Acquisition & Attention Through Video Marketing

Personally, visual aides are more effective than words when it comes to grabbing my attention. I am assuming the majority of consumers behave similarly. The popular saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words” is extremely relevant when it comes to internet marketing. Imagine the effectiveness of a video. The number of people watching videos online now-a-days is increasing rapidly. Don’t believe me? Take a gander at YouTube’s recent statistics!

YouTube Stats:

  1. One billion unique users visit YouTube each month
  2. Over 6 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube
  3. 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute
  4. YouTube reaches more US adults ages 18-34 than any cable network
  5. Mobile makes up almost 40% of YouTube’s global watch time

It is not surprising that YouTube is the second largest search engine. Text will always be essential, but the use of video marketing can add value and put some emphasis on what you and your company are trying to tell your target market. There are four types of videos that can help your company: Company profiles, product demonstrations, testimonials, and video series (e.g. short advertisements, tutorials). All in all, these videos can boost brand awareness, reputation, and credibility.

The company actively posts content on YouTube when they launch new products. In this particular piece of the video series, Taco Bell cleverly pushes their happy hour deal. The video is amusing, entertaining, and effective.
