In a sea of plain-text emails, introducing yourself with a video email allows you to put a face to the name; this helps build trust, credibility and rapport from the start. It’s the best way to get your foot in the door, get noticed and, most importantly, get responses.

2. On-demand demos

Getting a lead to commit to a live demo or meeting can present a host of challenges. Perhaps they’re hesitant to dedicate the time, maybe it’s tough to coordinate with their busy schedule or perhaps you’re selling a physical product they need to see in person.

When it’s time to hand off a client from sales to another department, send a video email to pass the proverbial baton and introduce your customer to their new best point of contact.
