Gone are the days when customers had to wonder where can they get products similar to the ones they saw in photos. Products can directly be linked to the social media posts and YouTube videos which makes it easier for customers to shop. The ‘shoppable link is catching on and is becoming an essential addition to campaigns.
These are some of the upcoming video marketing trends that look promising in 2020.

Video related searches will soon be handled by AI in order to identify snippets. This will lead to proper video optimisation and will improve the ranking of these videos. Users will be able to depend on the voice search option for videos they’ve been looking up.
When Instagram introduced its new IGTV feature, influencers looked at it as another opportunity to engage with their followers in a better way and it worked in the same way. Many brands benefitted from this feature as earlier Instagram allowed only 30-60 seconds videos. This type of video marketing is not only becoming popular but also gives advertisers to be more creative with the content.
Most of the people do not have time to reach for their headphones and play the video or may not be in a set up where they can play videos on full volume. Silent video solves this problem for advertisers who want to reach more customers by improving the interaction.
Interactive 360- degree video technology
This trend has already taken over the ad campaigns and is becoming increasingly popular. It involves use of AR and VR, which holds the attention of potential buyers/ customers. Advertising of properties and locations can make the best use of 360-degree interactive videos.
User Generated Content
Nothing works better for a product than having a strong base of loyal customers. This helps the brands keep their sales constant, and also encourage others to try what they found useful. User Generated Content is essentially based on this principle hence brands encourage customers and users to share video reviews of their products. They also take the help of influencers as they have a huge following.
Increased options of dimensions
