8 Video Marketing Trends for 2022
If you want to take advantage of the moment and take advantage of video marketing, we are going to explain 10 trends about it this 2022.
Short videos 📽
TikTok has come to influence every way. It is a fact that it has become one of the most important social networks today.
Its triumph has caused that all platforms have been updating (and continue to reorganize) and have given more importance to short videos.
In addition to TikTok and Instagram Reels, which are the most used, there are YouTube Shorts or Facebook Reels. They are vertical video formats that, normally, have a duration of 60 seconds.
Short videos allow you to offer effective advertising, avoiding saturation and, in addition, transmitting the message effectively.
Users usually close the videos when they reach 20 seconds, approximately, so it is advisable to convey the message from the beginning and without detours.

Pop-up buttons in videos ⏯
Videos with pop-up buttons shorten the customer journey, offering them the opportunity to purchase the products they want directly from the video via the button.
This button takes the customer to a landing page where they are allowed to complete the purchase process.
It could be compared to the shoppable posts on social networks that have been trending for years.
These shoppable videos allow you to increase the click-through and conversion rate, as they create the path to purchase. It’s a way to make it easy for the customer.
Personalized videos 🗣
Personalizing content is not something new in marketing, but it is unusual in videos. With this new trend, marketers can generate personalized video messages and replace emails and phone calls.
Technically, making this type of video is very simple because you only have to change the parts such as the name of the recipient, their faces or decisions.
Customizing videos allows brands to offer specific solutions for each client.
Live videos 🎤
Live videos have been around for a long time, but as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown, their use skyrocketed.
This type of video allowed brands to keep in touch with their customers and, today, it is one of the favorite contents for brands, celebrities and users.
The success of this type of videos is very easy to explain: it allows interaction, users watch them for longer, they are more profitable and can be saved in the profile.
Rise of Stories ⌛️
The rise of Stories is on the rise. Since the emergence of the social network Snapchat, a new video marketing trend was born. It is a format that is characterized by its short duration and durability: it only lasts 24 hours.
First, it was Snapchat , then Instagram and Facebook and, for a certain period of time, it was also on Twitter .
Ephemeral videos create a sense of urgency, as the viewer must watch it before it disappears.
Ads without sound 🔇
Ads with sound are an annoying experience for users; that’s why soundless video ads are becoming more and more popular.
The vast majority of users watch videos without sound and, in many cases, videos with subtitles increase viewing time.
Videos produced with smartphones 📱
One of the highlights of video marketing is that you don’t need to have large teams and budgets. It is possible to create large productions with the smartphone.
Influencers have helped popularize this type of videos, with the content they share on TikTok, where they share collaborations, blogs of their day to day …
These are not the only ones that produce this type of videos: more and more brands are filming their videos with smartphones to convey authenticity and closeness to their customers.
In video marketing strategies, video blogs are booming and, increasingly, brands are betting on them.
This format is inspired by traditional blogs that, with a series of chronological posts, you can navigate between them. The difference is that, in this case, it is in video format.
Users tend to consume more video content than written content, so as usual, video blogs are a brilliant option to replace text.
Who hasn’t seen a video blog of their favorite influencer?
