In our internet-centric and e-commerce world, digital video content is King. It is the present - and future - of all business and product marketing. When you consider that by 2020, digital video will constitute over fifty percent of all mobile traffic - and up to eighty percent of all web traffic, businesses and entrepreneurs must now embrace video as their primary and most effective marketing tool.

Ninety percent of all major product marketing now uses video as the central component to their campaigns and learning how to create, manage and distribute digital video content, is becoming the all-important strategy for business in the 21st Century. The goal is engagement with your customers. Digital video advertising has been shown to be six hundred percent more effective in marketing a product or idea than print and direct mail combined.
