If we were to ask you what your brand’s content marketing strategy is- what would your response be? Would you even know how to respond? In fact, a content marketing strategy is what separates companies with a plan for their audience from their less prepared competitors.

Content is the key element to every online marketing activity. From social media and paid advertising, to blog marketing, email marketing, and SEO – all of these online marketing activities require high quality content in order to produce results.

Video marketing is on the increase… and all research shows it potentially out performs all other types of online ads.
As web technology moves more toward mobile surfing, and digital assistants become more popular along with a rise in social media video advertising, we thought it would be a good time to review some video marketing trends. After a bit of research on recent video marketing trends we found the following statistics:
Video ads have an average click-through rate of 1.84%. Not bad. This is up to three times the average for a standard PPC ad.’
65% of viewers watch more than 65% of a video. Again, another strong engagement factor.
Using the word “video” in an email subject line can boost open rates by up to 19%, with CTR — Click Through Rates — boosted as much as 50%. This of course will depend on how well you have targeted your email recipients and how interesting they might find the subject(s) of your videos to be.
Marketing surveys rank videos high for ROI, and also show that professional marketers are planning on using videos more in 2016 and 2017.
