The State of Video Marketing Survey

Every year, Wyzowl conduct a survey that asks hundreds of marketing professionals and online consumers questions to understand the current state of video marketing.

We’re all about the benefits of using video as a communication tool. Still, we don’t like to keep blabbering on about it – instead, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to have some fun highlighting some pretty impressive statistics.

  • 87% of businesses use video as a marketing tool.
