YouTube is a Major Player of Online Video Distribution and Consumption

 

YouTube is the online video giant mustering over 4 billion daily views. The amount of video content that is stored on their servers is astronomical. There are over 2.5 days worth of video uploaded every minute. This number is growing daily as more and more people use PCs, tablets, and mobile devices to share their videos online.

 

How can your business leverage online video to drive traffic, generate leads, and close sales?

 

75% of C-Suite executives surveyed said that they watch work-related online video content on business-related websites at least weekly. Does your inbound marketing strategy include video as a pillar of content creation? Depending on who you sell to, these numbers can be very exciting to marketers.
