The power of images and video in content marketing

Implementing video is a good way of making your content marketing strategy more solid. New research has revealed what users perceptions are when it comes to video marketing.

Vibrant Media, an international company specialising in premium contextual technology, carried out a survey during the first quarter of 2017 to find out what consumers thoughts were towards branded video marketing.

The findings revealed that consumers are very selective when it comes to video, as figures showed that 70% of users directly ignore all those videos that are not relevant to their interests.

More than a half of respondents (56%) confessed that they were more likely to consider doing business with those companies which produce quality content and valuable information via video. A further 21% even said that targeted videos actually increase their purchase intent.

Further data from comScore has revealed that more than 10 billion video ads were viewed last May by the American users, while up to 180 million of them watched some form of web video during the same month.
