What Is Video Marketing?

Video marketing is the set of tools that are orchestrated to make a video an advertising act, as a way to capture an audience interested in your niche, or an end in itself, as a digital product.

The most common is to act as an attraction for those interested in your product, so we must share, as always, quality content. And you also know, based on that fact, the more, the better.

Why video marketing is useful for your business

The trend, since we left the industrial age and entered the information age, is clear: everything will be much more multimedia. Sites like Instagram or others, of only videos, will be the future. So we must react in time and start creating audiovisual assets as soon as possible. People are much more entertained with a video than with a single image. Let’s not say with a paragraph that costs to read. We must always give our client what he asks, even if he does not even know what he is asking for.

Preproduction of the video

Growth strategies

  • Content: the more you take care of your content, the better this content will be and the more subscribers you will have.
  • Audience: the more attention you give to your audience, the more interest in your products you will have when you get one.


•Product: the better your product is, the better your audience’s reaction will be after buying it. •Reinvest in your content: once you have made money after the sale of your product, it is time to reinvest part in better content (better audio, light, video, shots, etc.).


This will give you more subscribers and start over. This is the cycle of tremendous success that Borja Montón talks about in his course masterenvideomarketing.com (so that those interested can continue to learn more about this art).

Reasons Why You Should Do Video Marketing NOW (+ Infographics)

What the content is the king we already know. But what still seems to be unclear is that the king already has a queen: the video.

The love story between the content and the video has been forged little by little. It is more than evident that the material maintains an idyll with the video that will last (we do not know if forever) at least many years. And this relationship appeals to Internet users so much that audiovisual material already accounts for 78% of all content consumed on the network. Something that brands can not continue to ignore.

But if you still have any doubt about the need to use Video Marketing in your digital strategy -or you die of laziness because you do not know where to start-, here are some reasons that will give you the boost you need.

The numbers

100 million Internet users consume video every day. 9 out of 10 see the videos of the brands that follow and 65% of them end up visiting the web after doing so. Almost half of the Internet users aged 25-54 share online videos that already account for 50% of all mobile traffic. In 2018 it will represent 84% of all Internet traffic.

They are easy to consume

Consuming video does not require any effort on the part of the user (that we recognize, it is something vague by nature). Just press play and look. Audiovisual content is infinitely more entertaining than reading the text and draws the user’s attention for much longer.

They are shareable

Videos are more likely to be shared than any other content. Especially those with emotional content and humor. But, eye! Never tell an agency “I want a viral.” Virals are not born, they are made. What matters is knowing your audience enough to give you exactly what you want. And they will be the ones who decide if they share it and how much. But to start working, keep in mind one fact: 90% of the videos that are shared contain stories that appeal to emotions (whether positive or negative).

In an Email Marketing strategy,  the inclusion of video is almost magic: it increases the opening rate by 5.6%, the CTR by more than 96% (according to Implix), and decreases the losses by 75% (according to Forrester Marketing). In the case of landing pages, conversions increase by 80% when they include videos.

Encourage engagement

In one minute of video, the same information as in 1.8 million words. The video allows you to explain your message with many more resources and in a much more creative and emotional way. The images, sounds, editing, and voiceover, are much more efficient in telling your story. Also, it is proven that 80% of users remember a brand much better after having consumed videos of it.…

Another Reasons Why You Should Do Video Marketing

Contribute to SEO

As the videos capture the attention -increasing the time of permanence in our page- and they are shared, they benefit the natural positioning. Individually, they are 50 times more likely to appear on the first page of Google than any other content (according to Forrester Research). A user can spend 5 minutes consuming videos on the site of a brand from his tablet (it is the device where they are most consumed) and three minutes on the smartphone.

They begin to compete with television

Surely you’ve noticed that you yourself-or many people you know-watch TV less and less to consume series and online content. Well, this perception already has figures. 42% of online video users admit that they see less television than before. Also, the prime time of both audiovisual contents coincide-from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm and from 10:00 pm to 11:00 pm-, which predicts that this trend will end up becoming a real competition.

They do not have to be expensive

When we talk about Video Marketing, we do not necessarily refer to large audiovisual productions. Making Video Marketing is not hanging the TV spot on YouTube or making a display of it. The audiovisual pieces must be designed specifically for digital. And while a campaign video requires a professional production to carry it out, the video content of your blog or social networks can be as homemade as your users’. From uploading a product tutorial to YouTube recorded with a mobile phone -that is, with a tripod and something funny- to small funny or explanatory audiovisual pills with any of the dozens of mobile applications (Vine, Instagram, Cameo, MixBit, etc.) very easy to use and that allow editing, putting filters and adding music and texts from your smartphone.

Users and social platforms have already jumped on the car

The users are already consuming video (you upload yourself to the car or not). And social platforms know this and act accordingly. After buying Vine, at the end of January, Twitter opened the possibility to record, edit and share 30-second videos from their app.

Snapchat, for example, is reaping great success (with more than 100 million users) thanks, in large part, to its functionality of videos that self-destruct a few seconds after being seen. It even allows retransmitting live in a chat. Facebook, also aware of the importance of online video, has bought the startup QuickFire Networks, which compresses videos to reduce the consumption of data by its users.

Online video – and consequently use it for our marketing strategies – is a revolution underway that in 2018, according to forecasts, will represent 84% of Internet traffic. A revolution that connects you with your audience, speaking the same language as them, creating the content that interests them and in the format they like. You join?…
