Ways to use video marketing to grow your business in Kitsap County.

Video content marketing is when brands produce video content to raise their profile online. Video is usually published on either YouTube or a social network, although it can also come in the form of webinars, courses, live videos, or self-hosted videos.

When done well, video can be a powerful way for a brand to spread its message in a way that is easily accessible to a large audience. It works with both B2C and B2B content strategies.

  • The Importance of Video Marketing

Video marketing started in earnest in 2005 with the launch of YouTube. Google bought YouTube in October 2006, and by 2009 there were seven different ad formats on the platform.

As the technology to create quality videos gets easier, it’s become more popular with marketers. But that’s not the only reason video is the dominant form of communication today.

First, there was the rise of smartphone technology that made watching videos easier and more convenient. Then the pandemic boosted online media consumption by 215% in the U.S.

  • Video Converts More Customers

Businesses who use video grow revenue 49% faster year-over-year than companies who don’t. Furthermore, the average conversion rate of websites using video is 4.8% versus 2.9% for those who eschew video content.

As always, though, quality proves to be key driver when it comes to conversions.
