So let’s discuss how companies or individuals can incorporate video communications into their overall marketing strategy, and be prepared to capitalize on this growing trend of video marketing on the internet.
Today there are hundreds of Email Marketing services such as Constant Contact, iContact, MailChimp, to name a few of the leading competitors for Email Marketing. Video Email is a relatively new option in the marketplace, and only 1 out of 100 People has ever watched or viewed a Video Email. Herein lies the opportunity both as a small business for branding purposes, as well as for Video Email providers that are first to market.
Here are A Few of the Leading Competitors in the Video Email market space:
- MailVU– They offer recordings of up to 10 Minutes, an address book, and a few options for $39.95 a month.
- EyeJot- It seems to be free, but the quality isn’t the best, recordings are limited to one minute, and very limited options. I wouldn’t recommend using this service at all, but if you’re on a budget, it may be a decent fit.
- BombBomb- BombBomb has several options as well, and though I haven’t used some of these services, I wanted to place the links up for you to do your due diligence and research some of the top competitors out there for video email. BombBomb has a free version, and one that starts at $35 a month for over 500 Contacts.
- Talk Fusion- This is the service I use so I’m more familiar with it, and it has more features than the competition by far. They offer 8 Products total including Video Email, Video Conferencing, Live Broadcasting, Video Share for social media marketing, Email Opt-In Forms (Like Aweber or GetResponse), and much more for $35 a month. They have an email only option for $20 per month, both come with 100o Contacts included, which is similar to most text email marketing companies. Talk Fusion even makes Custom Designed Templates that include your Company Logo, Pictures, and Slogan that will help you brand yourself more effectively. That said, Talk Fusion is a worthy choice for Video Email, and has a great income opportunity to go along with it if want your family, friends and business partners to be able to communicate via video email.
Applications for Video Email and Talk Fusion
2. Sending video by email helps you build trust and credibility with your customers or potential customers. Ever noticed that by watching a couple of videos from someone you feel like you “know them”?
3. Sending video by email will help a business build customer relationships. With video you can effectively look into your customers’ eyes and engage at a level that is not possible with normal text only email. Businesses can develop a far greater connection with the company than they could from a faceless black and white text email.
4. Visuals help get a message across and studies show information retention rates are significantly higher with visuals. Studies have shown that people only retain 10 percent of what they hear but 50 percent of what they see – a 400 percent increase!
5. Improved customer retention rates: People are far more loyal to a brand or company they trust and feel connected to. It is far easier to sell to an existing customer than it is to find a new customer. Sending video by email will help solidify that relationship.
6. Increased engagement time: Studies have shown that over 60% of people will watch a video to conclusion.
7. Increased brand awareness also increases the likelyhood that a customer will recommend your product or service, potentially reducing advertising costs. Word of mouth is still the best form of advertising.
