Everyone loves video. It's the content we consume at home and it's the content that is most memorable.

Vidyard, a video creation platform, ran a neurological study on the topic and found that video was far more engaging than text. This is where the PodSpot conversation begins. The results were staggering and the benefits are clear.

More companies are realising the power of video marketing. But how did we get here? And what are the issues facing businesses who want to lead into the practice?

There's no doubt that video has been emerging as a leading marketing technique since the rise of short-form video content platforms, such as TikTok, Instagram and Youtube (shorts). This, paired with the pandemic and the acceleration of remote work, has massively boosted the marketing trend. But there are issues associated with the technique, businesses find it can often be a challenge getting people onboard and in-front of camera, Ian and Chris go on to discuss the answers to these problems.

The power of video is alive and well within HubSpot too.
