Good (digital) marketing is about reaching your Ideal Customer on the right moment with the perfect content. Since a few years, the cost of reaching those Ideal Customers has gone up significantly due to the ned to be present on more platforms, pay higher PPCs for your ads and more competition when working on Organic traffic. 

According to Google, you need on average about 11 online touches before a prospect becomes a client.

And that’s where interactivity comes in: by adding interactivity to that perfect content, you allow your user to seamlessly act on that inspiration resulting in longer session times, more recurrent visits, better performing lead generation and a higher average order value.

Video is the best format to inspire your prospects, but also the most expensive one.
