We’ve seen time and again the statistics and the advice from industry experts about the growing popularity (necessity, even) of visual content as part of any social media strategy. And for good reason – when you’re trying to grab someone’s attention and get your message across quickly, it’s visuals that really stick.

To illustrate that point in the most appropriate forum possible, let’s watch a video!
