According to eMarketer, “digital remains in the driver’s seat” when it comes to advertising campaigns. The research firm projects $73.1 billion will be spent on TV ads by 2016. Michael Miller, author of YouTube for Business, says, “If done right, YouTube can provide a huge bang for your marketing buck. That’s because YouTube delivers a huge audience for very little investment. It’s a marketer’s dream channel.” Consider the following:
- More than one billion unique users visit YouTube each month;
- More than six billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube—that’s almost an hour for every person on Earth; and
- 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute.
