    Great article. We would like to implement video to reach more clients. Often it is not easy for them to see it, many do not have speaker at their desk, like myself. Personally I prefer to read material rather than watch a video related to work. However its not news that people love video and engage with it.

    I've taken some useful things there in your post Sarah Quinn ! Last time, I read an article on new trends in seo.. then I saw an useful line there from Jayson DeMers. He said ... "Video Content Will Overtake Written Content in ROI for B2C Industries and Brands. " Hope this post will be the mainstay for video marketing..
