a picture paints a thousand words, a video paints a thousand more….
Why You Need Video:
By 2017, video will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic, according to Cisco. (The Guardian Online UK)
That’s the percentage of Internet users who view at least one video online over the course of a month.
That’s the number of Internet users who watch online video each day. Granted, a lot of those are watching the latest viral video, but an awful lot of them are looking for advice on how to do something or how to make something work better. And a whole of them are looking to buy a service or product.
The percentage of online shoppers at a major retailer’s website who said they find video helpful in making shopping and buying decisions. Retailers who provide online video to show off their products report that the products with video sell a lot more than products with no video.
That’s the percent of executives who told Forbes that they watch work-related videos on business websites at least once a week. The results breakdown:
50% watch business-related videos on YouTube
65% visit the marketer’s website after viewing a video
1.8 Million Words
That’s the value of one minute of video, according to Dr. James McQuivey of Forrester Research. Do you have the time and energy to write 1.8 million words? That’s the equivalent of 3,600 typical web pages. If you write an average of one web page an hour, it would take you 150 days of writing to achieve the impact of one minute of video.
and there are many more reasons, just ask Google.
The Paint The Town! Community Project happened over the weekend of the 7th – 8th November. This is the video I shot and edited of the event for the GoCarterton YouTube Channel.
