Last year, the average adult in the UK spent nearly an hour per day watching digital video, per an eMarketer report. “By 2019,” the research suggested, “10.1% of daily media time, and almost 20.0% of daily time spent with digital activities, will be devoted to watching digital video.”
Those are the kinds of striking numbers that can make you pause and rewind for a double-take.
We’re not prepared to say written content is headed the way of the VHS tape, but it is beyond clear that video is an increasingly pivotal medium for reaching people online. And B2B marketers must heed the trends, because those people absolutely include corporate decision-makers.
According to Cisco, 76% of executives watch business videos at least once per week, including 40% daily. Nearly two out of three senior execs say they’ll opt for video over text if both are available on the same topic.
In other words, any go-forward B2B marketing strategy that doesn’t include a focus on video content is set to lose traction and stray off course. Luckily, our new roadmap will ensure your organization is on track and ready for what lies ahead.
