Empowering Your Sales Team is Vital

As any director of sales, business owner, or CEO knows, empowering your sales team is vital to the success of your company. Even when you have the best sales team on the planet, people are still susceptible to human error. Video is a sales team that’s always available; it helps sell products when a sales person isn’t directly in front of a buyer. Sales videos consistently present your product benefits in the best light, require no training of personnel, and provide continuous information to any potential buyers that stumble across your product or service - helping you close deals quicker. While any video content can help your sales team out, we've found that product videos, testimonials, and training/customer success videos are the most effective tools for empowering your sales team and growing your business.

Mud Pie is a women's apparel, kid clothing, gift, and home decor company based out of Atlanta, Georgia.

Video Services: How to Increase Sales with Video Marketing

Shoppers are usually looking for a couple things - to 'use' the product or to learn more about it. Until virtual reality becomes more mainstream, your potential customers will unfortunately not be able to 'use' your product online. But that doesn't mean you should ignore these customers and carry on as usual - this means you should double down on finding creative ways to provide the same information that a customer would learn if they were standing there in front of you with the product in hand. 

Providing more sources, and types, of content that demonstrate your product or service allows your brand to influence the purchase decision through the on-going education of your customers. The best format for educating groups of online shoppers is, you guessed it, video. Video allows your customers to see and hear things that they may never have the ability to experience in real life. Check out how these local Atlanta firms are successfully implementing video into their marketing campaigns. Your brand can show off the product, the people who make it, and the passion and attention to detail that goes into creating it. Communicating this behind-the-scenes information to your online shoppers lowers the barrier of trust and reinforces the value that you are offering to them.  In less than a minute, you can create an educated customer that truly understands the value offering. In 2016, online shoppers are coming to expect these videos - photos of your products from a few angles just don't cut it anymore. A long term investment in video services is a long term investment in staying current. Your buyers want to see what it's like to use and how it fills a specific need for them. Remember, a picture may be worth a thousand words, but a video is worth 1.8 million (per minute).

  • Online video marketing is the advertising method of the future. Don't just take our word for it; see for yourself. Here are some compelling stats to back it up:

    • 64% of users are more likely to buy a product online after watching a video.

    • Videos embedded in emails increase the click-through rate by 200-300%. 

    • Including a video on a landing page can increase conversion by 80%.

Video is the number one way to drive emotion, and build trust online. Everyone has access to this information, yet only 22% of small businesses focus any portion of their marketing budget on video. Due to the relatively few businesses that are currently taking part in this revolution, implementing video marketing as the forefront of your comprehensive strategy will give you a serious advantage over your competition.

  • By leveraging video marketing for your products you'll be able to educate with product demonstration videos, bring in buyers with product line overviews, and raise support with crowdfunding videos. Your company should always consider making these three types of videos available to your customers when launching a new product, as these are some of the most effective marketing tools that you can take advantage of throughout your campaign.
