Uncertainty abounds in today’s business climate, but it has become clear that online video will be an integral part of the communication mix moving forward.  Data shows that 2008 was a landmark year in online video. According to comScore, 75 percent of the U.S. Internet audience watched video online in 2008 and the average online video viewer watched nearly four hours of online video per month.

During a recent survey by our series sponsor, PermissionTV, brand marketing and agency executives made it clear that online video initiatives will be imperative in 2009, while lack of skilled resources still topped their list as the primary barrier to implementation.

"What's a minute of video worth? If a picture is worth a thousand words, then what's a minute of video worth? If you do the math, you get something like 1.8 million words, or about 6 days of non-stop reading. My point? Online video is worth a lot more than we think. We need to figure out how to leverage video in everything we do to communicate our messages and to market our products, services and brand."
- Matt Kaplan Chief Strategy Officer, PermissionTV.
