Make an Explainer Video

According to a recent CISCO study, in 2019, 80% of the world’s Internet traffic will be video.


Explainer videos have boomed in popularity over the recent period due to their affordability and proven effectiveness in growing a business and driving a significant amount of incremental traffic to your website.

They’re fantastic vehicles for delivering large amounts of information in a creative and friendly way. It’s the shortest, highest-octane explanation of what you do, why you matter, or how you’re different. Advertising your video on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter will also bring in more views and clicks than traditional text-based, image-based advertisements too. This all translates to an increase in your marketing effectiveness.

So if you’re an organization with a product, service, idea, or cause that’s in need of simplification, read these key statistics surrounding explainer video marketing:
