Consumer attitudes towards video

Consumers are becoming more sophisticated, so producing low quality explainer videos will undermine sales. For videos to connect with their target audience, they need to be:

  • entertaining,
  • informative,
  • inspirational.

For example, almost two in three people say they would share a video if it was informative. More than half of users say they would share a video if it was inspirational.

Video marketing impact on brands

Video will be key to effective marketing strategies and brands who do them well will increase brand engagement. In fact, more than half of all companies are using video in their marketing strategies. Brands who switch from text based display advertising to video advertising have the best chance of converting leads to sales. Especially if this is done on mobile platforms. It is evident when we consider that 18 to 24 year olds spend 36 minutes per week viewing video content on smartphones, the most of all age demographics.

This Millennial generation is set to become the dominant consumer group as Baby Boomers retire in their masses over the next few years. So Millennial generation will become a key consumer group for brands to focus on.
