Video is an increasingly important medium to add to your online marketing arsenal.
With more than 1 billion unique visitors frequenting YouTube each month, and over 6 billion (yes billion…not million) hours of video watched online each month, video marketing is well worth the effort.
In fact, with statistics like that, the question should not be whether or not you will add video to your online marketing, but how quickly you can put a plan in place to leverage this opportunity in your business.
Below are five reasons to power up your online video marketing skills, including tips on how to stop procrastinating, and get on camera in 2014!
