Research shows movement matters when advertising, marketing and posting to social media. Just like on your Facebook or Twitter feed, the video posts, the moving pictures, are the posts which often catch your eye. Makes sense right. They are moving while others are not. Moving posts of any kind create better superior results

“Video posts have 135% greater organic reach than photo posts.”  Facebook
“Enjoyment of video ads increase purchase intent by 97% and brand association by 139%.” Unruly
“Shoppers who viewed video were 174% more likely to purchase than viewers who did not.” Retail Touchpoints

Most of your tourism advertising you have currently posted on the internet includes one static photo and a text description. It is hard to create excitement with one photo when the travel industry is all about the visual? Our research also indicates that some businesses do not update their ad, even once, on these other websites after they have signed up? On, because of the multiple photos, you are able to represent your business and/or event over a longer period of time while staying current.
