The Digital Marketing industry can’t be imagined without Videos. Video and its forms are here to stay for long where many social platforms have been quick to adjust them( like Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter, etc.)
Everyday changes occur, and something new is invented. If realized, people have changed their mode to look for information, find new brands (products/services), make a purchasing decision, etc.
Buyers don’t stay in a single lane and get laid by the one who engages with them in the most realistic and interactive way, irrespective of whether you are a B2B or B2C marketer. To be honest, if you don’t have a purposeful story to visually portray, like that of a one-in-a-million story, then you probably need to find another way out to stand out in the competition.

# No, ‘Not just a Video’, it must possess a Purpose!
On average, a consumer gets his inbox flooded with around 10,000 plus brand messages out of which, some put an effort to add a few visual elements which are more generic and lack context.

It's undeniable if I say that the Videos are great at conveying messages in an effective way than text and images as a visual data can hit a human brain nimbly at all the right places, and luckily at the right time. They make communication efficient and smooth that achieves the goal of digital marketing as a whole to spread your message across.

“Audience engagement is inversely proportional to the Video Length.”
Nowadays, to have a catch hold of people’s attention is no less than a hard nut to crack. What do you do first when you encounter a video notification of Facebook feed or any other favorite application? Is it that you directly open the video? No, no ways. You check its length, see whether it's worth your time and then press play.
The video length is one of the influencing factors to attract prospects, the lengthy the video the more chances are there that the lead will be lost.
What if the length of the video is two minutes, is that time enough for covering all the aspects of the story?
Whatever medium you choose, make sure that you consider the fact, where your potential lead will encounter your story, and how quickly can you get them engaged within it and what do you want your viewer to do after they have seen your video.

Without any traces of doubt businesses will incline towards embedding videos in their emails, posts, brand ads, social media and much more to appeal online and be a step closer to their target audience.
Visual elements and visual search ain’t going anywhere soon, instead are the trending fields of marketing and technology which are taking grounds where any business cannot afford to miss investing in videos and its other types.
Digital Marketing today isn’t only restricted to making a profit but it is to go beyond the traditional norms and make a breakthrough in the industry by being more rational and visible where video marketing aims to fulfill the same.
