New research around video marketing, especially adding video to your search efforts and incorporating YouTube in search strategies, is out from Google and the 4A’s. While both of those parties greatly benefit from you spending more on video marketing, the research is compelling: Start doing video if you aren’t already.
I talk about video marketing in light of the research, dive deeper into the usefulness of video marketing platforms like our sponsor Switcher Studio and answer LinkedIn Live questions during this episode of Go Ahead Caller.
And, toward the end, I open up the conversation of diversity hiring in the marketing, PR and digital industries. It’s high time we talked about the topic more so we can close the hiring gap and bring more diversity to our workforces and more work to diverse talent.
