When focusing on growing a business; email marketing, analytics, and social media are all incredibly important areas of focus. VBOUT is a wonderful resource for nurturing these values, as it provides a hub for email automation, lead management, and more.
But whilst generating email campaigns and automating follow-ups, how can you ensure that your message reaches and impacts your customer?
How do you solidify yourself as the best choice compared to your competitors? The answer is simple: send videos!
Why Send Videos in VBOUT Emails
It's always difficult to find ways to really stand out from the crowd in terms of marketing your product. Especially when it comes to digital marketing, it’s incredibly important that your company is able to make waves in an inbox. If you want to really make your message heard, video is the way to go. Video messages have consistently proven to drive more user engagement. In fact, personalized videos can actually spark a 500% increase in email engagement for your company.
Video is also a fantastic way to show, rather than tell potential customers about your product. It is significantly more impactful for a customer to see a product in action through a video message, than it is for them to read about it in a lengthy blurb.
Additionally, video messaging provides a more authentic way to connect with customers and increase your chances of successfully marketing your product. With video, you can formulate a more personalized connection. Video allows you to simulate a real conversation and make a customer feel like you are actually speaking directly to them. You can humanize yourself in a customers’ inbox that may otherwise be filled with automated and robotic messages from other businesses.
When to Send Videos about VBOUT Emails
There are plenty of different scenarios that call for a video to be sent, as opposed to a text-based message. Below are a few different use cases for sending videos:
Video messages are perfect for sales outreach - use video to stand out, pitch yourself and your product, and make a personal connection for sales prospective emails.
Use video to keep customers engaged and invested in your brand until they’re ready to purchase. You can use Sendspark and VBOUT together to embed customer testimonial videos, thought leadership videos, and other engaging content.
Video emails are a wonderful way to announce new products & services to show, rather than tell.
Provide detailed how-to videos to help new clients get started without having to read long manuals. You’re far more likely to maintain their interest and attention in a video message than with a lengthy text manual.
Customer activation & expansion
Continue to send video emails throughout your client’s lifecycle to help them get the most out of your solution – and even demo premium product offerings to increase their account.
