Two pioneers in eCommerce video, Invodo and Creatable, today announced a first-of-its-kind partnership that will enable retailers and brands to drive sales through video at unparalleled scale.
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 19, 2017 -- The web today is entirely video-centric with consumers spending more than five hours per day engaged with video. The top two most trafficked websites are YouTube, which is 100 percent video, and Facebook, projected to hit 80 percent video in 2018. As a result, shoppers have come to expect video content at every step of the buying process -- presenting a strategic imperative and opportunity for retailers and brands to create real value from a scalable video program.
Invodo and Creatable have come together to form a unique partnership that brings a complete, end-to-end solution to each and every retailer and brand. With Invodo's deep expertise and capabilities in production, and Creatable's leading video commerce platform, retailers can now create and fuel a holistic video strategy that can truly scale.
