Video content is becoming more important and consumers prefer it because it is easy to digest especially if it’s entertaining, engaging and educative. Every marketing strategy needs to involve video content and a smooth means of implementation.

It is easily accessible to everyone, either online or offline and it is easy to share. There are different types of videos out there and part of creating an effective content marketing strategy is having a solid understanding of your purpose before you sit down and create the video (or any other type of content, for that matter). To that end, you want to make sure both the type of the video and the channel purpose (if you’re posting on social) fit the purpose of the video itself.

According to research, 81% of brands use videos to market their products. Videos are amazing for getting all sorts of messages out there, and if we think in terms of practicality, a short, unique explainer video can do a world of difference when it comes to educating people on the ins and outs of your particular product. By using storytelling and unique types of media you can easily catch people’s attention and hold it while they’re actually entertained.

Depending on how it matches your product, you may want to use an animated or illustrated explainer video to stand out from the crowd (and not come across as too in-your-face).
