The Guide to Successful Silent Videos for Facebook Video Ads (+ Examples)

In recent years, Facebook has become a powerful platform for posting, sharing, and watching videos. In fact, nowadays, people watch more than 100 million hours of Facebook videos on a daily basis. However, unlike traditional viewing on television and even YouTube, a large percentage of people watch Facebook videos from their smartphones, and play them silently from their news feed. This is creating an environment where content creators and brands must compete in a soundless, auto-play Facebook environment. In addition, after Facebook went public and had pressure to monetize their platform, the social media giant turned to a paid-only ad-revenue model. Due to Facebook’s pay-to-play environment, brands have to pay for Facebook reach, and also make sure what they’re putting out is getting high return on investment (ROI).

The State of Video Marketing in 2020 [New Data]

A decade is a long time. I mean, just think back to the end of 2009. Barack Obama was about to enter his first full year in the White House, Farmville was the flavor of the month with 83 million monthly users on Facebook, and Avatar had just hit movie theatres worldwide, becoming — at the time — the highest-grossing movie ever. But even then, ten years ago, people were already starting to make big predictions about online video, and its potential to change the world of marketing. Not all predictions come true — but, as we reach the end of the decade, it’s fair to say that these ones certainly did. If any marketing trend can lay claim to being the defining tactic of the last ten years, video is surely up there. A decade ago, video was an expensive, pie-in-the-sky luxury. Since then, it’s become a staple — an accessible, affordable must-have tool to help attract audiences, explain products, and support customers. And now, as we once again march forward into a brand[…]

How to Embed Video in Email [Quick Tip]

Nowadays, video is an undeniably popular channel for marketing purposes. In fact, in 2019, 87% of businesses use video as a marketing tactic — a number drastically higher than just two years prior, when only 63% used video. If you’re an email marketer, I’m willing to bet you’ve considered how you might spruce up your subscription and click-through rates with video. It’s a good idea in theory, with two-thirds of consumers preferring video over text when learning about new products or services. In reality, however, it can be tricky. Major email clients including Gmail, Yahoo, and Outlook don’t support embedded videos, so your subscribers either won’t be able to watch your video within the email, or worse — they won’t see your email at all, because it’ll end up in their spam folders. Fortunately, there’s a creative workaround to help you embed part of your video within your email, and incentivize subscribers to click-through to watch the rest. Here, let’s explore how to do just that. Embed YouTube (or Any Other) Video in Email There[…]
