Share Video To Grow Your Email List
You are probably aware that many more people are likely to watch a video than they are to read a text. A recent survey confirmed this when it found that 80% of the participants agreed that videos convey more powerful messages than the written word.
This will explain why around 300 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube every single minute. There are billions of page views on YouTube daily and this is growing. Contrast that with the sharp decline in newspaper circulation over the last few years.
Why are Videos more Popular?
It is all to do with the configuration of our brains. We respond to images, motion, and sound instinctively, and around 90% of the information that our brains respond to is visual. We process visuals 60,000 times faster than we can process text.
All of this means that video takes away the complexities of communication and enables the absorption of complex ideas more easily. Reading is a much more recent development for humans. For thousands of years before reading we were able to interpret moving objects, and associated sounds made this even easier.
Text is more Intellectually Engaging
This does not mean that there is no longer a place for text. It works great for intellectual engagement where there is an argument to be thought through. But a video will engage people on a more emotional level. Emotions run deeper than intelligence.
When a video is used it is much easier for the viewer to connect to ideas and products because there is visual storytelling. The video will always have the upper hand on text in this regard, which is great news for you marketing your product or brand.
