10 Video Marketing Trends To Look Out For In 2017: A solid list, with nothing too new, or too exciting. Less a piece on trends than taking stock of the current situation – like the integration of video into emails (amazingly enough that’s still a challenge – although there are some very good workarounds).

9 New Visual Content Marketing Trends for 2017: Also solid surprising list with a very relevant focus on visual content – be it (stock) photos or video content.
