Video: the king of content marketing?

As businesses begin to appreciate the value that quality visual content can bring in capturing the attention of prospects, which in turn drive clicks and sales, video becomes an ever more compelling part of a brand’s content strategy; Cisco predicts that by 2017 video will account for 69% of all consumer internet traffic.

However, it’s not enough to simply upload your video to various digital platforms, and hope and wish that it will be seen by the right audience – no matter how captivating the story might be.
