  • VIDEO USAGE Of the B2B professionals participating in this study, more than two-thirds (69%) have used video for B2B marketing purposes. The remaining 31% have not begun using video in their marketing strategies, however, they are planning to in the future. Organizations that have not used video for marketing and are not planning to were disqualified from participating in the remainder of the survey.

Survey participants were asked to choose all of the objectives that applied to their organization. The data from these responses is displayed in Figure 2. Although brand awareness is not easily measured, more than half of respondents (52%) found this objective to be the most important for the upcoming year. Not surprisingly, increasing lead generation and online engagement followed closely behind the leading response. Interestingly, the objectives for increasing conversion rates and direct sales were chosen the least for this survey question. However, one can infer that, by way of the other objectives on this list, video marketing initiatives will eventually produce more conversions and generate more revenue for the organization.
