Does Adding a Video Spokesperson increase Landing Page Conversion?




I've been curious as to whether adding a video spokesperson (or video in general) helps to increase landing page conversion. The best way to be certain is to obviously test it, but sometimes you need to do some research before you propose a test project like that so I did some digging.

Here are my findings:

  • Adding a video spokesperson on your landing page can increase your conversion rates 90% of the time.1

       ... More after the jump

  • The addition of embedded video and then a video spokesperson on Closet World's landing page increased conversion rates from 0.5% to 1.0% and 2.2% respectively.2
  • Tandberg, a video conferencing company was able to increase conversion on their lead gen page from .75 to 3% with the addition of a video spokesperson.  With "Video Conferencing" and "Tandberg" as a keyword, their conversion rate jumped to 5% and 7% respectively. 1,4
  • KoreOne, an IT Staffing company, was able to increase their conversion rate from .25% to 1.26% for employers seeking employees. For job seekers, their conversion rate increased to 2.96% 4
  • Video vs text landing page test for a Work from Home Opportunity site saw only a small increase in overall lead numbers, but a greater gain in lead quality. 3
  • According to research, over 90% of people favor having video spokespeople on their landing pages because of the added element of trust.1
