We’ve talked over and over here on our blog how a successful online strategy depends on a quality of content you produce, that has the ability to eventually attract large amounts of traffic. It goes without saying that today, video content is the most popular content form, and the most engaging one. Based on the latest stats video content attracts 600% more viewers than the combination of direct mail and print.
There is no doubt that the future of B2B marketing/advertising is already here and video plays the most important role in B2B sales and marketing plans in all business spheres today. Simple reason really, ENGAGEMENT and there is no better way to ENGAGE your visitors/viewers/customers than by using video.

With so many marketing and advertising channels to choose from today it’s hard to stay on top of things, keep up with the trends and manage multiple channels for your business. Then again not all businesses should follow all the trends. So, how do you tell which marketing road should you take/create for your business?
