We live in a visual world and it’s getting more image-driven every day, with video leading the charge when it comes to online information consumption.  That why, according to a recent Forbes report, 87% of online marketers currently use video content as a part of their digital marketing strategies.

When thinking about where to allocate your 2019 marketing budget, video should be your go-to promotional asset. Online video campaigns help organizations increase brand awareness, engage with target audiences, build brand loyalty and trust and showcase a compelling story to make a positive impact for your organization.

Although video marketing is a powerful tactic, there are a few things you should keep in mind before launching your campaign:

  • Videos under two minutes long get the most engagement
  • 33% of viewers will stop watching a video after 30 seconds, 45% by one minute, and 60% by two minutes
  • According to YouTube, mobile video consumption grows by 100% every year
  • Driven by mobile video ads, US mobile ad spending will outstrip all traditional media ad spending combined by 2020
