It's possible to conclude from our prior blogs that inbound marketing is most concentrated on the written word. At first blush this may seem true given the emphasis on blogging, choosing the best long-tail keywords and getting "found" through carefully drawn SEO. Yet the messages delivered by inbound are not constrained by the medium. On the contrary, video can be artfully enhanced by incorporating inbound techniques, and can benefit from the same measurable increase in ROI as other vehicles.
