Video Is the New Face of Content Marketing

Video is the new face of content marketing and those who include video in their digital marketing strategies are seeing greater engagements with target consumers.

Twitter revolutionized the way in which we communicate by limiting our communications to 140 characters. This limitation complemented the shortened attention span of consumers by forcing users to be concise. As a result, consumers were able to quickly obtain and comprehend the message.

Today, video is becoming the new way to reach consumers as visual information is processed much faster than text. And the faster your consumers retain your marketing messages, the less you’ll have to market to them.

Video is becoming the new face of content marketing and the infographic created by the Infographic Design Team highlights stats that explain why the influence of videos is on the rise.
