part1 Benefits of Video Emails over Traditional Emails

Compared to traditional emails, video emails can be beneficial in several ways, including the following:

• Effectiveness

Ideally, video emails are just more effective to get your message out there. It has been observed that video emails can drive sales around 300% more than traditional emails and their opening rate is also better.

• Personal

Compared to reading a textual email, watching a video is certainly a whole lot personal. People would like to watch a video instead of reading as it can be more engaging and entertaining.

• Informative

Chances are that you would need to write a lot of text in your emails to explain something to your audience. On the other hand, even a 30-second product demo video can provide more information to your audience than a lengthy email.

• Uniqueness

Most importantly, it makes your emails stand out from their inbox (among hundreds of textual emails). The best part is that videos can also be watched on smartphones without any technical issues.
