Social media is forever evolving and although we know that content is king, the perfect type of content for your business is ever changing. But as of recent, certain algorithms have tended to favour videos, and marketers alike are working with brands to get on board with this growing trend!
Social Media platforms such as Facebook, for example, support original video content, resulting in optimised organic reach for the brands who post them. And with 8 Billion daily views for Facebook video, you really want to be one of those brands!
