First things first, what’s a video email?
A video email is similar to a traditional email you would receive, however, rather than writing a traditional email, you’d record a short video of yourself to include. These are one-off videos that are quick, to the point, and recorded for one individual or a small group. Naturally, these videos are highly personalized, which captures your recipient’s attention. The content of your message remains the same, the only difference is you’re delivering it via video rather than through text alone.
When your recipients open up the email in their inbox – they’ll see an animated thumbnail for your video, which encourages them to click and watch. Once clicked, the recipient will be directed to a branded video landing page with your video, contact information, and custom call-to-action buttons that encourage engagement.
Why add video to Hubspot emails?
The average professional receives an average of 120 new emails daily. From that number, 10% are deleted without ever being opened, and only 25% receive a response.
On the contrary, email is the main method of outreach, specifically for sales teams, to generate new leads. So if email’s supposed to be the primary communication method, yet 75% of messages go unnoticed, how do you get your email to stand out from the rest? Simple enough, the answer is video. And there’s evidence to prove it.
Research shows that adding personalized video to emails engages recipients and drives action. Specifically, adding video in emails increases:
- Open rates by 19%
- Click through rates by 65%
- Response rates by 200%
4 Additional Benefits of Video Email
There’s no doubt that video email increases engagement and email metrics, but it brings a few additional benefits to your messages. See the impact when you add video to Hubspot emails:
1. Add personalization
Consumers expect a personalized experience with brands, and what’s more personal than a video recorded specifically for your recipient? You can touch on previous conversations, a relevant issue in the industry, or write the recipient’s name on a whiteboard to grab their attention. Whatever your tactic, video allows you to bring an authentic voice to the conversation, and create highly personalized messages that just hit differently than plain text.
2. Increase engagement
Like the stats show above, consumers prefer watching videos to reading a long block of text. Sending video emails increase open, click-through, and response rates – but they also provide an interactive experience where your recipient can watch your video, and click on custom CTA buttons.
3. Differentiate yourself
The inbox is competitive real estate. Picture this: you receive a plain text email and a video email, which one is more likely to capture your attention? Case in point. Video email is a great way to stand out against your competitors and do something different.
4. Communicate more effectively
Say goodbye to misinterpretations and miscommunications via plain text. Video captures both verbal and nonverbal elements of communication such as tone, gestures, and eye contact that make for a more complete message.
