Want to be a better storyteller?
By Danielle Diamond @dhopediamond
Have you watched a video in the past 24 hours?
I have 🙋!
(I’m watching one right now!)
We live in a world dominated by video. But don’t take my word for it. Here are some of our favorite video stats:
- By 2020, online videos will make up more than 80% of all consumer internet traffic (85% in the US). (Cisco)
- YouTube is the second most trafficked site, after Google. (Alexa)
- Including video on landing pages can increase conversion rates by 80%. (Unbounce)
- In 2017 Netflix users alone collectively watched 1 Billion hours of content per week.
Marketers, filmmakers, entrepreneurs, politicians, engineers — everyone watches videos, and people in every field are creating content to connect with their unique audiences.
Whether your focus is art films, marketing videos, or action movies, great videos all have one thing in common: They connect with people and make them feel something.
But how do you connect with people? How do you use visual storytelling and performance to make people feel something genuine? People come to us with questions like these every day.
That’s why we decided to start the Rebel Motion blog.
We’re going to share our secrets to telling stories that people can connect with. Whether you’re a serious filmmaker, marketer, or you just want to try playing with a camera, we have tons of experiential knowledge that we know will help you create better content. And here's an example of our expertise with a blog post I wrote for User Interviews - check it out here!
