Video Marketing on Social Media Statistics 2016

Survey: Video Marketing on Social Media

These statistics were gathered by surveying 415 unique respondents, from both paid and organic sources. We targeted UK and USA audiences, however didn't make this a requirement to complete the survey. We didn't specify further criteria for entry to the survey. We did this so that we achieved a broad demographic spectrum. We asked an initial question to understand who had watched a branded video on social media. If people answered "No" this filtered them out from the rest of the survey as they are not applicable.
