Linda Summers, Director Marketing & Operations for Mobile at Skype, discusses how exciting she finds working with tech startups, the need to take and share more risk across the tech sector and the importance of talent in delivering success, particularly in the creative communities.
This was one of our most popular webinars, and you can view a recording of the webinar here.
During the webinar, Shiri Friedman shared several statistics that demonstrate the growing importance of video in the enterprise marketing mix.
- Web pages with videos attract 2x to 3x more visitors than pages without videos, and they generate a 157% increase in organic traffic from search engines.
- Website visitors who view a video are 85% more likely to buy than those who do not.
- 76% of marketers plan to add videos to their websites (which makes video additions a higher priority than Facebook, Twitter, or blog integration).
- Overall online video consumption is growing at 30%, but video consumption on tablets is growing at 360%, and video consumption on smartphones is growing at 300%.
These statistics are impressive, and they echo other data regarding the importance of video content that I discussed in an earlier post.
For me, the most important takeaway from Shiri’s presentation was that video content can be used in a multitude of ways that will help enterprises achieve a broad range of marketing objectives. Video is great, of course, for building awareness, but as Shiri pointed out, video content is also a powerful tool for converting viewers into customers. The sensory richness of video content makes it both compelling and “shareable.” As Shiri said in her presentation, “Have you ever heard of a white paper that went viral?”
Shiri’s presentation includes many examples of companies that are using video content in innovative and effective ways. The featured company is Puma, but the presentation also includes examples from Red Bull, Oracle, Boeing, and many others.
If you’re interested in learning more about how to leverage video content in your marketing mix, this webinar will be well worth your time.

This discussion will take a look at the ways marketing is adapting across people, platforms, processes, screens, and channels because of this surge of available data.
