  1. I do agree with the fact that people can remember things easily through watching rather than reading. Therefore, I do agree that video marketing could be a good move if done properly by companies. Video could also be more attractive, and therefore creates more consumer interest, which I believe is the aim of all marketers. However, many companies are still not into doing this, I’m guessing this is because cost of doing so are still high compared to other means of marketing. What do you think?

    • Yes, i think that the cost is still too high also. Because in developing a suitable video marketing for the market, the company has to do a lot of research that requires a lot of resources both financial and manpower. Creating an attractive video marketing also requires the company to spend on filming and editing of the video. However, I think that video marketing is still better than conventional marketing as it attracts more customers to eventually buys the product. Maybe the cost is outweighed by the return on making the video ads. That’s just my thought though.
