We all well and truly know by now just how effective video is. To be honest, I don’t know why I’m writing this blog (just kidding, SEO and keyword-rich content are essential, too). So, to show just how video has become an increasingly vital part of any digital marketing strategy, we wanted to share the top 10 video marketing statistics for businesses in 2019.
People are visual, and video is engaging, so it’s no wonder video is more popular than any other type of content in the digital sphere. It enables businesses, individuals, groups, and well, anyone, to share their story. Video content is no longer an optional part of a marketing plan; it’s a necessity, and for a good reason.
