What video trends for 2020 ?

The videos that are most appealing are the ones that will be useful to your consumers and save them time. Who wouldn’t prefer to watch a video presenting a product or service with its features and functionality rather than discovering it for yourself or reading the instructions ?

Story telling is a style of video that consumers particularly like. This type of video makes people particularly interested and captivated because it seems much more real and also allows the consumer to identify himself. In addition, their personal character and the fact that they are telling a story makes for a unique viewing experience. You can see what the person felt, what they thought, what their emotions were. Seeing a person tell their own story can be much more touching than simply reading their testimony. It is therefore a good tool for your e-reputation and your brand image.

 

Finally, what is most touching and most memorable is when video can create emotion. Whether it is joy, fear or despair, the emotion created will leave a lasting impression.

What are the digital media trends of 2020 ?

The acceleration of TikTok

TikTok is the viral application of the moment. It’s growing in popularity while Instagram’s popularity is declining. It is currently easier to create buzz on TikTok than on other social networks.

This application translates into short videos with a background sound, allowing you to shoot original videos, each more creative than the other. Its content is considered rather authentic and captivating, hence its slogan: “Real people. Real videos“. It is the new fashion and the new means of communication of the new generation, which is why 41.7% of the people who use it are between 16 and 24 years old. If you target teenagers, this application could be a good communication strategy.

Conversely, on Instagram, consumers have become more skeptical of influencers. Many realize that their product investments may be misleading.

Commitment to this application is declining, especially since it has announced that it wants to hide likes. Only the person who has published will be able to know about her likes if she wants to.

Facebook is also thinking of removing the “likes” but TikTok keeps these functions of “liker” and comment.
