Video marketing has taken hold as arguably the strongest form of visual marketing these days. It’s no wonder this is the case when you see Forbes referencing the fact that viewers retain a whopping 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to 10% when reading it in text. It also has been proven to affect purchase decisions, as simply adding a video animation to your website or landing page can increase your conversion rates on that page by up to 80% [Wordstream]
Whether it’s explainer videos, whiteboard animations, or animated infographics, there are many great examples of video marketing around the web. Now, we’re proud of the work that we do in this area, but it’s always fun (and inspirational) to go and check out what others have created as well. Here are 20 of the most inspiring infographic animations on the internet (that we’ve found so far!) Enjoy!
