- Changing the player color can increase play by 20% – so make sure you can match your brand to your video player. For example, Wistia enables a marketer to customize how a video looks without requiring a developer.
- Consider adding interactivity to your video while it’s playing. Things like annotations to pop up over the video and CTAs at specific points in a video can drive better conversions.
- Analytics help you understand who is watching the video. When evaluating video vendors, consider their analytics capabilities. In Wistia’s case, you can not only see who watches a video once but also see who’s rewatching a video and what points in the video they are re-watching.

You can even drill down into a particular viewer’s video viewing history and see the order videos were watched and when they were watched.
