What does it take to engage business video viewers?
Businesses everywhere have learned to rely on their web presence to drive sales.
There is a large variety of ways to do this, bu one thing that most of them have in common is that they want to connect with their potential customers in an engaging way. Social sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google Adsense are just a few ways to do that. But a new Animoto survey shows us that one medium increases sales for almost any firm: quality business video content.
In this survey they note that business video is a huge factor in the purchasing decision:
- 73 percent of all consumers are more likely to purchase after watching business videos explaining a product or service

Many folks don’t understand that next to Google, Youtube is the second largest search engine on the web. We see that viewers look for videos to get product reviews and to establish customer satisfaction, and just the overall sense that a firm puts out. Let’s look at some of the reasons why every entrapeneur should consider business videos to promote their company.
We’ve all heard that “You only get one chance to make a first impression”?
It’s especially true in the business world. When potential customers conduct an online search for a service or product they are often able to find helpful and informative business videos, In fact, a great business video leaves the majority of people with a positive impression of your firm.

Every smart business owner knows that their job isn’t finished once they have made a sale.
Constant engagement and support with customers is crucial if you want to earn consumer loyalty and repeat business. The survey found that not only do good business videos encourage customers to research their purchases and purchase additional items from the same company or brand, but they actually cause a company to be seen as more trustworthy. Therefore most business owners would probably agree that they can’t afford not to have quality business videos to describe or back up their products.
Just because business videos provide an outstanding way to find and connect with customers, it doesn’t mean that just any old video will do.
Excellence in business Video content is critical. If your business video is too long, many viewers will disengage and may choose to skip your video altogether. 83% of the viewers in this Animoto survey reported that the ideal business video for a product or service is five minutes or less.
