There are numerous benefits of using video as a small or medium-sized business (SMB), from expanding understanding of your product or service, boosting email click-throughs, building stronger brand affiliation, to increasing conversions. Plus, it’s no secret that consumers prefer watching videos over reading lengthy posts. These videos may be on a businesses’s YouTube channel, social media page, or embedded on their website. We’ve rounded up three small businesses using Storyhunter to create fantastic marketing videos. We hope it inspires you to take advantage of this powerful visual medium to tell your brand story.
