In early 2020, Kalen Norton of KatoTrainMePlease incorporated Animoto videos into his marketing strategy to build brand awareness and gain a following on YouTube and Instagram. Shortly after, Kalen saw a 400% increase in his YouTube following. On Instagram, a single video ad amassed over 300,000 views, and was saved nearly 6,000 times. “Video has become an indispensable part of my everyday marketing,” said Norton. “It’s not a nice-to-have anymore. It’s the reason my customers remember me, and how new clients find me.”
