It only takes a few minutes viewing your Google Plus stream before you notice that Video’s are one of the top forms of communication. The most exciting part is now the predominate viewers of the Google+ stream is…? Yes, Consumers!!

Businesses first impression to video marketing it is too expensive, which it can be if you use a production company focused on their outcome and not the clients. This fear of high costs results in many businesses feeling they need to produce their videos themselves to save money. When they start the process of producing their own videos thy quickly face the reality they don’t have the equipment, don’t know how, don’t have the time, and/or don’t like the way we look on video.
YouTube and Google+ Will Take Control of the Social Spaces
Whatever the reason, business owners are not utilizing video marketing as much as they should.
This is concerning since studies are showing consumers are starting to use YouTube more than the Google Search engine when it comes to finding information about a product or service. The good news is, Google+ is connected to YouTube making the interaction consumers have on YouTube visible on Google+.
