Video is currently the content of choice - and is likely to remain so for some time. Five billion videos are watched on YouTube every single day and, according to Hubspot, video is the number one type of content consumers want to see from brands. It's effective too - video on a landing page can increase conversion by 80%, while including it in an email can generate a 200 - 300% increase in click-through rates.
Animated explainer videos are one of the most popular types of video content with consumers. As a result, there are many ways in which your business could benefit from investing in one.
These short, punchy videos are designed to get a consumer to take a specific action, such as signing up to a mailing list or downloading a document. They are usually 30 seconds to two minutes in length and use colourful images and characters to attract attention, to communicate and to drive action.
Expand social strategy
Every social channel now provides options for sharing video and this is a powerful way to reach customers. 82% of Twitter users watch video content on Twitter and 100 million hours of video are consumed every day on Facebook.
It's well known that online users have a very short attention span. Brands have a matter of seconds to attract someone's attention. Animated explainer videos are structured so as to make an impact in those first few crucial seconds, drawing the user's attention and holding it while the rest of the video plays out. If you're looking for better ways to communicate with consumers, an animated explainer video is very effective.
