In 2021, consumers have access to content online at an on-demand capacity more than ever before. This rapid increase of on-demand, shoppable content has only accelerated thanks to the global pandemic. Now that brands and customers have trialled immersive, shoppable formats of engaging content, they are not willing to let this way of life go.
Shoppable formats encourage instant purchases. The clickable, customisable hotspots make the video content marketing strategy completely engaging, informative and monetised. Brands add product links to an interactive overlay using product images, text, URL's, Product Feeds and Product API's. Information can also be added manually. These videos can be integrated into e-commerce landing pages and shared across social media. Viewers will then be able to click, swipe, zoom and drag through the video to find out product details such as colourways, pricing, sizing, composition and more. Call to actions encourage consumers to click through to brand e-commerce, sign up to a mailing list, book a test drive or even make a purchase within the video and add to their basket.
