Video is Rocket Fuel for Email Marketing

Imagine your email marketing is like a little fire and this little fire is great. It keeps you warm, keeps you happy. Much like your typical email marketing campaign. It works, does the job, still effective here and there. You get some wins.

But deep down you’re like, I want a larger fire! One that people want to crowd around and read. I want my email marketing campaign to take off like a rocket and amazing tons of people!

Well, that’s what adding video to your email marketing campaign will do.

Embedding a video to the body of your email does so many amazing things!

Here are 3 things to do to your video in your email marketing campaigns that are really going to help them catch fire!

  • Include “video” in your subject line. Why? Adding the word “video” in your subject line boost open rates by 19%!
  • Add a clickable animated GIF with a play button so it tells the person, that this is a video just for them. Do not just do a still image. 
  • Use the video you create in your email message to drive home the value proposition of what is being communicated in that email, let that video take your customer down the sales funnel you want them to go down. 

On top of that, studies show that if someone watches a video about a product or service they are 50% more likely to buy it.

The world’s best marketers are leveraging video in their email marketing, it’s time that you do it for yourself and for your clients. 

If you’re like most people, you might be wondering, how in the world do I even begin to do this? I don’t have the time to…

  • Record a video
  • Upload it and host the video somewhere
  • Create an animated GIF
  • Add that to the email
  • Hyperlink it to a landing page were the video lives
