We recently featured information on how consumers seek out and value product-based videos. When it comes to apparel shoppers, product videos also encourage consumers to make purchases. A new study looks into the types of video apparel shoppers watch. As we approach Fall and weather begins to cool off (although here in Central Florida, it seems like that cool will never come), video can help your business maximize your ROI with apparel customers.
• Over one in three consumers watched customer testimonial and review videos
• Nearly 30% watched videos received via email
• Over a quarter watched user-generated videos
• 25% watched videos that appeared elsewhere online or on a TV network web site
• Over 20% watched videos from a professional reviewer
• 16% watched a video that appeared in on-demand content
What Does This Mean To You?
Video ads boost awareness, recall and among apparel consumers, they increase shopping behavior. Knowing the ways consumers get video and the types they tend to watch can help you fine-tune your message
Email – Utilize your current email programs to deliver video. With users finding this type of content a value – they are more likely to look forward to and open your email communication. Make sure that your email falls within regulation guidelines
Social Media – Consumers watch user-generated content. User generated content videos are a major purchase influencer of millennials (adults age 18-34). Include user-generated video into your social presences to increase engagement.
Networks – Digital ad networks not only give you great targeting capabilities, they allow you to extend your message across national sites but ensure only locals see the ads. For more information on how to effectively use video to
