How Video Email Marketing is Changing the Game for Businesses…

Without a doubt, Email Marketing, when done properly, is one of the most useful methods of online marketing today.

With an exceptional ROI, regardless of your business niche, studies have shown that Email Marketing can bring in up to $38 for every $1 you spend on it.

This far outpaces other forms of online marketing. It’s hard to believe you could improve on these stats, but Video Email Marketing is doing it.

So, why should you want to use video email marketing in your business?

For starters, Video Email Marketing makes your customers want to OPEN your emails.

We all get a deluge of junk mail everyday we have to sort through to determine what we want to spend time reading.

You can differentiate yourself with a video on your email.

Video Can Personalize Your Business…

In general, video can personalize your business far better than copy-writing.

Why? People are social creatures. They want to see the people they are doing business with or making a purchase from.

Using Video Can Help You Up-sell Your Customers…

Virtually every product or service can benefit from being seen on video, whether in person or even with a collection of images, text and a voice-over.

However, up-selling can really double the benefit from video marketing in email.

You can take a common up-sell to your main product or service. Present it in a video to potential prospects, and give them the opportunity to purchase it for a small fee.
