Video: Stories, Tutorials and Explainers

We don’t need to tell you about the power of video. We all use it every day. Why would you trawl through step-by-step instructions in support pages or read and then re-read lengthy articles when you can watch a quick video that makes everything easy to understand? Here are a couple of our favourite e-commerce video channels:

1. Foundr

Foundr shares the e-commerce strategies and experiences of successful businesses and entrepreneurs, whilst providing actionable content through an impressive library of videos.

There is always fresh and up to date content with weekly videos and at less than 10 minutes each, what’s your excuse not to watch them?
