Online Video Production – Advertising For The Future


Video marketing is significant – and we’re not just saying that because we’re a production company! But, here at VMP in Brisbane, we know how important online video production has become in the current media space. In this blog, we’re going to keep it short and sweet and share with you a little information about web advertising plus a few fun facts we picked up along the way!

Less ‘Painful’ Than Reading Pages

3,600 web pages. That’s the value of one online video according to Dr. McQuivey of Forrester Research. There is no doubt that watching a 60-second video is much less painful than reading pages upon pages of information when you first enter a website. Video marketing takes a website from being a brochure on the internet and injects life and movement into it. Thanks to the influence of TV, most people have become accustomed to receiving their information via sounds and imagery rather than the written word, giving online videos (and the website they’re promoting) even more credibility.

Beneficiary Marketing

Online marketing is also one of the best beneficiary marketing strategies. The reach online videos have is effective and efficient. 80% of audiences can recall a video ad they have seen online within the last 30 days and of that group over a quarter then acted on it. Those are some pretty awesome statistics. There is a huge marketing opportunity that not only includes promotional advertisements but also testimonials, product information, entertainment, even unscheduled presentations to people who may just be browsing all websites or too busy to schedule an actual appointment.

It’s pretty easy to see why online video is the single most practical use for marketing energy. Start with a smart strategy and goal in mind you can watch engagement rates, click-through rates and conversation rates soar. And if you’re not using video marketing, you’re losing your customers to competitors who do.
