In today’s highly-visual world, companies understand the critical role images and videos play in communicating brand values, selling products and connecting with consumers. Yet too often these business critical media assets aren’t optimized to their full potential. Slow-to-load or mis-cropped images can be directly tied to lost opportunities, while beautiful, engaging media can be attributed to upticks in social shares and improved bottom lines. With more choice, more channels and dwindling attention spans, it takes more understanding than ever to attract and engage today’s digital-savvy consumer.

Further key insights from the report include:

“Brands understand that strong visual experiences engage users, create loyalty and drive revenue,” said Colin Bendell, Senior Director of Strategy and Analytics, Cloudinary. “Where companies continue to struggle is in delivering visual experiences quickly and consistently across all channels, locations, devices -- and at scale. Our goal with the first annual State of Visual Media report is to share what we’re seeing across our massive data set in hopes that others can learn from what our customers are doing -- and not yet doing -- to improve processes, tell better visual stories and convert engagement to long-term loyalty.”
