Content marketers everywhere have been toting 2016-2017 as the year of video marketing.
Let’s do a little experiment:

It’s quite a bit, isn’t it? Is it more than you expected?
Facebook has reported a whopping 94% increase in video uploads from U.S. users alone since 2014.
The fact is, video has become a cornerstone of the social media scene – especially on Facebook. To ignore this trend is risky for any brand strategy.

The good news is, a well-executed video campaign has the potential for some staggering returns.
