Does Video Content Increase Online Engagement?

Figuring out what type of content is crucial for social media marketing success. We conducted a study to see how much video content weighs on overall engagement with one of our e-commerce partners. The results are clear…

Video content is crucial for online success. Your target audience is online — via mobile and desktop — almost 50% of their day, scrolling down their feeds, emails, and forums. Publishing videos gets their attention and forces them to engage.

Our insight saw a .30 correlation between change in video views and total daily post engagements. Meaning, when your page sees an increase in views, it will see a substantial increase in engagements.

Did video cause an increase in Facebook-generated revenue?

On days where video views was high and the short-term trend was high (# of daily views today > yesterday), Facebook revenue saw an increase! In total, a .20 correlation is moderate, but shows some positive relationship.
