Video Marketing Changes in 2021
The news of YouTube canceling the customary ‘rewind’ video this year invoked mixed reactions. Given what everyone has gone through, this was the right thing to do. The year is almost over, and it’s time to start thinking about making the future a better place for everyone. The pandemic lockdowns were manageable by YouTube, which allowed businesses to entertain and engage their target audience.
In 2021, video marketing will be different from previous years. To succeed with your video marketing strategy, you must have a strong foundation built with credible statistics. Here are some of the most important YouTube statistics that will play a significant role in your video marketing campaigns in 2021 and beyond.
Statistics on YouTube Users, Usage, and Preferences

What Is the Role of YouTube in Business?
Businesses spend billions of dollars per year on YouTube to promote their brand. As more users share their videos on the platform, the numbers continue to rise.

Learning to speak in the style and tone that your target audience prefers and incorporating your unique offering from the start can help you attract more viewers and boost engagement.
