The Stats for Video Speak Volumes

The Stats for Video Speak Volumes

The stats for more video content speak volumes – and in an age of shrinking attention spans and overflowing social media feeds, brands would be foolish not to invest.

Dominant force

Over 80% of UK internet users watch online videos monthly [source: Hubspot’s Content Trends: Global Preferences report], making it the most consumed online content format.

Studies also show videos receive up to five times the engagement compared to static content on social media [source: Social Media Today].

Building trust and brand affinity

Video isn’t just about grabbing attention; it’s about fostering deeper connections. Videos allow you to showcase your brand’s values, mission, and expertise in a compelling way. They also put a face to your brand with employee testimonials, customer success stories and behind-the-scenes glimpses.

The key to success lies in understanding your audience and platform preferences.

Keep it snackable

Attention spans are short. Aim for concise videos, ideally under 2 minutes, for optimal engagement.

Platform specifics

Adapt your video style to each platform. Leverage explainer videos on LinkedIn, product demos on YouTube, and quick, trendy content for TikTok or Instagram Reels.

Localisation matters

Consider subtitles or captions for broader reach, especially if targeting a multilingual audience.
