Forbes has written extensively on how visual storytelling is a huge part of this year’s content marketing push.
Visual storytelling is anything from videos to gifs and it’s becoming an ever-popular way of engaging people on social media. However, videos are also starting to become popular features for homepages and product pages of websites.

It can be very quick to make a 30-second video to show off a new product, or an aspect of your dental business that will satisfy a level of engagement that can’t be reached through written content.
Don’t forget that it’s also worth remembering that videos on your YouTube channel can be a really good way of sneaking in calls to action at the end of each short ‘film’, i.e. For more information sign up to our newsletter. Simple!
