First of all, what is video marketing?

At Occam Digital Agency, we are convinced that you have heard of it on numerous occasions, but it never hurts to remember it. It is a technique increasingly used by brands to promote their products or services using the audiovisual format. The key to this content is the Internet, the place where you can viralise it and make thousands of users see it.

It is measurable, its impact is easily calculated with reports. And it is viral! You can share it on social networks, email marketing and much more. And as a result, you will quickly boost it, obtaining millions of visits. But, as the saying goes, "not everything that glitters is gold". There are many advantages of video marketing, but it requires a lot of work to achieve them, from the idea and planning, to audiovisual production, video distribution and its viralisation on different platforms.
