Most Millennials Purchase Products After Viewing a Video, Study Shows

Nov 15 2018

Millennials respond to video more than any other form of content and it usually leads them to purchasing products, according to a new study. Boston-based software company Brightcove surveyed over 4,000 consumers of all ages. 56% of the millennials questioned said they are more likely to engage with video content compared to other formats. That is up significantly compared to the rest of the people questioned, with only 45% choosing video as their top form of content.

Users ages 18-34 surveyed also said it’s important for products to be shared through the video. Over half of the millennials surveyed said they engaged with a company after viewing their video on social media. The most startling number to come from the study was how many young consumers are purchasing products after viewing a video. 85% of millennials said they do compared to 76% for rest of consumers.
