- Increased conversion rates – Not only is it fun, emotional, shareable and great for ROI, a growing consumer preference has meant video marketing has been used more for converting and lead generation.
The facts speak volumes, according to HubSpot Research (2017)*, videos on landing pages are capable of increasing conversion rates by over 80% and the mere mention of the word “video” in your email subject line increases open. rates by 19%, 90% of customers also say videos help them make buying decisions.
