In 2015, online video comprised 63 percent of the total Internet traffic and that number is expected to rise to 79 by the year 2020, as per Cisco. This just goes to show how popular online videos are – not just because they are effective at conveying content and information, but because they’re very easy to watch on your smartphone, too.
Given how 42 percent of all B2B searches are conducted on mobile gadgets, and almost half of these buyers are millennials, it’s only a matter of time before video and visual content become the go-to marketing medium for B2B businesses.
