Power of Video

Video is taking over the world because… IT JUST WORKS!!! It engages website visitors in a way that text or pictures simply can’t, and gets messages across quicker and more effectively. Video marketing is a compelling and successful way to gain and hold the attention of your target audience, with marketing teams using video marketing as their preferred medium to communicate with their audiences worldwide. As Dr. James McQuivey, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research famously said: ‘If a picture paints 1,000 words, then one minute of video is worth 1.8 million’.
