As more content marketers turn to video to resonate with their target audience, new research suggests that this form of media is going to continue to grow in importance.
Vidyard and Demand Metric recently came together to conduct “The State of Video 2020” report, and statistics showed that in 2020, video was the most important form of content for most organizations (76%). This is compared to 71% who said the same just one year earlier.
In the future, the majority of marketers (83%) believe that video will become even more important to their organization. This was compared to just 13% who said they believe its importance will stay the same, and 4% who said it will decline in significance.
Overall, most marketers (48%) said that in 2020, their ROI from video continued to get better. This was compared to 47% who said the same back in 2019.
