According to the 2015 DS Simon Media Influencers Report 76% of journalists say they use externally produced video. With all the newsroom layoffs that have occured over the last two years, it makes perfect sense. And newspapers, magazines and radio stations never had those resources. They didnt need them until they had a website. Now everyone wants video.
And the demand is only going to increase. The journalists polled predicted that they'll be using "much more" PR video in the future.
The PRESSfeed Media Trends & Online Newsroom report hosw that only 30% of the Fortune 100 companies in the US have a video gallery in their online newsroom. And only 22% use multimedia with their press releases. that's a huge missed opportuity right there.
Video is one of the biggest earned media opportunities to come along in years. And while the rest of the companies and PR departments are still trying to figure out how to take advantage of this, the first movers will clean up in the next six months to a year.
