Making A Human Connection (With Video)
What do Facebook ads, cereal boxes and public speakers have in common?
According to this Wistia article on the familiarity principle, they use eye contact to connect with their audiences.
Eye contact builds trust, and forges a more personal, human connection that really resonates with people. How do business harness this powerful tool? Why, with video of course!
Using video to gain more face-to-face exposure is a great way to familiarize your company with current, or future customers.
