Uploading videos to YouTube that target common search terms can be a good way to get your business to appear on the first page of Google. However, there is a lot of technology that allows you to create good videos quickly and without a big budget. If a sufficiently good quality of production is accepted, an enormous amount of video content created ad hoc will be generated on platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. Tiger Fitness says that video marketing helped them achieve a 60% return rate from customers, three times more than what is normal in their industry.

The return on investment you get from your video will depend on several factors, such as how well you've organized your content strategy and the quality of your videos. Since people like to watch videos while traveling and the number of smartphone users is increasing, their video audience continues to grow more and more. Therefore, Facebook Live videos, webinar recordings, and other video material with a sufficiently good production quality will work as long as the content itself is engaging. The amount of options that marketers have means that there really is something for every business, even for those who don't have traditional video recording or editing skills.

While Facebook is one of the main places where small businesses and marketers share video content, it's not the only important video social network. When you search for the terms “How to edit videos” on the iPhone, Google shows three videos below the highlighted fragment and the “People also ask” section, but above the usual search results. It's not surprising that video content is such a good tool for this, since the visual element helps companies to clearly explain how things work. Vidyard's research shows that the average retention rate for videos overall is 52%, but the amount of time people spend watching your videos depends on the length of the videos.

According to Animoto, 90% of brands publish videos on YouTube at least once a week and 83% share videos on their Instagram feed (80% share them on Instagram Stories).
