People are inclined towards time-saving methods to consume news or any other information; that is where Video Content Marketing comes into the picture. In a study conducted by Google, it was found that the usage of YouTube content among individuals increased by 74% in 2020 compared to 2015.
Video content makes up about 82% of the content available online.
Video content marketing allows you to share relevant information about your brand’s product or service target audiences. It also adds a considerable amount of user-generated content in the form of reviews, which can be further leveraged for product management and community building.
Creating Emotional Connect with Target Audiences.
