How B2B Businesses Can Benefit From Animation in Content Marketing

  • 68% of consumers prefer watching videos to learn about new services or products, as compared to ebooks, infographics, presentations, and articles.
  • Many B2B companies use a type of animation called animated explainer videos. These are brief videos (typically less than a minute long) explaining a service or product in a quick, creative way. With the help of these animated videos, demonstrating new services or explaining complicated business ideas becomes much easier.

Important Points To Keep In Mind While Using Animation

  • Keep it brief: Your audience might be impatient enough to go through long videos. Just make the animated video long enough to get your audience interested in your product/service. We recommend a length that’s less than 2 minutes.
  • Include a CTA: Ensure you include a CTA in your video. It should be such that it prompts the viewer to take action after watching the video.
  • Show what’s in it for your customers: The animated video should tell the customer what you and your product can do for your customers.
  • Be persuasive throughout: Corporate customers are demanding when it comes to attention to detail and the quality of the animation. Ensure you focus on every little detail to prompt your persona to take action.
