It’s been proven that people are 85 percent more likely to buy a product after viewing a product video than just reading the advertisement. Learn more facts about how visual media stack up against written material here.

Video works because it immediately grabs the audience’s attention, allowing you to effectively get your message across.

A great way to implement video is with your email marketing campaigns.
