People engage with video content more than any written, audio, images, etc. YouTube has an average session of 9 minutes and 28 seconds. That is more than any other social media site.

It is easy to repurpose video content. For example, video content works well for both YouTube and Facebook advertising, so you can use these videos for Facebook advertisements at a later stage.

You don’t need a professional filmmaker to create high-quality videos. All you need is a good smartphone and some exceptional content. If you are a camera shy person, you can create videos with different slides and other forms of media. The type of video you create is not important as long you are creating videos.

The final verdict is that video content and production work can get you, clients, position your brand as an authority and also give value to your target audience.  Once, you have solid video in hand, you can repurpose it by creating written and audio content for other platforms.
