According to MarketingSherpa, online video is second only to word-of-mouth for its ability to influence decision makers in every stage of the purchase lifecycle. People trying to decide whether to contact you, buy from you or learn more about you are more likely to do any of these things when you have a video on your website.

Benefits and applications

Brand awareness at an event

If your goal is to increase quantity and quality of face-to-face meetings with decision makers at a trade show, video can help you do that. One company created a video to use as part of a six-step event marketing campaign. The company used the video on social media to build brand awareness prior to the show. At the show, a printed promotional banner with a QR code leading to the video asked the viewer to visit their booth. The video was played at the booth, and was also used as part of the company’s thank you process after the show. The results? Face to face meetings increased by 218% over those of the previous year.

Boost sales

An online jeweler wanted to help customers and prospects visualize what their jewelry would look like when worn. The company strives to give shoppers the best online experience and decided that online video was the best way to bring their products to life. Visitors to the site don’t just see the products lying against a dark velvet box; they’re able to see how a bracelet fits on a wrist and how a ring looks on someone’s hand. The addition of video increase sales by 40%, and since customers were now more confident in their purchases, the company also realized a 24% reduction in returns. Client after client, video viewers convert to sales more easily.

Increase email open rate

Whether you’re a non-profit wanting to build awareness and procure donations or a financial services company seeking new customers, it’s hard to get your point across if people don’t open your emails. Video can make the difference. One disaster response non-profit saw an increase of 40% in email open rate once video was added, with over 56% of recipients watching the video to completion and gifts to the organization increasing by $9000 after the first email campaign. A bank realized an 82.9% email open rate after incorporating video. And a manufacturer improved their open rates up to 24% after embedding strategic video elements. The data proves it: the use of video creates awareness, builds trust, and inspires action.
