How Video Content Impacts Marketing (infographic)

When it comes to marketing, content is king. The type of content you create has an enormous impact on how viral your marketing campaign can be. Video based content is always the most successful simply because it requires more engagement, allowing more information to get across to your target audience. It is also generally a more entertaining form of communication, which makes it more likely that people would actively engage with it. One drawback to video content production, however, is that it is more expensive than other forms of content and requires a larger time investment as well. So, the question to be answered is, “Is video based content worth it?”
