It used to be that making video and especially animated video was hard, but now there is no excuse.  Not only is placing videos on websites easy, but making them is just as easy.  There are many ways to record videos including those provided directly by YouTube and other software for live recordings.  Now there are also many services such as which allow anyone with no animated video making skills to make professional quality animated videos—and their services are free.  So the entry into video marketing and videomail is very low.  The only thing that remains is making the video thumbnail for the email and this too is easy with services such as making these thumbnails is also easy.  There is no reason whatsoever not to engage in videomail marketing.
