Audience connection 

It’s a known fact that video content is more engaging than static images or standalone text. Video has the ability to hook and maintain the attention of your target audience, allowing you to convey your message in a more dynamic and memorable way.  

Video is also more personable, creating an emotional connection with the audience that results in higher authenticity, trust, and relatability. This can translate to higher retention rates, engagement, and overall interaction, contributing to a stronger online presence and greater loyalty. Meet the team, interview, and customer testimonials are all examples of video content tailored specifically to enhancing audience connection. 

SEO and online visibility 

Finally, video content can significantly enhance the search engine optimisation (SEO) of your organisation. Search engines like Google tend to prioritise video content in search results (think about the last time you Googled a ‘how-to’ only for video tutorials to appear within the top five results).  


Relevant and valuable video content is a great way for organisations to improve website ranking and visibility. If you need any more convincing, videos are more likely to be shared on social media compared to other forms of content, increasing inbounds links and further improving SEO. Increased online visibility through SEO can drive organic traffic to your website and expose your organisation to a wider audience.

Having a strategy in place for creating content is a great way to make sure that what you are creating aligns with your brand and goals.
