I have been studying different media forms and what is gaining traction. With the digital media age we are in people want information lightening fast, so videos are a great way to help interact with your viewers, as well as, to convey your message quickly. 55% of Visitors Spend Fewer Than 15 Seconds on Your Website. Videos give the user information faster than any other traditional Medium.
That means your website has a lot of work to do in a short amount of time!
As I began my video voyage, I started to study and learn the VLOG world is growing rapidly. Midway through 2015, mobile video plays exceeded 44% — up 74% from 2014 and up a whopping 844% since 2012.
Statistics for 2017, show 74% of all Internet traffic will be via VIDEO.
Okay Brandi, so I understand I need to include videos in my blog post and marketing efforts, but where do I start?
Obviously, YouTube is a great place to begin. I’ve pulled together some exciting and informative YouTube videos to help you get started on your video journey. These are all Videos I have watched and started to help me improve on my VLOG skills.
