8 Big Video Marketing Results Numbers
According to the Online Publishers Association, that’s the percentage of Internet users who recall watching a video ad on a website they visited in the past 30 days. It gets even better. Of that 80%, 46% took some action after viewing the ad. In fact:
- 26% looked for more information about the subject of the video
- 22% visited the website named in the ad
- 15% visited the company represented in the video ad
- 12% purchased the specific product featured in the ad
That’s how much more likely website visitors are to buy a product on an online retail site after watching a video. In addition, visitors who view videos stay on the site an average of 2 minutes longer than those who don’t view videos, comScore says.
Online Video Marketing Is Not Just for Retailers
An Australian real estate group reports that real estate listings with videos receive 403% more inquiries than those without videos. In other words, real estate ads with videos generate quadruple the leads of those without videos.
According to Forbes Insight, that’s the percentage of senior executives who’d rather watch a video than reading text. About 65% of those who view a video click through to visit the vendor website, 50% look for more information and 45% report that they contacted a vendor after seeing an online video ad. About 50% of those who viewed an online marketing video went on to make a purchase for their business.
And It’s Not Just Online
In 2010, an Implix email marketing survey found that including a video in an introductory email increased the click-through rate by 96%. That’s near twice as many people clicking through to your website when you include a video in your marketing emails.
The Forrester Marketing group surveyed businesses in 2010 and found that video did even better. When marketers included a marketing or explainer video in an email, the click-through rate increased by 200% to 300%.
Do your email subscribers drop like flies? Eloqua, an automated email marketing provider, noted that including video in an introductory email reduced the number of subscriber opt-outs by 75%. Maintaining that contact is a vital part of establishing a relationship with prospects.
One online marketer reported a 51% increase in subscriber-to-lead conversion rates when a video was included in an email marketing campaign.
Summary: Video marketing increases sales and leads. If you’re not using video marketing, you’re losing customers to those who do.
