Top Four Tools for Video Marketing Research

Marketers often use in-depth keyword research to optimize websites and blogs, but what about for online video marketing? More online Americans are using video sharing sites and they are doing so more frequently; searching for everything from laughing baby videos to product reviews. As of May 2011, 71% of online adults reported watching videos on a video sharing site such as YouTube or Vimeo, with YouTube drawing nearly 40% of all online video visits – putting it right behind Google as the second largest search engine.

For those of you joining in on the expanding online video marketing segment, researching keywords relevant to your audience will provide you with inventive ways to manage your video marketing campaigns and learn about the people viewing your videos.
