So what can you do to make your emails stand out from your customer’s inbox?
Adding a video into your emails can increase click-through rates (CTR), conversions, brand awareness, and help educate your customers.
In fact, video email can lead to open rate increases of up to 13%. Videos are engaging, entreating, and allow you to quickly and effectively communicate with your audience.
Why Use Video Email as Part of Your Email Outreach Strategy?
Here are 5 benefits of video email marketing to help you successfully reach out to your prospects and customers, and potentially win a deal.
1. Increase Email Open Rates
Remarkably, studies have found that just including the word “video” is enough to increase email open rates — by a whopping 7% to 13%.
Why? Because people are naturally curious.
As well as simply conveying the core message of the email, adding “video” to the subject line piques a reader’s interest, compelling them to open the email.
Simply put, they want to know what’s in the video.
2. Increase Conversions and CTR
An email including a video can increase your email CTR by up to 300% and reduce your unsubscribe rate by 75%.
Once your prospects open the email with “video” included in your subject line; they would want to find out what it is about. Just like that, they will click the video to watch and increase the CTR of your email. If your video is precise and can capture their interests, they might even convert and sign up for the lead form to find out more about your offerings.
3. Build Brand Awareness and Trust
A personalized video is impactful because it speaks to one instead of many. Also, you can deliver unique personalized video content to thousands of recipients with just a click. Naturally we all gravitate towards that goofy looking human smiling back at us.
Videos have been proven to increase conversion rates by 80%. Use video in your email to put a face to your business, help your leads trust you, and convert faster.
4. Time Saving
Nowadays people have busy (and distracted) lives. Plenty of people would rather watch a one-minute video than spend 15 minutes reading a long-form article or be on a 10-minute call with the sales. A benefit of videos is that they can quickly and easily get across your core message and grab the attention of viewers. Even complex subjects can be made easier to understand.
5. Stay Out of Trash
Good-quality and engaging videos capture the attention of the readers and reduce the likelihood that your email will go straight to trash. When done well, it’s also a valuable opportunity to give an excellent impression of your service or product.
