4 “No-Brainer” Videos to Use in Your Digital Marketing Strategy

In 2021, the average person will spend 100 minutes every day watching online videos. Will your business grab a piece of the pie? Or will you sit back and watch as your competitors rise to the occasion? The stone-cold truth is, consumers want video. In this day and age, they yearn for it – and they’re just waiting for you to give them something worth watching. 

Here’s the good news – you can. And you will! We’re here to give you the cheat sheet or the krabby-patty formula for what consumers want to see from your business. Here are 4 “no-brainer” videos to use in your digital marketing strategy.


If video marketing were a baseball field, explainer videos would be first base. You have to get your consumers on base. And how are you going to do it? By telling them a little bit about your business and what exactly it is that you do. These kinds of videos are great for any industry, product, or service. And let me tell you, they are especially wonderful for businesses that don’t really offer a….simple explanation. If you think your industry is complicated, trust us, we are UP to the challenge. Check out some of the explainer videos we’ve produced for us and our clients!
