While online shopping has been around for a while now, it’s starting to become the preferred way to shop in America. The trend is based on the actions of the two largest age demographics: Sixty-seven percent of Millennials would rather browse and buy online, and 56 percent of Generation Xers agree.
The sea change toward online shopping isn’t the only notable internet trend of 2017. Video is everywhere you look online, and it’s being consumed at an incredibly high rate. In fact, Cisco predicts that video will make up about 80 percent of all internet traffic by 2019.
Businesses the world over are realizing (and capitalizing on) their customers’ preferences for video and its astounding marketing power. The e-commerce space, in particular, has much to gain by jumping on the video marketing bandwagon.

Videos are getting shorter and shorter, and that shouldn’t come as a surprise. If you’re like me, 10-second Snapchat videos of a friend’s pet, significant other, or dinner plate sometimes feel a tad long. If you look at television ads, most of them are in the 15-second range. While only half the length of a 30-second ad that costs twice as much to produce, those shorter spots are 75 percent as effective as longer commercials.
Despite the additional cost, those extra seconds can often be remarkably useful, allowing you to tell a more captivating story that goes into greater depth. Plus, 30-second videos are generally still short enough to keep the attention of most viewers — as long as they’re compelling.
