Record and Send Video Mail
Communicating across distances is easier than ever before. There’s email, phone calls, video chat — and now video mail. If you’ve ever wanted to combine the directness of an email with the visual communication of a video call, then video mail is for you. With video mail, also known as video email, you can send personalized video messages over email. This is especially useful for sales, marketing, and customer service teams as video mail makes your emails stand out with personalized visual messages. Video email software simplifies this process by letting you embed video in email directly, so you don’t have to worry about large attachment files.
Let’s go over the benefits of video mail, along with information on how to email a video, so you can start to send video by email today!
Video Mail Use Case: Video Email Marketing
Not sold on video mail yet? Let’s talk statistics. According to Covideo, adding personalized videos to your email marketing campaign increases open rates by 19%, click-through rates by 65%, and response rates by a whopping 200%! As such, video email marketing is a great way to reach more customers and improve your brand’s outreach and visibility.
The best video email template campaigns include personalized messages for clients. Start your video by writing your client’s name on a piece of paper or whiteboard and hold it up at the beginning of your video. This way, when they open your email, they’ll immediately be drawn to their name, increasing the chance they click on and watch your video. In your video’s message, make it clear that you are conscious of your client’s particular needs. Other best practices include using the word “video” in the email subject line, keeping videos short and to the point, and creating videos that match your marketing goals. For example, are you hoping to catch a new customer’s interest or secure the continued support of an old client? Be aware of both your company’s needs and the needs of your customers in your message.
Some video email marketing examples include personal invitations to an upcoming event, a visual showcase of new product features, or an individualized update on company news. Regardless of your use case, be sure to use the best video email marketing software so that you can embed video mail directly into your emails and track open and view rates.
How to Attach a Video to an Email
Of course, you may wonder why you need a separate video email platform to conduct video mail campaigns. Can’t you just attach a video to an email as a file? The problem with this method, however, is that most email services have strict file upload limits. For example, you can only send up to 25 MB in attachments on Gmail. You could upload a video to a cloud storage platform, such as Droplr, then send a link to the upload, but this adds in an extra step for the message recipient, who may be wary, or less willing to click on a link to another site to view the message.
Overall, the easiest way to send video mail is to embed the video directly in the body of the email. With Covideo, you can record a video, then send it to your customer as an embed. You can embed video in Outlook email, Gmail, and CRMs such as Mailchimp, Salesforce, Hubspot, and more! Covideo will not autoplay video in email, but your videos will appear as a thumbnail in the message. You can also set an animated GIF of the first 5 seconds of the video to autoplay in the email. Once the recipient clicks on the email, they will be redirected to a branded video landing page that can include Call-To-Action buttons such as “reply”, “set up an appointment” or “click here for more information”.
