Why online video is SUPER important for you and your business?


Opening Paragraph about how much time people spend online and much much of that is video?

I love the internet, I consume it now like it’s part of my daily diet. The main reason is it’s home to some of the best ways to learn, share and gather information.  

On average now people are spending over upwards of 20 hours a week online, with the rise of people having mobiles and tablets, the web is more accessible now than it ever has been before.

I love video, some might say that I consume too much video via the internet, but with how easy it is, it’s hard not to be obese due to the endless amounts of video we are seeing on virtually every app or website. It’s fair to say that video is huge, one organisation are predicting that Internet video will account for 79% of global Internet traffic by 2020 – up from 63% in 2015. At the moment 55% of people watch videos online every day.
