Why Video?

Video is dominating how consumers learn about products and services. Hubspot research suggests that 50% of consumers want to see videos from the brands that they use. Video surpassed other content over the past several years and is growing faster than all other mediums combined.

 According to Wyzowl statistics (simply put an asterisk below the statistics):

  1. 82% of businesses feel video marketing is an important part of their strategy.

  2. 2. 83% of businesses believing that video marketing gives them a good ROI.

  3. Adding a product video on your landing page can increase conversions by 80%.

  4. 74% of users who watched a video about a product subsequently bought it.

  5. 57% of consumers say that videos gave them more confidence to purchase online.

  6. You’re 53 times more likely to show up first on Google if you have a video embedded on your website. Since Google now owns YouTube, there has been a significant increase in how much videos affect your search engine rank.

The benefits of video to encourage brand recall and subsequent purchase are undeniable in the era of marketing analytics and measurement. Whether you’re assessing the 300% increase in click-through rates in when a video is added to e-mail marketing or the fact that video is 35% of all ad spending online. Forbes suggests that video is critical to building your brand.

Video content is likely to engage us and ignite emotions. Content marketing has become incomplete without video as the age of YouTube and the video experience has become the medium that leading brands use to attract new customers and better engage existing customers.

I worked with Darcy at Hinge Visual on an international project through University of Toronto. Darcy made two documentary short films about our international surgical outreach in Uganda. A medical documentary in an African country can be a daunting task. In particular the film maker has to have the right balance of proactive filming and cultural sensitivity. Darcy struck that balance to a tee. He was universally liked by all and a pleasure to work with. His professional and friendly manner allowed people to be natural. The final product he delivered was exceptional and is something that the team members, University of Toronto, the department of ophthalmology, and the Ugandan surgeons can all be proud of.

Thank you Darcy for your dedication, hard work, and creativity.
