  • SEO Benefits: The Video capabilities on a website can solidify what the website is about and add to the story. By hosting videos and embedding them on a website, your site’s search engine optimization can be positively impacted.
  • Social Proof: If you have any customer testimonials, product demonstrations, or other forms of social proof in video format, showcasing them on your website can help your audience trust you more, and trust generally means higher conversion rates.
