Video email marketing, how well are you leveraging it?
Sales emails are filling up your inbox more than ever, and that’s why you need video email marketing.
Your ideal clients are getting smart, and learning how to ignore you.
Spam filters, and email automation apps help your clients dismiss your emails better than ever.
Some marketers are getting desperate, even hiring sales copywriters to improve email quality.
How can you possibly get the upper hand in this war over attention?
Start using video email marketing!
Video emails are showing a massively high open rate over those that don’t.
– says Vidyard, Lenovo, Tradeshift, and many more B2B marketers.
Want to cash in on those higher open rates?
In this blog we will introduce a new kind of video email marketing strategy, to turbo-charge your email personalization, increase open rates, and fatten up your sales funnel for good!
Body Language Boost!
Here’s an interesting statistic most email marketers don’t consider…
Only 7% of communication is received verbally (e.g. emails).
55% of communication is body language, and 38% is vocal.
In your regular old emails, you have literally NO body language, and NO vocal communication!
Video email marketing on the other hand, incorporates all 3 modalities of communication.
This means with video you have a 93% boost in communication power!
The difference is like going from black and white TV – to color.
Because video is such a powerful communication tool, is one of the reasons that it’s such a powerful marketing tool!
You need to have strong camera presence. Learn to overcome being camera shy, and your body language alone will boost your business!
So start using video in your email marketing, and you will see an increase in open rates!
The Video Email Marketing “Headline Advantage”
Without a doubt, the most important part of your email, is your headline.
Using the words “Sale,” “New,” or “Video” in subject lines boost open rates.
This is because people would rather watch a video than read another email.
According to a report from HubSpot Research, 54% of consumers want to see more videos from brands they support, in comparison to email newsletters (46%).
Here are some great examples headlines you can use…
- Check out this video on how to avoid getting hacked!
- 3 Steps to a better roof (video included)
- Video interview with the Marketing director of…
- How to get more open rates in your email marketing (video)
So, if you include a video in your email, you can rightfully use “video” in your headline, and effectively boost open rates, because people are more willing to watch a video email, than another boring text newsletter.
So… where do you start?
Having done this for several clients, we suggest choosing a few templates of your most common emails, and turning them into a video.

- Thank You for contacting us video
