Personalized email videos ensure relevance

Marketing automation technologies such as personalized emails engage the 4Rs:

  • The right content
  • The right format
  • The right time
  • The right form of communication

 

Engaged Customers Means Repeat Business

According to the Rockefeller Corp., it helps to keep customers, which costs five time less than recruiting new ones.  

 

A retained customer tends to become more profitable the longer you maintain the relationship.

Video Emails Get Results

  • Marketing automation technologies improve CTRs by an average of 14% and conversion rates by 10%, according to Aberdeen.
  • Explaining product assembly or service usage videos results in a CTR increase of 200% to 300%, according to Forrester Research.
  • Self-starting videos are expected and they provide you with a jump-start.
  • A well-crafted email video will finish with a personalized CTA prompting customers to share the experience and boost the brand.

 

Video Email Tips

  • Always make the video shareable for potential SEO effect and to boost the    brand
  • Embed the video on a landing page and set it to autoplay. Users expect to see    a video and this will prevent an extra click.
  • Shorter videos find 60% of viewers staying on the page at least 30 seconds. Pretty impressive when you consider that 17% of internet pages are looked at for less than 4 seconds!
  • Embedding a self-starting video in email requires no special software on the part of the viewer

 

According to Econsulting these additional tips help businesses see sales increases of 19%

  • Mentioning someones name in an email
  • Sharing information tailored to their needs
  • Access to exclusive events, coupons, and offers.

Personalized emails are more than a thank-you or recommendation for product related purchases: Omni-channel content delivery is that in which pertinent demographic, geographic and behavioral data is collected and integrated with images and graphics to create a one-of-a-kind message that can be delivered to each member of a targeted audience.
