For some it has gone unnoticed, but are you aware of the exponential increase in the of videos in all digital media? It is absolutely incredible. Go back a few years in your memory: Facebook alone mainly consisted of sharing some lines of text, external links, and pictures. Currently, online videos constitute a big part of the content of our Facebook walls. Such is the impact that this particular network has on users, that some companies have chosen to prohibit the use of cell phones during work hours.
In the present day, almost every content market prefers videos – videos are more likely to engage online consumers than any other form of media. This means that if you’re one of those companies or brands who aren’t yet in the game of video marketing, you are at risk of being left behind by your competitors. That’s because videos provide a better chance of really reaching your customer base, captivating their attention, and actively engaging with them.
It is a fact that using video to deliver your message to your customers is one of the best ways to do it. In today’s world, we are surrounded by images and videos, and who doesn’t like to share a good video clip about cats being mischievous, babies being cute, or dogs behaving like clowns? Some may have different interests – political, gourmet, fitness – the list is endless. The part that we can’t deny is that we’d rather watch a video than read a whole page with information. As interesting as it might be, it is way better when you have music and images to go along with the information that is being shared.

Videos are among the most effective tools to make yourself noticed online. It is also a great way to introduce your company to investors and as a part of the induction program for employees.
