Finding Video ROI

dollar signNo doubt… video production can get expensive. Unless you have an eye on video ROI. That could change your perspective.

We have some low-cost options, but if you want full-service storytelling it’s going to cost you at least $4,000. Some company’s don’t blink at that. For others, it’s a big commitment.

Return on investment is something every business has to judge on their own, but there are some statistics out there that can help guide you. Here are some I have come across recently…

Video Isn’t Easy

The highest percentage of marketers (49.8%) describe video content as “difficult to create.” (cough, cough… which is why it’s good to hire a professional video storyteller)  |  eMarketer

I’m not here to tell you people will watch your video and immediately line-up to buy your product or service. What I will say is if you tell a good story, you’re going to put yourself in a good light… making it easier for people to buy from you.

Video is a great way to create a good first impression. It can help endear you to your prospects, and we buy from people we like.

That’s the power of video. That’s a good return on investment.
