Video Stats are Important
But Watch the Video Trends.
The most important statistics are those most meaningful to your business and circumstances.
More important are two trends. The use of online video is expanding exponentially, particularly in B2B. And the trend toward story telling as a marketing staple is also expanding.
These two trends are important because they are linked hand-in-hand. Short of talking in-person to a sales prospect, video is is the best way to tell a story, replete with words and moving pictures, a human voice, music, sound effects and emotion: the element that connects it all. Even in person, video will help convey your story.
The story is our secret sauce, included in every Story Vision Video. We make sure we understand you and your customers. Because we know the story we create in video for you is about both.
