You guys know I'm a big fan of using video for local marketing. Google LOVES video! Yet I don't hear it talked about much in local. Partly because after video was killed on the old Place pages people got frustrated and stopped adding. Then upgrades to G+ started but it was confusing. Then with YouTube being integrated, it got even more complicated. And now the G+ Local pages are so hidden, I think more local businesses will say why bother? BUT Google still loves video and customers do too!

So what does that make Video? A RED HAT opportunity! A chance to make your client stand out.
Not just for customers, but for Google too. (See Red Hat link below.)

Since I love video I try to stay on top of good posts about video marketing. Here are a few I've collected recently for your viewing pleasure. :)

NOTE: These aren't local specific, just great posts about video marketing in general.
