In this post, you’ll learn how to turn your blogs to videos for free.
Social marketing videos is the future of digital marketing. There are several statistics online to support this claim. For example, it’s reported that there are six times more video retweets than photos on Twitter. Videos on Facebook have 10 times higher reach than regular posts (Socialbakers). About 74 percent of all internet traffic is from video content (Syndacast). And 64 percent of users are more likely to buy a product after watching a video (SmallBizTrends).
