Why Animation Is More Important Than Ever Before

Video marketing has been on the rise since 2013. It has been proven that a majority of consumers engage with videos more than they do the written word. With these statistics clear as day, people are aiming for producing better quality and highly-converting videos.

This leads us to the use of animation in creating videos that sell. Through video animation, you can tell stories, create brand awareness and connect with your target audience in incredible ways. Animation makes it possible to relate to your audience in ways that even live films can’t.

Still not convinced? Here are other reasons why animation is more important than ever before:

In the battle of live videos versus animated videos, the latter takes the lead because they leave a memorable and long-lasting impression. Now, would you remember a brand leader that was talking about the importance of loving animals, or an animated scene of animal and human companionship? 

Of course, the animated scene takes the lead. This is why animation is particularly important. It gives a clear understanding of your business and shows exactly what you stand for and what you can do for your customers.

For any business, converting leads into long term clients is all that matters. Needless to say, when users are intrigued by a video on a website, they are most likely to spend a significant amount of time on the website rather than bouncing off.  When you use animation to explain your products and services, then your website visitors are more likely to watch the entire video. 

As such, you can convey the message that you require knowing that it was well-received. This is why many business owners have resorted to animation as an irreplaceable marketing tactic. However, there is one catch to success- Make your video engaging, add a call to action at the end and your rate of conversion will be through the roof.
