Distribution channels where video content is used
63% Social media 63% Website
Shocking discovery (note the sarcasm): social media and websites continue to dominate on the distribution front in 2022. But the report emphasises that YouTube has taken a hit for the first time, shoved reluctantly down the order by the ‘sales and customer conversations’ segment. This only works to emphasise the power of video as a sales tool, with its ability to capture prospective customers’ attentions and nail down deals.

In 2021, the average length of video was nine minutes, 58 seconds – a perceptible jump from 2020’s average of six minutes. This doesn’t mean the exponential growth of short-form video isn’t present, with 56% of videos under two minutes long.
