    Great video! It's easy to forget that YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, and so should be given the same content-optimizing attention as Google and Bing. The video today set an excellent example for how even small businesses can stake a claim in influential video - keep presentation simple, but the message powerful!

    Neat video! I don't know if I'd ever watched a "video infographic" before, but it was certainly fitting considering the content. I'd be interested to see links to the sources of the data referenced in the video, e.g. video ad spend projections.

    A note: it was actually tough to read some of the text due to the pretty generous letterspacing and comparatively small word spaces. Please consider changing that ratio in future videos to make the writing more legible – it's not on the screen for an exceptionally long period of time, so legibility is key.

    This professional typographer's guide (just a few paragraphs on letterspacing) would be an excellent resource to help you improve this in the future:

    With millions if not zillions of video uploaded daily in the internet, I wonder how many videos anyone get to watch daily even monthly in youtube

    Brilliant video, thanks. 2013 is most definitely the year of video with Vine launching and Instagram adding on video. These are great apps for consumers. VoxPopMe which launched a few months ago is the latest video platform and the great thing about this is that it's for consumers AND businesses - it connects brands with consumers by letting them post questions into the app and consumers can get paid for answering them with a video response. So marketers get their customer insight and app users get paid. It's better explained with at (with a video, fittingly!) 2013 has been such a great year for video innovation and it's only 3/4's through! All hail the video and how easy it is to leverage YouTube, the kind of video, to get a message out there.
