“I think a major component to why video is so ubiquitous digitally right now is social media. Everybody has a smartphone. Everybody has access to Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat. All of these platforms are giving video the vehicle to really permeate the digital space. It’s not as simple anymore as just throwing a video up on the internet and hoping it sticks because there’s so much access to social media you really need to be in tune with your social media presence to get the most out of your videos.” – Gina Benigno, Video Production Manager at Temple University

“As our attention spans have declined, our consumption of online videos and multi-device usage has exploded. Why? Because, according to marketing industry influencer Krista Neher, the human brain can process images up to 60,000 times faster than words, and according to Forrester Research’s Dr. James McQuivey, ‘a minute of video is worth 1.8 million words.’”

“For your videos to get the maximum amount of views, it’s important to put them in front of the people who would be the most interested in what you’re saying. How do we do this? Three words: search engine optimization (SEO).”
