Alot of people have been saying that 2016 will be the year of online video streaming. Most of you probably think that this prediction is a little bit late and more like 2014 and 2015 were the year of online streaming. In some cases you are correct, but from an advertisers view 2017 will be seeing a lot more ad revenue from online video ads. Because of the last few years, youtube, netflix, hulu ect ect have grown at amazing rates and this has been noticed by company so much that most of the major company’s are now switching there cable advertising budgets over to online video advertising. This is great for everyone task management tool. we no longer need to be apart of a big time production company to make some money. We can now get a piece of this pie while sitting at our computers at home and walking around a store with our family’s.
In a report by Cisco there will be almost 1 million minutes of video shared every second. Video isnt just an important part of the online industry. video is the online industry. Many people are canceling their cable subscriptions and using hulu and netflix to watch movies and tv shows. youtube destroyed Hollywood to the point that most tv shows are now just vlogs (aka reality shows). Big company’s see this and we all can cash in on it. Start a youtube channel now and by 2019 you would of made enough money to buy me a cup of coffee. Facebook alone is generating 8 billion video views a day at the time of writing this. There never has been 8 billion views for the super bowl! I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t see youtube hosting the next super bowl actually. The ammont of time internet surfers has spent watching videos on youtube has increased by over 60% year after year for since 2012.
Dont take my word on it though, see what forbes had to say about this. CES 2016: Video Streaming — It’s Going To Be Big
