Our list of the best video marketing blogs and resources
Video marketing is a dynamic industry, and things change quickly. Staying up to date with developments, and trying to make sense of what you should be doing can be daunting.
We’re fairly new to the video marketing game, which means we can write this post from experience of learning about the industry. There are other lists out there, but they were often outdated or no longer correct.
Seeing this, we decided to put together a list of the resources we have found most helpful, and the blogs we keep track of. Welcome to the world of video marketing – happy reading!
ReelSEO – http://www.reelseo.com/
ReelSEO is definitely one of the leaders in the Video Marketing space. The site is regularly updated with news, advice and strategies – not to mention a huge amount of information on Video SEO.
Videofruit – http://blog.videofruit.com/
Twitter – @Harris_Bryan
While Videofruit isn’t as focused on video as some of the other sites, it’s quickly become a favourite of ours. Bryan posts twice a week, and each post is filled with tips on growing your business and improving your conversion rate – all written from experience as he implements the different strategies.
The posts have actually shaped a lot of what we do here at Replay Science, so we definitely agree with the advice you’ll find here.
