It’s no secret that the Video was recently crowned as the new king. It has become an unavoidable part of our daily dose of entertainment and is an effective way to communicate information, unlike pictures or audio.

Video marketing is the hottest and most promising thing now, and 83% of marketers saw a significant increase in leads after embracing it. Also, 51% of marketers worldwide named video as the type of content with the highest ROI.

Yet, many engineering business owners are still skeptical about its effectiveness and are reluctant to give it a try.

If you’re one among them or have to persuade higher officials to try out its potential, here are seven compelling reasons why every engineering business in the 21st century needs video marketing to prosper.

1. Video Reduces the Bounce Rate of Websites

The bounce rate is a crucial factor that affects your SEO as it defines the user experience, relevance, and usability of your website. If your bounce rate is higher, search engines will deem your website irrelevant, thereby reducing your search result rankings.

An average user spends 88% more time on a website with video content than without one. More time on a website translates into a lower bounce rate, which profoundly impacts your rankings.

2. It Can Boost Your Website’s SEO

A webpage with video content is 53 times more likely to show up first on Google search results. There are numerous reasons for this. Firstly, if someone finds your video to be informative, engaging, or humorous, they are likely to share them.

Secondly, users tend to pay more attention to website links in search results having video content, which will most likely result in better click-through rates (CTRs) and hence higher rankings.

But there’s a catch. Your videos must be worthy enough to be appreciated and shared.

Low-quality content produced for the sake of publishing may not gather much love.

You need to excite the user, add more value to their lives, and make your content so compelling that they must have a hard time not sharing it. It’s a cost-free advertising method, and to make the best out of it, make sure you include social share buttons with all your videos.
