14 Video Marketing Stats you need to know in 2018

“Video marketing is a powerful means for promoting anything you want online, whether it’s a product, service, opt-in form, website, blog, etc. …Videos are now an expected component of any website.” — AnimosityPierre

Video has shot up to the top as one of (if not) the best forms of marketing. Allowing a near infinite number of possibilities in what can be achieved, it has garnered quite the reputation in recent years.

But the situation is different in India, are startups and businesses confident in their ability to market using the conventional practices? One of the reasons we started denture Capital was to make videos to fill this void. The void being, there were so many startups that were not utilizing video when it is arguably the most effective.

In the United States, Video has boomed exponentially in the last 2 years. Yet that “explosion” has not really happened in India. Why is that? There are thousands of startups here yet the use of video is very limited.

We have been trying to get more people on board with video for a while now, and the perception is changing gradually. We believe video is the future of marketing and we are eager to let more people know of it.


If you’re still not convinced, take a look at these 14 Stats on Video Marketing (2018) that will change your mind:
