More people are viewing videos online than ever before.

Any smart business marketer will already know this. But what you may not know are the recent eye-opening statistics behind this fast-growing trend. Your customers are consuming hours of content via video. You need to give them what they want. Start producing more video content about your business!

According to a report by Cisco, in 2019:

  • Video will account for 80 percent of global internet traffic
  • Nearly a million minutes of video will be shared every second
  • It would take an individual 5 million years to watch all the video that will be shared each month

To secure future business growth, it will soon be mandatory for any size business to include videos as a part of their marketing mix.

Get started by creating professionally produced brand-focused videos

Create video content about your company, products, people, and/or services. Need some ideas? Online videos come in the following forms: explainers, presentations, video blogs (vlogs), webinars, ads, interviews, live streams, and product videos. Post the videos to various online outlets and watch our audience grow.
