The features of your products will be better explained
Animated explainer videos can enhance your business by offering a simplified explanation of what you are good at.
Do you know what they say … an image says a thousand words? Clients will gain a better understanding of what your company can do for them by watching animated explainer videos and listening to someone rather than reading a boring text.
Additionally, you will have the creative freedom to illustrate your services through visuals and graphics.
That is to say that you will finally be able to present the story of your brand the way you have always imagined.
Animated explainer videos help retaining information about your products
Animated explainer videos will not only help your clients understand the value of your services or products, but they will also make your company memorable.
Studies have proven that images (plus voice) are processed much faster than just text. This means that your website visitors will be more likely to talk about your brands with their friends or colleagues.
Did you know that 92% of people trust recommendations coming from friends and they are 4 times more likely to buy a product or service when referred by friends?
As a matter of fact, word-of-mouth generates 2 times more sales than paid ads.
More traffic and higher Google ranking
There is no surprise that Google loves videos on your website. Studies have shown that pages containing videos bring more traffic to your website and help you rank higher on search engines.
Your page will have 50 times more chances to rank on the first page of Google if it contains a video compared to a text-only.
Although Google’s algorithm is incapable of being fully explored one thing is certain: it is prioritising rich, blended search results with unique content, and multimedia content such as videos.
Plus, the longer someone stays on your website, the more Google rewards your website and will push it up in searches. And animated explainer videos will do exactly that – will keep your potential clients more on your website.
In agreement with the results of Wyzowl’ annual video marketing survey, 79% of consumers reported that they would rather prefer to watch a video to find out more about a product than just read a text.
