Because production is no longer intimidating –
everybody’s got a 1080p recording device in their pocket
– we’re going to see better videos from marketers, and
lots more of them.
With unique integrations with MAPs and CRMs, content
marketers will be able to see what’s resonating and why.
Customer insight and analytics will shape video content
going forward. You’ll modify and amplify your strategy
based on your video’s quantiﬁable performance.
Eventually, you won’t have to look for the best content online
because the most relevant stuﬀ will ﬁnd you!
Marketing automation will help serve up the perfect video
content to the perfect lead at the perfect time.
The future’s here, and I’m very excited to see what
marketers bring to the table.
