Video marketing pops up all over the digital landscape and has embedded itself in just about every spare pixel to capture consumers’ attention. From powerhouse video sources like YouTube to more discreet positioning like pre-roll ads before a news video, there is an abundance of online real estate devoted to video advertising.
