We’ve been hearing about the big predictions the impact that video will have on the Internet for years. According to a new study, video is predicted to account for 84% of all Internet traffic by 2018!

The report from Cisco, ‘2014 Complete VNI Global IP Traffic Forecast for 2013-2018‘ is the latest to speculate about our Internet consumption and explosion of video online content. As in one of my previous blogs ‘Will your website become a TV Channel?’ we predict that people will be watching webpages like we do TV rather than reading them. Therefore it is becoming increasing important to have not just one video, but many videos on your website.

But what kind of videos should you have? Watch the short video below to find out the three kind of videos you need to start with on your website.
