85% of people said that they would like to see more video from brands in 2021. With the average person scrolling through 300 ft of social media content a day, brands are reimagining their video content marketing to be interactive and shoppable to standout.
Shoppable videos are a type of interaction video that allow consumers to find out information about products and make a purchase without leaving the window. Clickable hotspot technology allows brands to upload links to product pages, ecommerce sites, e-mail signups and more.
By using interaction video in video content marketing, brands can increase engagement by 3-4 x. This prevents viewer drop-off and shortens the path to purchase. Implementing clickable calls-to-action that let viewers add products to cart turns viewers into customers in one click.
Here's how fast fashion brands are taking advantage of this effective new technology to drive sales.
