We all know that video is king these days and that it’s imperative for brands to have a strong video presence. In fact, according to this report, in 2020, 86% of businesses used video as a marketing tool. Of those, 93% said it’s an important part of their overall marketing strategy. Social media has made it possible for video to be attainable and accessible to all. Consumers turn to video for everything from learning more about a brand before making a purchase to learning how to use a newly purchased product or service. Then why video in print?

Direct mail continues to pull in higher open rates and response rates than digital. Furthermore, direct mail is highly targeted so it’s easier to get the right message into the right hands at the right time. Direct mail delivers a long-lasting experience that people hold onto. This is where video in print comes in. 

When you take a tried and true traditional medium like direct mail and incorporate an exciting and dynamic medium like video, your opportunity to make an impact is enhanced. Video in print offers a one-on-one experience like no other which is why some of the nation’s largest brands have used it to make announcements, educate consumers on their products and services and make introductions. At a time when physical interactions are limited due to the pandemic, many brands have turned to video in print to deliver a more personal and long-lasting experience to their audience.

Take a look at how some industry leaders are using video in print.
