Including video on website landing pages tends not to boost conversions in general, and sometimes slightly harms performance, according to recent research from Unbounce.

The report was based on an analysis of 35,000 Unbounce customer form and click landing pages, some of which had no video, some of which had embedded video, and some of which had background video.

Form landing pages with background video had a marginally higher median conversion rate compared with pages with no video.
