Private Video Hosting Platforms for Business—20 Top Solutions

According to recent research:

  • 86% of businesses now use video in their marketing (that’s increased by 41% in just 5 years)
  • 83% say video has increased the average time visitors are spending on their website
  • 84% say video helps them generate leads
  • 78% say video has directly helped to grow their sales
  • 86% say video has increased their traffic.

The benefits of using video for business—and the return on investment that video gives you as a result—are clear.

But the default option for many businesses is to still use free public platforms such as YouTube.

That’s not always in your best interests...

What Is a Private Video Hosting Platform?

Private video hosting platforms for business can increase the ROI you get from video marketing, as well as provide other facilities such as asset protection, efficient video management for teams, live streaming at scale and analytics.

For example, you may want to control who views your video content and how its distributed, while gaining the facility to do things like overlay calls to action and add forms for lead generation.

Why Should You Consider a Private Video Hosting Platform?

Some key reasons include the ability to:

  • Live stream video at scale through multiple channels
  • Monetize your videos in different ways, including adding your own ad content
  • Provide a speedier experience for viewers
  • Remove unwanted distractions that platforms like YouTube layer into your video
  • Secure your video content, and ensure it’s only available for those who should have access to it
  • Boost engagement with recommendation engines that only recommend follow-on videos from your own library
  • Access proper support and technical assistance
  • View analytics to better understand engagement and assist with content amplification
  • And other facilities that you’ll discover below...

Sample Review

“I like Publitio because right now I have a high-speed storage space for media I posted on my sites, including videos, images. Features like watermarking can make my digital assets safer. Also, I can resize, crop and convert images in a suitable format simply with the URL. It is an awesome hosting storage solution for publishers, developers, and agencies... you can choose from a variety of video players to put on your site, [rather than] using Youtube hosted videos... [At the] same time, it gives you the opportunity to better monetize your videos and images by adding Ads Tags to your media assets.”
