the online video landscape
Every company has a story to tell, no matter if the company is a century old with a long and dense legacy, or barely out of the entrepreneurial gate. The most effective way to tell any story is with unique and compelling video marketing.
You want to modernize your company and captivate your customers. But what about the bottom line? Will a video production actually help your company?
Allow us to paint the picture for you:
- Video accounted for 80% of Global Traffic in 2019 (Cisco Internet Traffic Study)
- Google says an indexed video stands a 50x greater chance of ranking on the first search page than textual pages. (Forrester Research)
- Video has a 400% higher engagement rate than static content. (Forrester Research)
- 75% of C-suite executives say they watch work-related online video at least once a week. (Forbes)
- 65% of senior executives have visited a vendor’s website after watching a video. (Forbes)
Compelling video has tremendous potential to instill emotion and affect business decisions.
the importance of high-end video production
High-end video production is a great way to show your brand in a modern light, effectively communicating your message and separating you from the competition.
Poor quality video content, such as outdated promotional or internal videos on VHS, or video that is obviously shot on a mobile device, does not instill confidence in your audience.
While phone camera technology has come a long way, it’s not the best option when your brand is hanging in the balance. Owning a paintbrush doesn’t make one a painter. A quality camera mixed with an artistic and professional eye equals unparalleled image quality, composition, lighting, etc. and highlights the subject matter in the best way possible.
