Leverage the Secrets of Netflix:

Netflix has 81 million subscribers, and they keep close tabs on all of us. Netflix recently published what they learned when they experimented with the best images to use to get people to watch new content:

1. They tested variations of the main image used to promote the latest series of ‘The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’. The winning image was the one with 2 faces expressing astonishment.

2. Using images of villainous characters worked better than those that highlighted the hero.

3. Netflix also found that images that contain more than three people lead to a significant drop in user engagement.

-Videos with CTA that included the word:
+ “Free” converted 12.22%
