Know These 67 YouTube Video Promotion Stats for 2023 [New]

The year 2023 is quickly approaching, and as we say every year, video quality just keeps improving. As we move into 2023, it will be nearly hard to ignore video in the marketing industry. Traditional broadcast commercials, digital OOH placements, social ads, OTT, and countless more channels that are essential to the success of marketing simply exist everywhere.


In owned, earned, and paid channels alike, video increases the bar, and in 2023, it’s predicted to continue to rule the marketing world. In light of this, we’ll adopt a proverb that’s particularly applicable to the video industry: “The best moment to start was yesterday. Now is the second-best time.


In other words, if your company is currently delaying the use of video content for some unspecified future period, you are already missing out on many of its advantages. You might have even read the post from the previous year with the intention of prioritising video in 2022. Well, 2022 has passed, and those who bet big on video are now reaping the benefits.


If you’re still not persuaded, check out these 67 figures, including first-hand information from the Video Boosters Club team, that demonstrate the significance of YouTube video promotion for 2023 and beyond. Look them up!


Statistics for YouTube Video Promotion in 2023


There are a tonne of statistics on video content, as you can probably infer from the length of this list. Consequently, we’re going to categorise the statistics into the following groups to help make this important information a little bit easier to understand:


  • Video Boosters Club’s initial analysis
  • by marketing goal statistics (Attract, Engage, Nurture, Close, Delight)
  • by social channel statistics (TikTok, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn)
  • Industry statistics for YouTube video promotion
  • Consumer video viewing statistics


Let’s start now!


Original Video Boosters Club Research


Video Boosters Club started a YouTube video promotion survey in March 2022 to learn more about how our own audience engages with video.


We had previously observed a knowledge gap in the sector when it comes to production methods. There are a lot of publicly available YouTube video promotion statistics that concentrate on how viewers interact with videos and why marketing teams prioritise them, but there is relatively little data regarding how these teams handle the actual production process.


The data below was obtained from our survey conducted in March 2022, to which 1392 marketers from all throughout the country responded. We’ll do the same survey in January 2023, and then we’ll publish a thorough report that examines the condition of YouTube video promotion and contrasts the results from 2023 with those from 2022. Keep an eye out for that report in Q2 2023!


Here is what we discovered to be applicable moving into 2023 in the interim:


Key Figures


  1. Approximately one-third of the 82% of our respondents who generated video material in the last three years did so internally, while the other two-thirds sought assistance from other sources.
  2. Engagement, followed closely by traffic, conversion rate, watch duration, impressions, and click-through rate, was cited as the most crucial statistic by 63% of marketers.
  3. According to 92% of marketers, video will be crucial to marketing in the years to come.
  4. Over the next few years, 93% of our marketers expect to include video into their own marketing plans. 82% of marketers last year chose this option, demonstrating that video is still growing.
  5. Less than 4% of respondents said they don’t like watching brand video material at all, while 90% of respondents said they “Very much” or “Somewhat” love watching video content from businesses online.


Practices in Production


36% of respondents said they would spend little more than $2,500 on their initiatives, while 14% said they would spend $10,000 or more.


An explainer or brand video, both of which often tell the tale of how a company came to be, what it stands for, and why customers should care, was predicted to be produced by 53% of marketers this year.


According to 64% of respondents, they presently share one to four videos per month across several networks.


Distribution of Videos

The two qualities that viewers perceive as being most critical for an entertaining video are authenticity and clear messaging/storyline.


Data on YouTube video promotion by marketing objective


Following that, we looked at YouTube video promotion statistics by broad marketing objectives. As marketers are all too aware of, there are a plethora of conceptualization frameworks for common marketing goals, and each person’s marketing funnel may change slightly.


Throughout the customer lifecycle, Video Boosters Club uses the phrase “Attract, Engage, Nurture, Convert, Delight” to describe our objectives. The video statistics below were broken down using that framework, but you’ll notice overlap if your organisation uses a different methodology.


In summary, video is tremendously helpful for any marketing objectives your company has. (Quick note: Our producers adore nothing more than helping you find the perfect match if you’re unsure of how to use video to align with your 2023 marketing goals.
