Content Marketing and the Power of Video [Infographic]

There’s no denying that video has become an increasingly powerful tool for content marketers.

But it’s not just that video is big right now – it’s that it’s getting bigger. Earlier this year, Social Media Examiner reported that video was the number one area where marketers planned to increase their investments for 2012. As a result, online video usage rose 12% amongst B2B content marketers, according to a recent Content Marketing Institute (CMI) survey.

For companies, interest in video content is obviously linked to the popularity of online video in general (in case you haven’t heard, YouTube averages 4 billion hits each day). And the rise in tablet adoption has certainly made videos more accessible for mobile viewers as well. But the truth is, video production has also become easier (and less costly) than ever before. As CMI founder Joe Pulizzi points out, the combination of new technology and the sheer cost of video production has reached “a point where there are no barriers to entry” for companies.

So what role is video playing in the world of content marketing today? We compiled some of the most compelling numbers and use cases from around the Web to help tell the story of online video marketing and the different ways organizations use it to drive more business.
