The rise of video marketing

As I mentioned in my last post, it’s plain to see nowadays that the nature of the web is constantly changing and evolving.

One change that I noticed is cropping up again and again is that video marketing is becoming more and more important. The rise of youtube has almost definitely played a part. Nowadays youtube is an incredible opportunity for anyone to launch a career for themselves – and it can be within any particular niche at all.

Businesses and companies are also beginning to pick up on the power that Youtube holds and have begun designating large amounts of their marketing budgets on video and video production.

Another thing I have begun to notice is that videos have been showing up much more prominently in search engines recently, especially Google, and it seems they are given some sort of boost or preference simply because they are videos instead of webpages.

This makes sense – maybe the average person does prefer digesting content via the medium of video rather than having to click on a webpage and read it’s contents to themselves before they can understand what it is about. Video is much more immediate and doesn’t really involve any effort.


Another reason for this new turn could be the fact that Google has recently purchased Youtube and is therefore giving it special treatment in it’s search results page. This is a pretty good explanation.

Either way the importance of video marketing has never been so high, and this is a great moment for production companies to take advantage and approach other businesses in an attempt to show just how important this form of marketing is right now.

Out of pure interest, I decided to do a bit of research myself in an attempt to find a good looking production company if it any point a scenario arose in which I needed a video made. I found quite a few good ones just on Google alone, but these corporate videographer and video production services seemed to be the pick of the bunch.

I hope you liked this post – it wasn’t the longest but I think I was able to cover a pretty interesting topic that is extremely relevant right now.

A quick thought…

I’ve begun to notice how the world of surfing the net is changing. As time goes by, and especially in this last year, the rise of mobile phones and tablets with access to the internet has come hurtling round the corner at a tremendous rate.

More and more of us our spending our quality surfing time on our hand held items rather than personal computers and laptops. The question is, has this changed the way we surf? Are we now more likely to search for different things. Another interesting point is one that many have already predicted. Some suggest that in the near future, instead of accessing the web via a browser, we will all use apps for websites and apps alone.

I want to know your thoughts about this. Pleas let me know what you think below.

Why surfing the web is the best way to find a great place to stay

There are so many things I love about the internet, but most of all is it’s speed and accuracy. Perhaps instead of saying ‘internet’ I should have said Google, but I think you get what I mean.

Whenever you need help with anything, and I mean anything, you are in a jiffy, you just need an answer to an incredibly specific answer, the internet is there for you. In fact it’s pretty much the reason why it came about in the first place. It is a resource, and the best one there ever was and will be at that.

There have been so many tight situations I’ve been in over the recent years, where I know that without direct access to the internet I would have been completely screwed. Ten years ago, what would you have done if you were at a party or wedding reception in an obscure place and you needed to book a taxi but had no phone reception. There’s literally nothing you can do about that. But now, the fact that the internet is accessible on our handy phones means this, and so many other problems can be solved in very little time.

I think from time to time we are guilty of taking this for granted a little bit. Just imagine what our grandparents would say if we could go back in time and attempt to explain to them all of the mind-boggling and crazy stuff we can do just with a small gadget that we keep in our pockets. I sometimes forget to remember just how incredible technology is, and how powerful the internet truly is.

The fact that i have it accessible on my phone has got me out of many tricky situations. For instance a few weeks ago, I was visiting a friend in the south west of England, but unfortunately I had forgotten that I had already used my monthly minute of call time on my phone, so there was no way for me to get hold of my friend. I ended up finding a very nice place to stay for the night all through the internet on my phone. I typed in rooms to rent +bristol. I managed to book it on my phone too, and ended up having a very nice time indeed. None of this would have been possible without the internet.

If you want to, please let me know when and where the power of the web has saved your butt and gotten you out of a jam.

Hello and Welcome

Welcome to Surf 983. I’ve put this website together so I have a space where I can talk about the world wide web. Surfing the net is probably my favourite hobby and it’s pretty much the only thing I do in my spare time. As you can imagine there are many things I come across and learn, and I thought I’d use this website as a place where I can relay all this information. Come back soon for my first article!
