Most of the world's Internet traffic is accounted for by video viewed on web and mobile applications. The latest ComScore Video Metrix study found out that, in Germany alone, in January 2014, 46 million users viewed 7.8 billion videos.
The Consumer Lab Trends study from the mobile phone manufacturer Ericsson makes the following statement in this regard: "By blurring the lines between communication and media, consumers are more than ever before ready to integrate video into their daily communication."
VIDEO INCREASES THE EFFECTIVENESS OF E-MAIL MARKETING
The incredibly high coverage provided by video is motivated by one thing: Users would rather look at images than take the time to read texts. A recent study by the market research company, ComScore, demonstrates an enormous 96% increase in click probability when e-mails or newsletters contain links to video content.

Videos on your own website not only improve its ranking in search engines, but are also the most shared content on Facebook and Co. and reach decision-makers and opinion leaders better. About 59% of managers in companies admit they would rather watch videos than read text.
