The impact of video, especially in the smartphone era, makes it the predominant marketing tool for brands. Marketers see videos generating significant ROI, with 86% of marketers actively using videos to generate leads. And yet, why do brands that want to leverage video face challenges when creating content for video commerce?
From building a team of dedicated resources to the implications on operational costs, the process can be highly inefficient. For starters, in-house video teams’ skill levels and bandwidth can severely limit your brand’s ability to get the right message across. It also doesn’t help that most brands are not equipped for video production at scale. Outsourcing video production brings its own set of challenges – like handing over your brand’s messaging and reputation controls to an external entity.
Creating video commerce content is a necessity for staying competitive, but there is no reason why it has to be strenuous.
The Rise of Video Commerce
As brands move towards a phygital model, video commerce helps them navigate the transition between the physical and digital. For the new-age customer, the expectation is that shopping will be an immersive experience, with loyal customers expecting to be delighted at every engagement. It’s no wonder brands want to connect with their audiences through eCommerce videos. And video commerce is delivering on the promise of generating high engagement to drive conversions.
Even as buyer attention spans drop, videos continue to be an effective avenue for increasing brand awareness and loyalty. Immersive eCommerce videos let your brand tell its unique story while keeping everything that’s important front-and-center. Good video content has ‘a-ha!’ moments that will always add to a more personalized customer experience.
According to Statista, mobile accounts for 71% of retail website traffic and 61% of online shopping orders. For Gen Z and Millennials, who live on their phones, video is their medium of choice. Of course, while videos on social media encourage product discovery, purchases are still more likely to happen on your brand’s website.
Firework brings shoppable videos and livestreaming to websites, redefining the brand’s digital storefront. Creation Cloud is Firework’s latest solution for brands, reinventing content creation for video commerce.
