If your marketing team is anything like ours here at Vidyard, they’re constantly thinking about new ways to generate more qualified leads, more pipeline and more revenue for your business. Shares and Visitors and Likes won’t cut it. It’s time to get serious about finding the right buyers at the right time and hooking them into your story. And if your marketing team really (truly) cares about producing better outcomes, they’re even thinking about new ways to help your sales team be more efficient and effective (do I smell Sales and Marketing Alignment?!?).
While I don’t have all the answers for you, I do have some very practical ideas that you can implement to generate better results, cook up some more pipeline and maybe even close a few more deals. Warning: it will require some creative thinking and a commitment to getting serious about data-driven marketing, but I have faith that you can pull this off. So here it goes: my list of five great ways to use video content and viewer analytics to generate more leads and qualify more pipeline. Let’s Play!
In the first part of my blog series on video marketing, I threw out a lot of stats as to why videos should be incorporated into your marketing efforts. The proof is in the pudding. It works!

According to Cisco, by 2017, video will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic (source). Take a moment to let that process.
Two-thirds of all consumer internet traffic will be video content. Two-thirds. That means YouTube, Facebook videos, live streamers, etc. Instead of reading your emails or your content-rich website, your audience will be watching video reviews and commentary, live web series, cat videos, sports highlights, and more cat videos.
So, what are you doing in the world of video to promote your products and services? Your own cat videos don’t count.
