Tthey all tell us one thing: videos are becoming an indispensable part of marketing.

With Wideo, you can choose to use an existing video template, or create an animated video from scratch.

Professional marketers know how videos can catapult their otherwise old-fashioned digital marketing strategies to high effectiveness. In fact, by merely putting the word “video” in your email subject, email click-through rate can increase by 65%, and the unsubscribe rate can be decreased by 26%.
As consumers rely more on videos of product reviews and tutorials in making purchasing decisions, businesses will need to step up and provide them with interesting and engaging video content.
