Online videos currently capture 90% of all internet traffic. Email marketing campaigns are markedly more effective when mixed with video, as video helps to provide a much higher – 85% – “close rate”.  Mobile videos have been proven to be the most effective form of learning by next generation (ngen) workers. According to recent statistics, an average 1-minute video equals 180,000 words.
