the impact show episode 76

I've created a Facebook event you can join if you want to get reminded of each new episode! Episodes will air in IMPACT Elite every other Wednesday at 11:30am ET and Nick and I will be watching along side you and hanging out in the comments!

What Inbounders Be Talkin’ Bout

This is where we talk about what you - inbound pros working sales, marketing, service, and leadership - need to know and are talking about.

Using Video in the Sales Process

Nick kicked off this episode by talking us through some ways to use video in the sales process. Here are some of the examples he shared:

  • Pre-Explore call (warm it up, build rapport, confirm agenda, assign prep work)
  • Post-Explore Call (review what’s going to happen next, what’s in your email(s))
  • Demo/Diagnostic (screenshare)
  • Proposal/SOW review or recap
  • Re-engage, get back on track, set expectations

Why video in sales?

According to Forbes, 90% of customers say video helps them make buying decisions and 64% of customers say that seeing a video makes them more likely to buy.

Then we jumped into discussing how to optimize these videos and emails. 

Merely mentioning the word "video" in an email subject line increased the click-through rate by 13%.

Here are some vital pieces of optimizing your video in email strategy:

  • Animate the thumbnail
  • Make sure your URL is tracking watch analytics
  • Start with a smile and personalize when possible

There are so many ways to add videos to emails and each one functions slightly differently. Naturally, I made a tutorial to cover each situation!

 

The Inbound Doer’s Corner

This is where we pick someone from the community who we feel like you need to know about.

Our guest of the week is someone making great moves in their campaigns, have leadership lessons we can learn from, or are just overall awesome people you should make it a priority to get to know.

This week we’re hearing from Leah Hovland, who does marketing at KOGGER in Norway.
