Nearly 65% of people are visual learners, making visually stimulating content crucial for service professionals to have on their website. Video makes it possible for you to connect with your clients and prospects in an engaging way. In just a minute or two, you can educate and inform clients on industry topics and concepts, encouraging them to rely on you for informed advice and guidance.

Video is one of the most effective ways to communicate with your clients in a clear and personal fashion. Along with being visual learners, people more than ever have shorter attention spans so it is important to create compelling content that tells your story in a unique way. With video, you have an opportunity to demystify complex financial or insurance topics.
