67 Video Marketing Statistics That Prove You Need A Corporate Video
In past blogs, I’ve talked a lot about the different kinds of video marketing that are available to businesses. Video is huge, there’s no way around it. If you’re not utilizing video for your business, you’re missing out on huge potential revenue possibilities. And my suggestion is that you get on board now, because it’s only getting bigger from here with AR, VR, and interactive video coming down the pipeline.
So far, I’ve only used video marketing statistics as supporting references to the blogs, but this time we’re going for a different, direct approach.
Prepare to be hit with all the video marketing statistics about why it’s so important to use digital video than you ever thought you’d need. But this is intentional. If you aren’t entirely convinced that you need digital video marketing by the end of this, I don’t know what else to tell you. Many of these figures are mind-blowing, from video consumption to actual numbers on ROI increases due to video usage.
So buckle up and enjoy as we make our way through the video marketing statistics that prove you need corporate video.
