It’s really very simple. Consumers have always loved story telling with moving images. It’s just taken this long for the internet to deliver at the speeds consumers expect.
Now with 4G video streaming and high-resolution screen technology in the palm of your hand, today’s consumers prefer to watch than read.
Have you ever seen a teenager solve a problem? They watch a video. (Usually on their phone, which is rarely used to voice call people. That’s old fashioned!)
This is all done with a broader brand purpose in mind.
Content savvy clients recognise that when you engage viewers they will share the video with others. They will spend longer on your website and more time interacting with your brand. For any social media campaign, any SEO exercise, video is without doubt one of the best tools in the advertising kit bag of tricks.
When it comes to potential reach, video is without peer. YouTube receives more than one billion unique visitors every month – that’s more than any other channel. And with new content platforms popping up every month, the creative possibilities are endless.
A recent campaign we have completed for RMIT University has seen over 50,000 views for each of the films in a single month. By 2017, video will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic, according to Cisco*.
