The four essentials of any good B2B marketing story; why video is on the rise as the content asset of choice; and the top use cases for video storytelling.

The medium you choose to convey a B2B marketing story can greatly affect its impact. Animation, motion graphics, video, movie…whatever you name it, content that tells a story via moving images can generate leads, enhance a brand, and deliver information in ways that truly engage B2B audiences. In this paper, we explore the essentials of a good B2B story, why video is becoming more popular as a B2B content asset, the best use cases for video storytelling, and when it makes sense to call in the professionals vs firing up the smartphone camera.

 Key details
