One thing that I think we can all agree on is that we marketers love our trends.
It almost seems like we’re being introduced to new ones that “disrupt” the industry on a daily basis. Some burn brightly for a short period of time, then seem to slowly fade away to join the ghosts of marketing past. Others, however, become timeless and an integral part of any successful marketing campaign.
I think it's safe to say that video marketing is that next timeless trend.
People are using video for more than just an attention-grabber on their pages these days. Rather, it’s being used at all stages of the sales funnel to engage and educate prospects, nurture current leads, and boost overall conversion rates.
