Buy, sell, inform using videos

People want more video content (HubSpot), especially from brands (HubSpot). Consumer preferences heavily affect marketing trends, and direct marketing efforts. So as HubSpot puts it, ready or not, video is here. But the fact is that video has been here for quite some time and has seen continuous growth over the past few years. Marketers have powered up to cash in on this megatrend. If you are not one of those, it’s time to join the club.

But while on one hand, increasing number of marketers intend to use video in their efforts, on the other, a significant number of them find video to be the most difficult type of content to create.
