Your website may look great, it may have plenty of informative copy on the home page to entice and inform your web visitors.  But where is your video?  Did you know that most people retain 95% of the message in a video compared to only 10% of what they read in text?

Well you know now.  So it is now time to start thinking about the benefits of video for your business.  Have a look on YouTube, what do you see?  YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, second only to Google, who actually own YouTube.  So, whilst the bods at Google are still dominating the world you may want to jump on the video bandwagon and upload one to your website.
