A picture is worth a thousand words. Whoever wrote that, would be blown away by how many words a video is worth. Combined with increased mobile device use, videos value to marketer’s continues to skyrocket. There has been a 2084% increase in mobile video plays in the last 5 years, and most of that comes from Millenials. A fascinating article from ReelSEO.com tells us more:
Ooyala calls the Millennial generation the “Cord-nevers….the mobile-first generation”, and states that they are a “distinctly global generation, sharing more similarities than generations before them, and they’re driving us to a digital homogeneity that is distinctly mobile.”
For example, Millennials are significantly changing engagement patterns by device and long-form video:
- For the second quarter in a row, 69% of all videos watched on smartphones were under 10 minutes long. On the flip side, that means that nearly one-third of smartphone videos watched were longer than 10 minutes — Millennials are at it again.
- Larger screens continue to get the lion’s share of video views for content over 10 minutes long, with that format making up 74% of all video watched on connected TVs (CTV) in the fourth quarter.
- Tablet use for content 10–30 minutes in length grew for the third consecutive quarter to 21%, the most of any device for content of that length, indicating that the devices remain a favorite of users watching episodic television.
