When it comes to content marketing, video is an up-and-comer, and it’s making a stir. According to the State of Inbound 2017 Report, video content is cited to be the top disruptor in the marketing world. More than ever, consumers want to learn and connect with brands through video content, and brands are listening.
The results of video marketing are undeniable—52% of marketing professionals worldwide list video as the type of content with the best ROI. For many businesses, the easiest part about making a video is deciding where to post it. As the most popular video hosting website by far, choosing to upload your video to YouTube is an obvious choice.
However, even with all of the awesome benefits of video marketing, only 9% of small businesses are on YouTube. Why? It’s the second largest search engine behind Google and is used by 1.3 billion people worldwide. The number one reason business owners give for not having a YouTube content strategy is that they simply don’t have enough understanding of how to produce video content.
