Video has been threatening to kill the radio star for a while now. However, this time it’s no idle threat! Globally, video will be 82% of all consumer internet traffic by 2021 (Source: Cisco).
Yes, that’s next year. So, if you haven’t been prioritising video content as part of your digital marketing strategy, it’s time to act.
This doesn’t mean that written or static content will be abandoned. It just means that video needs to play a bigger role for brands than it has done previously, and it’s about having an integrated marketing strategy.
5G will amp up the pace
With 5G internet speed now more widely available for faster downloads, brands can have more confidence that their carefully-considered and engaging content plays correctly and reaches the right audience.
Video content creation doesn’t need to be time-consuming
Historically, one of the biggest challenges for brands and agencies alike has been the time, resources and budget it takes to create high-quality video.
That’s changed with both tech advances and a shift in consumer expectations. Production costs have gone down and users also don’t expect Oscar-worthy productions for all content. In fact, more natural video can work in a brand’s favour, as it speaks directly to the chosen audience and is more authentic.
Great video tells a story quickly and effectively
We know it’s a brave new world in brand strategy. Twenty years ago, brands just wanted to be found. Now your audience needs to know you, understand you and appreciate you before they get into bed with you. Rightly so! You need to create trust with consumers and they need to like what you stand for.
