Video Marketing Survey: 71% Say Video Conversion Rates Outperform Other Marketing Content


Marketers who fail to incorporate videos into their content marketing strategy may be overlooking a potential goldmine.

According to a video benchmark report from video marketing and analytics platfrom Vidyard, 71 percent of marketers said their video content’s conversion performance was either somewhat or much better compared to other types of marketing content.

Based on a poll conducted by marketing research firm Demand Metric and sponsored by Vidyard, the video marketing benchmark report included survey data from 235 respondents representing B2B, B2C and agency organizations.

When asked if they believed their video marketing ROI was getting better, staying the same, or declining, nearly half of the survey respondents claimed video content ROI was improving.

Eighty-six percent of the survey respondents said they were measuring their video content engagement rates, but, at 48 percent, the majority were only analyzing basic metrics like views and shares.

Twenty four percent of the respondents were tracking more intermediate metrics such as average viewing duration.

Fourteen percent used advanced engagement metrics, including views by embed location, viewer drop-off rates, viewing heat maps and attribution to sales pipeline.

While it’s important to note the survey respondent pool was limited with only 235 responses, nearly all survey participants – 95 percent – rated the importance of video as becoming somewhat more, or far more, important in terms of marketing and sales content.

Of the survey respondents, 17 percent claimed their organization produced more than 50 videos per year, and 32 percent were producing anywhere from 11 to 50 videos a year.

Twenty-five percent said they were creating less than five videos per year.

If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages.
