Sebastian Deans & Olivia Riches – Use Video To Boost Sales Pipeline

As more companies are lured by the reported benefits of using video in their sales process, video usage is becoming mainstream in many sales teams. 

Depending upon which research you believe response rates to cold outreach messages can be as high as 60%, click-through rates on emails with video can be 300% higher than emails with non-video. 

But, as a fringe activity performed by a few sales reps becomes an official part of the sales process, companies need to be more organised in how they encourage adoption, support quality activity and coach for continual improvement. 

But as with any new sales tool, sales leaders have lots of questions about to integrate a new approach into their existing process.
