Fact: While video production can sometimes be expensive, it can counteract this by generating a significant return on investment (ROI) if done right. According to a study by Wyzowl, 87% of businesses reported a positive ROI from video marketing, therefore the investment may just be worth it.

Therefore it is all about finding that healthy analytical balance.
