If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video is worth a million words.

Today’s best DTC brands are using video to convert even more customers and complement the customer journey.

Thanks to advances in software, it’s easier than ever for customers and creators to make high-quality videos (and edit them too!). That gives brands who use video a big advantage when it comes to selling customers.

Video how-tos, product unboxing, and more are all expected from consumers today.
