Video is not only on Youtube
Because YouTube belongs to Google, it’s a logical move to have a dedicated channel and use it as part an overarching digital strategy for any brand.
It is important to consider other options, such as Vimeo, Daily Motion and even short-video mobile applications or Instagram (clips up to 15 seconds).
