YouTube ranks as the second largest search engine in the world
Over the years, we have seen how much Youtube has grown. Fast, easy and shareable video access has always been their goal. YouTube makes it easy to get started and share your content with a large audience. The simplicity with which people can get started on YouTube has contributed to attracting millions of content creators around the world. This exponential growth story has created a hub of video content that is accelerating some very powerful digital trends.
Over 2 Billion People Worldwide are tuned in to Youtube
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki announced at a Brandcast marketing event in NYC that the Google-owned video behemoth now counts 2 billion monthly unique users globally. That’s up around 5% from its previously reported 1.9 billion monthly logged-in users last summer.
For digital marketers, this makes a prime opportunity to capture the attention of their audience where they are searching for what matters to them most, build brand awareness, leads, and make sales and form a foundation of loyal customers.
Because of Youtube’s huge success and reach, it’s no surprise that the video-hosting platform is a go-to among marketers today.
Nearly eight out of ten (78.8 percent) of marketers consider it to be the most effective platform for video marketing (GO Globe, 2019). Only 58.5 percent of marketers consider Facebook to be the most effective video marketing platform.

Both U.S. and U.K.’s millennial markets show that Youtube is the most used social network. This goes to show that audiences prefer visual content among other types.
