Video marketing is quickly crossing into buzzword territory. From blogs to online news to social media platforms, video is everywhere. The use of video content for B2B marketers jumped from 8% to 58% in 2014 alone, while the number of videos brands publish on Facebook has continually increased by 3.6x year over year.
