Today, video is one of the most popular content formats, with 85% of users watching videos every month. Videos are static post streams that attract viewers’ attention, improve SEO, and are easily shared across platforms. The video is easy for the user to watch and allows people to be on the sidelines longer. 72% of shoppers want to know about their products and services through video. It’s no wonder that 74% of marketers say video marketing is more effective at generating leads than static posts.
However, in the last few years, the average attention time has been reduced to 8 seconds, making it extremely difficult to attract viewers. What else can marketers and salespeople do to attract their audience? Will you hit me on my shoulder? Are you talking to them?
More interaction with the viewer through interactive video
Interactive video allows consumers to interact directly with the brand and have real conversations based on their reactions. This new type of video gives viewers the ability to interact with the content itself, creating a unique user experience.
Interactive post video is smart, dynamic and personalized, perfect for optimizing any brand. Forty-three percent of consumers prefer interactive video content to other types of video content because they can choose what information and when to display it.
