Ten good reasons why you need video on your corporate website

May 20, 2017

Video is an almost limitless channel of marketing that enables brands to connect with their clients like never before.

Every business could benefit from using video to tell their story. We live in a digital world and your website is capable of so much more than printed literature, so why not make those images on your page come to life with video, sound, graphics and voiceover?

Research has proven that people consume information much more effectively from a video than text, and will spend longer on the page if there’s a video playing, so here are the top ten reasons why video on your website is so important.
