      Leave aside other social platforms, for almost 84% of video marketers, Facebook alone serves as the primary video marketing channel.

       

      And if we look into similar statistics for other prominent social media channels such as Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, etc., the numbers are only going to rise.

       

      With the exponential rise in the number of users, brands now have an exciting opportunity they can capitalize on by using videos in their digital marketing strategies.

      1) Positions your brand effectively:

      This goes without saying that social platforms mainly deal in visuals, and to be specific, video content.

       

      In an environment where the attention span of humans is already low, visuals can persuade viewers into abandoning their continuous scrolling and devote their attention to a brand’s video.

      2) Reach a global audience:

      Contrary to the popular saying – The world is an oyster, the social media world is huge in a manner where brands have a wider spectrum to communicate their product to a global audience. 

       

      By sharing videos in the social arena, brands can leverage the power of the platform’s global reach and invite attention even from audiences across oceans to their designated website or landing page.

      3) Encourage engagement and boost sales:

      With the advent of social platforms such as Instagram going heavy in promoting their in-app shopping feature, retail & consumer brands can utilize animated videos and directly encourage their audience in checking out their products. 

       

      Once the viewers land on the website, they can be again retargeted with a new set of videos created for the next stage of the conversion funnel.

      Want an animated video to increase the performance of your social media marketing campaigns?
