There are many different reasons why video marketing is so important when it comes to social media. One of the most important reasons is that videos help capture a users attention right away. When someone clicks on a video, they can get lost in the story. Videos also are very cost effective when it comes to marketing, so you get a lot of bang for your buck. Finally, you can retarget viewers on social media by looking at your viewer thresholds.
- Including movement in the opening seconds of a video helps capture the attention of the viewer.
- With video marketing on Facebook, costs may be only cents per video view.
- Facebook lets you retarget video viewers based on how long they watched.
