People love watching online videos, making them a highly effective tool for brands and marketers. Videos are a great way to attract customers when used to show off a brand’s unique selling points. Video explainers are an effective way for brands to educate and inform customers, as well as to tell a company’s story. Another benefit of video relates to social proof. Video testimonial from customers can add credibility to a product or service. The best videos are usually short and easy to digest. “How to” videos, vertical videos, and live streams are all popular.
