Another Hubspot study found that 38% of marketing videos had fewer than 10,000 views, while 16% had an average of 1,000 views. Stating that the first criterion that marketing professionals look at is interactions such as views, likes and comments, İbrahim Kuru said, “Indicators like these give clues about how many people the videos reach. Still, brands need to embark on this path knowing that it can take time for the consistent video strategy they create to respond to the consumer. Content that serves a purpose, based on certain rationales, presented to the right target audiences, in the right language and tone, can yield remarkable results when supported by qualified advertising campaigns. In addition to being watched, indicators such as the minute after which users left the video, how the number of subscribers and followers increased after the video was published should also be followed.

“Vertical video era has begun on social media”
Reminding that after TikTok’s rapid rise in many geographies, including Turkey, Instagram opened a separate area for vertical videos with Reels and YouTube with Shorts, IDRY Digital founder İbrahim Kuru concluded his evaluations with the following statements: It had been on the agenda for a while that it fell to a remarkable level. Some data today show that vertical videos are 13.8 times more visible on Facebook than horizontal ones, and get 90% more reach than static images. Vertical videos offer brands new ways to tell stories about their products and services, fueled by a strong foundation. Here, in order for brands to reach the right target audiences, they need to follow a consistent video content strategy across many channels, with strategies specific to user behavior.
