That’s how powerful it really is. 

And if you are looking forward to promoting your business or products as well as services, then we’d strongly advise you to tap into the power of interactive video marketing.

3 Incredible Benefits of Interactive Video Marketing in 2022 & Beyond

Following are the five benefits of interactive video marketing you should know about in 2022:

  • Helps Engage Your Audience
  • Makes it Easier for Your Audience to Take the Desired Action
  • Helps Capture Valuable Data

Helps Engage Your Audience

Over 70% of interactive video users reported that interactive video marketing helps them engage their users well or very well. And while the concept of interactive video has been around for years, it wasn’t until Netflix, a popular streaming platform, rolled out an interactive film called “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.”

And since then, Netflix has rolled out numerous interactive shows like Carmen Sandiego, Captain Underpants, and many more.

The most famous format for watching a video – play, pause, rewind, and fast forward. But now, with interactive videos, you can engage your users via polls, making them take the desired action, adding tweets or quotes, and more.

What if you want to collect inputs from your viewers for your latest survey? The traditional way of doing it is by asking them to head over to the survey form link that they may find in the Description section.

But what if you were to add a poll just below the video? That’d save your viewers the trouble of heading over to the survey form. And the best part is – you’ll be able to capture more submissions.

Similarly, you can add memes, tweets, your brand logo, or literally anything to engage your audience.

Makes it Easier for Your Audience to Take the Desired Action

Want your video viewers to call you? 

Or sign up on your platform? 

Or reach out to you via email, WhatsApp, Telegram or Messenger? 

Maybe you want them to follow/subscribe on Instagram or YouTube?

Whatever action you want them to take, you can make it easier for them by incorporating the CTA just below the video like this:

There’s a huge difference when you motivate your audience to take the desired action at the end of the video and when you put your CTA right in front of them all the time. 

When you ask them to take the desired action at the end of the video, they may or may not sign up on your website. 

They may or may not subscribe to your YouTube channel.

They may or may not book a meeting with you.

That’s just too much work.

By putting the CTA in front of them while they’re watching the video, you’ll be making it easier for them to take the desired action. And if you make it easier for your audience, they’re more likely to go ahead and take the action.

Helps Capture Valuable Data

We live in a data-driven world. And if you are looking forward to capturing your audience’s opinions, there’s no better way to do it than by adding a poll to your videos. 

Let’s say you run an eCommerce store and would like to know whether your audience liked the features of one of your newest products. In that case, you can create a poll with the question:

“Did you like our {Product Name}?”

And you can set the options as:

  1. Yes
  2. No
  3. Neutral

Now, depending on the results from this poll, you can make data-driven decisions, allowing you to position yourself as a customer-centric company.

Another use case – you can use these polls in corporate training videos as well. 

If you’re creating a video related to “Corporate Culture,” then you can create one or multiple polls related to your company’s corporate culture.

The possibilities are endless.
