Today, your customer is always online, and you can reach them 24/7 no matter where they live.

While this marketplace is now virtual, people still want to experience your products and services before they buy. 64% of customers are more likely to purchase after watching a video.

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Every second of video contains 24-30 pictures. Video also gives your consumer persuasive narration, music and sound effects. If your video has closed-captioning, viewers can watch your video any time – especially if they’re in an environment where they cannot turn up the volume.

If you’re currently NOT using video to promote your brand, here are some things think about:
