15 Apr Marketing Trends 2021: Data Drives Using Video
The numbers don’t lie. One of the biggest trends in marketing is likely a task you’re already doing. If not, video content needs to be in your marketing mix. Research shows that data drives using video and the trend is growing.
When customers want to learn about your products or services, they’re turning to video. It’s more visually appealing and easier to understand than the written word, and experts say video makes it easier for prospective customers to decide if a product or service is relevant to them. This is a trend that saw big growth in 2020 and research shows we’re just at the beginning of a continued serge.
