42 Online Video Content Ideas for Business Marketing

If you have ever wondered how you might be able to use video for your business, I present you with 42 potential ideas below.  I was impressed when I saw this great post from Jimm Fox of OneMarketMedia. In it, Jimm outlines 42 different use cases for online video in business marketing and communication efforts.  I've briefly outlined the 42 that he came up with and while I think there are a select few that might be redundant, I'm hard pressed to think of many additional ones, can you?

Also, I'm not sure that I completely agree with or fully understand the popularity/growth indications for each of these, but I left them in as I feel that they are accurate in most cases.
