Video marketing is becoming increasingly important in today’s content creation. According to videobrewery.com, 90% of online customers find videos to be helpful and 80% of users will recall a video advert they watched on a website they visited in the past 30 days.
In video production, there are many barriers preventing budding creators. As video content grows in popularity, though, so have the free resources available. If you run a digital agency, finding the tools for your staff can prove an expensive business if you are unaware of the market.
So, with that in mind, here are five free resources for you to check out:
- Creative Cow: Creative Cow is an excellent tool for free instructional content. A peer-to-peer forum set up by a community of creators, Creative Cow features video tutorials, editorials, podcasts and product reviews. Creators can also share their content on the site for immediate feedback.
