Up to the test with Hotjar

In the summer of 2023, Stena Recycling activated Life Inside across its website, aiming to create more authentic connections with its audiences through interactive video testimonials. Visitors could now engage with real-life Stena Recycling team members, gaining insights into life inside the organization, all directly on the website.
As a data-driven organization, curious to measure the impact of their interactive videos, Stena Recycling's marketing team decided to conduct a comprehensive test of Life Inside using Hotjar, the premier product insights tool. By analyzing heatmaps, session recordings, and more, the goal was to understand how website visitors interacted with their site. The results were compelling. On the sites with interactive Life Inside videos in action, not only was it clear how website visitors actively engaged with the videos and the video widget, but there was also a noticeable uptick in time spent on the website compared to other sites, enhancing SEO. This authentic and direct interaction facilitated by Stena Recycling's videos clearly became a catalyst for keeping visitors intrigued and engaged. The results observed ignited a spark within the marketing team, prompting an exploration of more opportunities to expand the distribution of videos across larger parts of Stena Recycling's website and various online surfaces.
