Infographic: Why CMOs Embrace Social Video?
This infographic shows how hard social video is booming; it represents more than half of the internet traffic today. By 2015 social video is predicted to have 90% of the entire Internet traffic.
As the traditional media and channels are becoming obsolete and more people use smart-phones and tablets, connected everywhere, CMOs need to catch up with this trend and move from push to pull model with social video that is engaging, likeable and sharable.

With all the advantages of social video in terms of metrics, CMOs can leverage on the tangible results, calculate ROI and more importantly, with the right distribution, reach and engage the desired target audience around the whole world.
The question can be, how can you get all the metrics and find out what they mean? And now please forget about all the YouTube insights as social video is not YouTube only.
There are more than 500 video sites, global and local ones which should not be missed in detailed planning and taken into account when social media strategy is created.
How can marketers stay on top of all the numbers from several portals and measure the number of views, comments and social shares?
Yes, one way is to count these manually and set-up monitoring of the campaign and this is possible for small campaigns with one or two videos. But still, it can become a hassle and at the end the numbers might not be accurate. And CMOs don’t like inaccurate numbers and estimates.
With the help of video metrics tool ViralTracker we created the below infographic including real numbers from a case video – Smartwater with Jennifer Aniston that was tracked by ViralTracker for the last 12 months. Have a look at some very interesting results and insights on views, shares and most importantly – cost per view.
As classic banners and pay per click campaigns are becoming less and less effective; unless you spend hundreds of thousands per month like Booking.com (and even though it is not guaranteed that you get the best deal), social video will be continuously growing and so will be the number of Internet users worldwide. And more importantly – the spends and at the end the revenues.
Do you still have doubts about the social video? You should not. The more you wait the more time is given to your competitors, losing money and prospects.
And if your videos are already out there in the wild, are you sure you have all the data that are necessary and important for the marketing team?
