People are watching more videos online than ever before – in fact, the amount of online videos watched has almost doubled since 2018. People watch around 19 hours of video a week.

And conversion isn't the only added bonus - it's just how and where viewers like to take content in. Most users say they would much rather hear about a business via video - a whopping 72% of customers prefer this format for learning about a product or service. On top of that, 84% of customers say they’ve been convinced to buy something by watching a brand’s video. So what does this mean for your inbound strategy?
