Did you know that the time people spend watching YouTube on their TV has more than doubled year over year? That’s because more homes have smart TV’s then ever before and that is only going to keep increasing in number.
YouTube has over a billion users, almost 1/3 of all people on the Internet. Having video that you can use on your social sites, company website and developing a YouTube channel can bring you some serious ROI. Sometimes the best video is when you record something on the fly, from the heart, direct, short and sweet. Actually, nearly 2/3 of consumers prefer video under 60 seconds according to Hubspot.com. Now once you record, share it and share it on the web! It is interesting to know that 45% of people watch more than an hour of Facebook or YouTube videos a week.
