More Time Spent On Your Your Website
Video marketing allows you to increase the time spent by visitors on your site. On average, videos can be 2-5 minutes long, which is a longer duration of time versus someone just skimming your website, half-reading a bunch of boring copy, then leaving (which is what happens to most websites).
More Google Appearances
