Ditch Writing a Boring Email—Send a Video

Tried, bored, and uninspired is no way to go through life.

Spice up your communication by replacing an email with a video message. Yes, we know this may seem daunting to some and you might object by saying, “There’s no way you can get me in front of a camera”. 

For the sake of this blog, try to imagine sending a personalized video message that not only captures your personality, but clearly communicates your message and impresses your recipient. 

Sounds pretty good right? So, let’s continue.

First, ya need a video email software

Covideo is a video email software for the professionals that enjoy shaking things up in their business practices. If you need to send video email free, Covideo allows anyone to sign up for a 14-day free trial—no credit card required. With the free trial, users can record with our video email app and video email chrome extension. Oh and that’s not all! Through the mobile app users have the ability to record, or upload existing videos, and send them out via text or email. As for the Covideo Chrome extension, anyone with the free trial can download the extension and record themselves, their computer screens, or both. Unlike other video email platforms, Covideo also let’s their users embed video in Outlook 365 email. Through the Covideo Outlook Add-in, users seamlessly record their videos within the Outlook desktop app, or add previously recorded videos from their accounts. Obtaining free video email for Outlook is easy when you sign up for a Covideo trial.

And of course, don’t forget to press record!

One of the reasons why learning how to record a video to send via email is so important is because communication is 93% nonverbal – which means that the look on your face matters just as much (if not more) than the words coming out of your mouth. Video email examples prove that video not only helps to show emotion, but it’s also easy to understand in a way that is also very convenient to receive on behalf of the people you’re speaking to.

These are all among the many reasons why video email platforms like Covideo are so important, too. You can quickly record a video using your webcam, on the Covideo mobile app, or even via your desktop computer. Then, you can make customizations to your video – like choosing a landing page where your video will play or adding clickable call-to-action buttons to direct viewers to take those important next steps.

Then, when you’re ready to send, you can send it via email using the Covideo video email Chrome extension, you can have it set to autoplay video in email and so much more. You can even send it via text or social media – the choice is truly yours. Keep in mind that when you embed video file in Outlook email, this increases engagement in a way that also entices viewers to click on your video when they open your email. The entire video doesn’t autoplay in the video email – only the first five seconds. So, once the recipient clicks on the video thumbnail, they will be redirected to a video landing page where your video is hosted. Truly, you’d be hard-pressed to find video email marketing services more powerful than that.
