In the 8 years since YouTube has been with us, it's grown to be the second largest search engine in the world and the biggest online video portal by many a country mile. It's YouTube's world, we just live in it and now that fact has been confirmed by YouTube itself with the announcement that they have hit a staggering 1 Billion unique views every single month.
In terms of total viewership on its top 100 channels, the biggest country for YouTube is still far and away the United States. However, YouTube is seeing big gains in viewer and subscriber growth in the rest of the world.
A new study from video distribution service Invodo and Ecommerce consultants e-tailing confirms that there is an increase in the amount of consumers who feel more confident in buying a product or service after watching a demonstration video before they purchase.
Does Video with Obvious Fakery Detract From Overall Execution? Pepsi MAX and Jeff Gordon "Test Drive" Ad
