Nowadays, social platforms such as Facebook and Instagram rely on videos; they even improved their APP to compete against YouTube and win over the market. Once you enter these social network’s applications, you will see there is a section intended only for videos.
If this is not a good enough reason for you to start using video marketing, perhaps knowing that more than 85% of the companies in The United States use it, will convince you to do so.
In this article, we will talk about video marketing; its definition, types of videos, and tools needed so that you can start using them in your new venture.
What is Video Marketing?

Promotional Video: It is a video where we demonstrate the use of our product or the benefits of our service. This type of video always features a 2×1 offer, some discount, or the opportunity of becoming an affiliate marketer.
