While the quality of your product images is critical to online selling success, video content can take it to the next level. In the current culture, watching a product review, a “how-to” video, comedy bit, or educational video is a standard part of everyday life, and you can make it work for your business.
Online marketing is all about achieving the highest conversion rate possible. You may be surprised to discover the degree to which video could increase your online sales. According to Hyperfine Media:
- 200% to 300% increase in click-through rate on emails with video content.
- 80% increase in conversion rates with video content on a landing page.
