What is the most used search engine on the internet?
Google, duh. Easy one, right? What is the second most used search engine? Bing? Yahoo? Negatory, it’s Youtube, that’s right. It’s not even a search engine! So what gives? Video, that’s what gives. The entire internet world is bonkers over video.
Here are five stats that will make you see why it’s a very bad idea to put off video marketing for one second longer.
