Video Advertising is YouTube the best platform?

Latest viewing figures show Youtube is growing year on year, and while this would appear to be the best place for your video advertising, knowing who your audience is and how to focus directly to them means you have more chance of being heard and seen in the crowd.

Current viewing figures show Youtube is increasing year on year with over 35 hours of video uploaded every second.

Video advertising providers need to make their clients aware that creating video content is the first stage in a marketing plan for successfully promoting your business, products and services.
