Why Send Personalized Videos at Scale?

Personalized vides can make a big impact on your customer journey. Stats show that video emails convert ~300% higher than their text-based counterparts, and 59% of senior professionals like to watch a video before making a purchase decision. These are a few reasons why we recommend sending video emails to customers. 

  • Increase email engagement across your sales outreach, onboarding, or nurture campaigns
  • Build brand loyalty
  • Look innovative to prospective customers

That being said, if you have a large email list, it’s virtually impossible to personalize each video email for each recipient. You have to be more efficient. 

By using dynamic variables, you can personalize videos at scale. This lets you automatically fill in customer data for your viewers, so no matter how many people are on your email list, each recipient always sees their own name or company name on their video. 

You will see the same great conversion rates across your entire email list. 

Can you add videos to Hubspot emails?

Yes, there are a few ways to embed videos in Hubspot emails:

  1. For the video to play in email: Use an HTML block in your email and embed an HTML video player
  2. For the video to open in a new browser: Use an image or GIF preview of your video in email, and link to a video hosted on the web

Can you bulk personalize video emails in Hubspot? 

Yes, you can bulk personalize videos in emails using Hubspot and Sendspark together. If you create your video on Sendspark, you’ll be able to pull in data from your Hubspot CRM to dynamically change the video thumbnail or content around the video. This lets you automatically deliver personalized video experiences to customers, no matter how many people are on your email list. 

What information can you personalize?

The Sendspark + Hubspot Marketing Hub integration support a few personalization tokens: 

  • First name – will pull in the contact’s first name
  • Job title – will pull in the contact’s job title
  • Company – will pull in the contact's company name (note: this is a contact variable in Hubspot, not a company variable)

You can set fallback variables for all of these variables, so if the information is unknown in Hubspot, your viewer will see the fallback variable that you set.
