Finding the Right Video Hosting + Marketing Platform For You

  1. 1. WHEN YOUTUBE IS NOT ENOUGH... TOP VIDEO HOSTING PLATFORMS REVIEWED
  2. 2. IF YOU’RE A SERIOUS MARKETER, YOUTUBE WON’T CUT IT Any ol’ marketer from New York City to Timbuktu knows to put his videos on YouTube, the “no-duh” (free) go-to place to host your video content. And now Facebook has been going hard on video for over the past year, sucking up and promoting as much video content as much as they can. We wrote about all the free ways you can promote your videos or look at your video ROI and analytics in previous posts. But the truth is that savvy marketers know that they can’t rely solely on free hosting, especially if they want more control, analytics and insights into what’s working and what’s not. Instead, at some point they will have to turn to paid video marketing platforms like Vidyard, Wistia, VideoSprout and others.
