For marketing managers and marketing directors looking to build better engagement and longer viewing time, interactive media is a great way to go. According to a recent Interactive video benchmark report by Demand Metric and Brightcove, interactive video leads to 20% more conversion efficiency.
Key findings from the report included:
- Driving better engagement and e-learning / customer training are the two top uses for interactive video. Other top uses include lead generation, competitive differentiation and triggering a purchase or sale.
- The average planned spending on interactive video over the next 12 months falls with a range of $30,000 to $39,999.
So what is interactive video?
The features of interactive video include the ability to:
- jump to different frames of a video through the use of hotspots, chapters or hyperlinks and call up graphical or live text at designated cuepoints for questions, forms and CTAs for downloadable documents or sales
- change the perspective of a video through virtual reality
- socially interact with live video
“We notice a different focus on video analytics from our customers.They treat video like the rest of the web.They,
- track click-through-rate (CTR) from a video to a landing page
- track submission rate of in-video polls and surveys
- track the true engagement of individual leads and prospects (including dwell times, skips and rewatches of specific sections)
- track direct answers to questions (at a user and audience level)
- track viewer navigation rate to specific sections of the video“
Since over two thirds of the responses to the survey indicated that interactive video will be more important as a content type of the future, it’s definitely time to check it out.
