Numbers, Sales Stats. Proof Video Marketing Pays
Let's face it: including social networks in your digital marketing is essential. Not posting videos on social networks is today… a big mistake!
Videos receive much more attention from those who watch them. They arouse more envy, curiosity, relatability, and provoke interaction more spontaneously. A professional video posted on a social network generates more engagement, traffic, and clearly helps in increasing sales.
Social video, the numbers
This is not breaking news. Utilizing professional video to increase visibility and ultimately ROI is indeed a reality. One that has been supported for several years by a plethora of data.
Each stat, more telling than the next!
Let's take a look
On average, a video generates 1,200% more sharing than text or images
Videos are shared 6 times more on Twitter than photos
86% of businesses use video as a marketing tool, increasing slightly from 85% in 2020.
This is the high point in a general story of video usage growing which can be traced back to 2016 (the first time we asked this particular question in this way).
87% of video marketers reported that video gives them a positive ROI — a world away from the lowly 33% who felt that way in 2015. This could well be attributed to a greater understanding of how to use video, as well as how to track and quantify its impact.
YouTube and Facebook are the most widely used platforms among video marketers — used by 89% and 70%, respectively.
An overwhelming majority of people (94%) report watching explainer videos to learn more about a product, with 84% being swayed to make a purchase.
It's clear that video is the way to reach the largest audience, have the most impact, and win the easiest. Still skeptical? Don't take our word, or Hubspot's for it.
