2018 was a huge year for video content. Whether you are an advertiser or a social media user, you’ve surely noticed how Facebook, Instagram, and other social media accounts have changed how they present content. Video has become a staple on everyone’s newsfeed, and it has greatly improved how we consume content.
This is why more and more businesses are starting to use video marketing to promote their brand. Companies are starting to use corporate video production and explainer videos just to keep up with these changes.
Mobile Device Adaptation
With the availability of mobile devices, it has now become easier for consumers to watch videos the want. In fact, based on the Digital in 2018 in South East Asia report of We Are Social, mobile connectivity in SEA was at 141 percent. This percentage is expected to grow by 2019.
These numbers only show that more people are accessing and watching online videos through their mobile devices. It also presents an opportunity for businesses to engage an audience primed and ready to consume video content. As a report from HubSpot Research revealed last year, 54 percent of consumers want to see videos from brands-—more than any other content format.
Here are more reasons why video shows a lot of potential to attract SEA consumers:
- Mobile is now the first screen for video
Gone are the days when television is the first screen people turn to for video consumption. According to data released by mobile analytics service Flurry, people these days spend an average of 2 hours and 57 minutes on their smartphones and tablets. This is the first time that the statistics on the time spent on mobile screens has already surpassed the time spent watching television. Moreover, children now prefer tablets than TVs, with more than 1/3 of children aged 5 to 15 having their own device.
- Improves Social Engagement
Video content is a good way to improve engagement on your social media accounts. According to Statista, there will be 2.95 billion social media users by the year 2020. Therefore, focusing on social media networks to promote your brand can provide a great return. You can use videos to boost your business’ online engagement and conversion rates.
Through producing helpful and relevant video content on Facebook, Instagram, or other social media accounts, you will encourage your audience to like, comment, and share your content. Engagement is very important these days, especially now that people are bombarded with content on a daily basis.
- Video has the highest engagement rate
Video viewership is growing each day. On Facebook alone, there is a whopping 8 billion video views each day. In the same We Are Social report mentioned above, it has shown that out of all the content formats being posted by Facebook pages in South East Asia, video content has consistently received the highest average engagement rates. It has received 9.94% in Brunei, 9.70% in Indonesia, and 6.27% in Cambodia.
