Audiences are consuming more and more short-form videos. They are easier to make and distribute. What is more, it is easier for your audience to remember a short-form video.
The short-form videos (90 seconds or less) are great to use at the awareness stage of your customer’s journey. These short and emotional ads can easily attract the attention of many people, on any network online.
In the crowded content pool, the best way to leave a lasting impression is to create short bits of content that are easily consumed. Additionally, when you know you only have so much time to get someone’s attention, you will push for more creative content that is clear, concise and contains only one message.
Slideshow videos are also easy to create, and they are becoming more and more popular. There is a number of online tools you can use to make these videos in a few minutes. The benefits of slideshow videos are huge – within 2 minutes you are able to tell a larger story about your brand or product. Furthermore, these videos are interesting to watch, because the scenery keeps changing, making the audience more hooked to the content. These 2-minute videos are highly effective. Especially if you showcase the main benefits of your product. So, try to make these a part of your video marketing campaigns.
The popularity of 360 degree videos has largely increased in the past year, and even social media networks are adapting to it. With them, you can create a virtual tour of your offices, of the events you are attending, as well as increase your online engagement.

Since the technology is still developing, not many businesses are using the 360-degree videos.
