Use Video in Every Step of Your Marketing Funnel

Connecting with new customers is probably the most natural way to use video in your marketing funnel. From ads to how-to's to expert interview and conference recordings, video can be a great medium to connect with the people who stand to get the most out of using your solution. A video is one of the best tools to do that because it leaves a lasting impression on those who watch it. Unlike the demo, the explainer is a low-cost way to demonstrate the power of your product as it can be placed readily available on your homepage for your audience to watch on their own terms.

By then, video will be a necessity rather than a novel way to carve out a place in the minds of your audience.
