It’s no wonder videos have a higher engagement than text or image content.
In numbers, they correspond to 80% of conversion in the sales funnel, and that’s because video content has more face-to-face dynamics with the audience in terms of brand-user interaction, increasing intimacy, and building a relationship of trust and loyalty.
