We’ve all seen the numbers – video performed beautifully for content marketers in 2016 and the numbers indicate that by 2020 video consumption will reach 82% of all internet traffic.
As is a challenge for any modern-day marketer, when something works the competition comes running and you can often find yourself back in the midst of the fight for eyeballs and mind-share within the newsfeed. In this post we’ll be exposing the technology that is giving many brands an edge on the competition.
If there has ever been a skeleton key that unlocks doors to your audience and takes engagement to new heights, it’s live video content. Sure, pre-recorded video content is a prized feather in the cap for marketers but take a look at how live video content is performing in relation to its pre-recorded predecessor.
Remaining relevant and exciting in the newsfeed is paramount for content and social media marketers across all industries. Social media titans within finance and banking, cosmetics, hospitality, spirits, and healthcare, to name a few, have all turned to live video content as a means of increasing quality time with their existing and prospective customers.
The best part about leveraging live it that it doesn’t have to be a high-stress and high-involvement addition to your marketing mix. In fact, most of the brands that are delivering top-notch live video content are using simple equipment; HD cell phone video, a few live video feeds, and brief snippets of pre-recorded content. The age-old childhood acronym lends appropriately to live video broadcasting, let’s KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweetheart).
