According to research by Mayer & Anderson, video presentations stimulate both the auditory and visual senses in the brain which increases the information retention rate by 74%. A video presentation or a video pitch is useful for employees and companies in all stages of the business cycle, but the most beneficial are startups. When you first start a company, not everyone is familiar with what your company does, it’s message or service. With a video pitch, you can create a voice for your company and showcase your story, which will help viewers to instantly connect with the company. In addition to effectively communicating your messages, a video presentation is memorable and sharable. Employees can more easily retain the information from the video and can share it with prospects as well. Videos also give you the option to present using animated characters and to introduce yourself or your product using ‘story telling’ rather than ‘fact telling’. Most importantly, you can create short animated video clips from your presentations and embed them into your website, driving more traffic to your domain.
