identity to your target audience. Additionally, reading requires more energy than watching. Your brain exerts more effort to process text compared to viewing a video.
The advantage of video lies in its ability to communicate what your brand stands for in a short time, such as within 3 minutes. Achieving the same impact with text in such a brief period is nearly impossible.
In summary, when a potential customer visits your website, they are likely to linger longer when exposed to video content. This is because individuals are better equipped to make informed decisions about your brand and services through video, translating to an increased likelihood of a purchase, subscription, or other desirable actions, ultimately leading to a higher conversion rate.
2) Video content enhances your brand or organization's visibility (SEO)

Search engines like Google favor videos because they recognize that videos lead to higher user engagement. Elevated user engagement, in turn, improves metrics such as time on site and click-through rates, crucial for SEO scores. This is evident on the search results page, where a mix of content types, including videos, is typically found on all result pages.
Visibility is also impacted by another factor. A compelling video or a clear, catchy animation is more likely to be shared on social media. This generates additional backlinks to your website, contributing positively to your SEO score. A win-win situation!
3) Animation showcases your products and services in a unique way

Okay, let's take a moment to reflect. We've already seen that video content can increase the conversion rate because viewers feel more engaged with what they see. Sounds good, but do these videos actually pay for themselves? Of course, creating a film or animation does come with a cost.
