As we move further into 2020 and develop our marketing strategies, the question is not whether we should invest in video, but rather how much of our budget should be allocated to video production and distribution in order to increase ROI.

Video is continuing to dominate the online landscape, not only among marketers, but also by consumers and should be a go-to promotional asset. Online video campaigns help increase brand awareness, engage with target audiences, build brand loyalty instill trust and showcase a compelling story to make a positive impact for your organization.
