The Popularity of Video in Social Media Marketing

Video is one of the most popular forms of content on social media, and it’s no wonder why. People love watching videos, and they’re especially drawn to video content that is entertaining and informative. Video marketing is an excellent way to reach your target audience with engaging content that will capture their attention and interest.

There are a few key reasons why video is so popular on social media. First, people are visual learners. According to a 2020 Social Media Week survey, 95% of social media users claim to retain more information if it is received via video. As Internet Advisor describes, video is key. Second, video is easy to consume and can be watched in short bursts, which makes it perfect for social media consumption. And finally, people love sharing videos, which helps to spread your message far and wide. Which takes us to our next point.

Marketing Reach of Social Media

As the use of social media continues to grow, so does its potential as a tool for marketing. Businesses of all sizes are finding that social media is an effective way to reach and engage with their target audiences.

One reason why social media marketing is so effective is because of the reach it has. With over 2 billion active users on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, businesses have the opportunity to connect with a vast number of people.

Another reason why social media marketing is effective is because it allows businesses to create more personal and engaging content. Video marketing is one type of content that is particularly well-suited for social media, as it can be used to tell a story, build relationships, and show off a brand’s personality.

Marketing Efficiency with Social Media

Animoto found that 91% of businesses were pleased with the ROI for social media marketing video production in 2019. Ninety-three percent of businesses in the same survey credit video marketing on social media with finding a new client. Therefore, this high satisfaction rate comes as no surprise. In fact, according to a study by The Social Media Examiner, 74% of marketers say that social media (and thus social media marketing) is essential for their business.

But what makes social media marketing so effective? One of the key reasons is that audiences respond extremely well to video content. In fact, according to HubSpot, 78% of people say they’ve watched an explainer video to learn more about a product or service. And Cisco predicts that by 2021, online videos will make up more than 82% of all consumer internet traffic.

The trend in favor of social media marketing via video will continue.

By 2022 there will be an estimated 1 million videos crossing the internet per second.

This is why hiring a professional to make sure your video has excellent sound, picture, and content quality is vital. Anyone can hold up a phone and make a recording. Just look at the success of TikTok! However, not everyone can stop scrolling consumers in their tracks.

At Morton Visuals, we do just that. With one video, you will have access to users across all platforms. You can target a certain audience to ensure advertising dollars are not wasted.
