“Social video generates 1200% more shares than text and images combined.” – Brightcove
Video has long been thought of as a ‘unique’ feature for a website, something left to those with large budgets, or even a technique that has been segmented to just TV. While video has been around for a long time, it has gained incredible momentum over recent years in the digital realm.
Video used in social media gets 1200% more shares than text and images combined? That is an incredible statistic, and it shows the impact that video has in today’s society.
USA Today recently reported that Facebook has an average of 8 billion daily video views from over 500 million active users.
But that’s not all.
“Businesses using video grow company revenue 49% faster year-over-year than organizations without video.” – Aberdeen

We live in the age of video. With the average attention span of 7 seconds, it is impossible to get people to read long amounts of text anymore, especially on social media. The key to fixing that – video.
Video allows a brand the opportunity to capture viewers attention, share a heartfelt story, and deliver necessary content – all in a short amount of time.
