The value of video is vast and limitless. The statistics above illustrate the ever-growing importance of video in the marketing world. Reaching target audiences has never been easier, but this is not met without challenges. Due to the fact that social media has allowed for so many different avenues of reaching target audiences, viewers may feel bombarded by an information overload. As a result, businesses and corporations have to invest in assuring that their information is not left on the side and forgotten— like a plain salad in an all you can eat buffet. An engaging video that stimulates the senses and offers an emotional appeal to audience members is a very effective and efficient way of achieving this goal. Social media avenues such as Facebook and Instagram thrive on their users posting and sharing videos. This has the potential to create high traffic for your company and business endeavors, if done correctly. Sharing videos on such avenues is easy and convenient, and can result in a much larger audience than first anticipated. We at ShakeMedia pride ourselves in providing the ultimate customer service. Your goals are our goals.
