What are the biggest trends in video for 2019?
- Vertical video— in 15 second and 60 second formats, designed for sound off in Facebook and Instagram stories.
- Video for DTC (direct-to-consumer) companies that sell via highly produced entertaining and funny stories– like the Harmon Brothers and Chamber Media produce.
- Video replacing email for real estate agents, mortgage brokers, and other sales professionals– short video replies are more powerful than text-based replies via tools like Bomb-Bomb.
- Video analytics starting to mature– going beyond cost-per-view and average watch time towards depth in sequence and increased propensity to purchase. Facebook has the most robust video analytics on paid and free traffic, while YouTube is concerned with privacy.
