4 Reasons To Add an Explainer Video To Your Homepage


Explainer videos deliver a message quickly and efficiently. 

If someone visiting your site can watch a 60-90 second explainer video and gain a good understanding of what your business does, that you understand their problem, and how you can be the solution — you have a much higher chance of not only keeping them on your site for longer, but ultimately converting them into a paying customer. This format will grab someone and be able to deliver your message quicker than they could read it and will be far more appealing than text alone. 

They give people the content they are already looking for. 

We already know that people are consuming more video content than ever before. Youtube recently reported that 6 billion hours of video content are viewed on the platform each month. Video isn’t just a trend – it’s here to stay. So, why not put this front and center as the first thing someone sees when they visit your site. Draw them in and engage them immediately with a medium they already buy into. 

There are many SEO opportunities. 

Explainer videos aren’t just a great medium for communicating your message, but can actually bring customers to you. With Google now displaying videos in search results, this makes taking advantage of keywords in your title, attributes and beyond very important.
