Video blogging, known commonly on the internet just as “vBlogging,” is a form of blogging in which the medium utilized is video. vBlogs often combine embedded video with supporting text, images, and other metadata, but they can also be employed by themselves. vBlogs are extremely popular on YouTube, where popular bloggers upload daily. vBlogs for corporate use often take advantage of the RSS feed tool for distribution and automatic playback on mobile devices and personal computers.
In January 2000, Adam Kontras posted a video alongside a blog entry aimed at informing friends and family that he would soon be embarking on a cross-country move to California in pursuit of show business. He didn’t know it at the time, but this video would later be considered the first true video blog in history. Soon after, the popularity in vBlogging rose, and skyrocketed with the introduction of YouTube in February 2005.
Today, over 800 million unique users visit YouTube each month, and over 3 billion hours of video are watched in the same amount of time. 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute, and 500 years of YouTube video are watched every day on Facebook!
With these kinds of statistics, it would insane for your corporate business to not utilize professional video blogging on your website. These vBlogs do not need to be created and posted daily—weekly or even monthly videos work just as well. These videos will serve to keep your current customers interested in your services and attract the attention of potential clients.
