Increase Email CTR by 300% By Incorporating Video Into Emails


Ready to revamp your email marketing strategy with something that actually grabs attention in this digital chaos?


Let's talk about why incorporating video into your emails isn't just a nifty trick—it's a crucial pivot to stay relevant and boost engagement. For the fierce female entrepreneur running a product-based ecommerce business, it’s time to transform those standard newsletters into something spectacular.






I. The Power of Video in Email Marketing


Did you know that emails with videos can improve the click-through rate by a whopping 300% (Campaign Monitor)? Yeah, you read that right! It’s a game-changer. Major players agree—video email outperforms text-based email, giving those who use it a statistical advantage (Vidyard, 2023).



II. Understanding Your Audience


This isn't about shooting in the dark. It's about striking the bullseye by understanding who you’re talking to. Here’s how:


Analytics Are Your BFF: Dive into those numbers! What do they love? When do they buy? Use this data to craft content that sings to their soul.


Segment Like a Boss: Tailor your video content by segmenting your email list. Personalized emails aren’t just nice—they’re necessary.


You should already know your target audience extremely well, but this takes it a step further: you need to know their consumption preferences, dislikes, and habits.





III. Types of Videos to Enhance Your Email Campaigns


Here’s where the fun begins. Spice up your emails with these killer promo video ideas for products:


How-To Guides: Teach them something valuable. How to style your product, how to maximize its use, or how to keep it looking brand new.


Product Showcases: Make your product standout as the star! Highlight its benefits and how it solves problems—real problems that your real audience faces.


Behind-the-Scenes: Pull back the curtain and show the human side of your brand. People love to buy from those they feel connected to.


Customer Testimonials: Nothing beats seeing a real person rave about your product. It’s genuine, it’s persuasive, and it is one of the most affordable and best performing ways to promote your business.

IV. Best Practices for Creating Engaging Video Content


Lights, camera, action! But hold on, make sure you’re following these tips to really make your video content marketing shine:


Keep It Brand Aligned: Your videos should scream 'you' at every second. Consistency breeds familiarity—and trust. Here’s how to create videos that align with your brand identity to maintain consistency.


Technical Savvy: Don’t let poor lighting or bad sound ruin your masterpiece. Small tweaks can lead to big gains.



V. Integrating Videos into Email Campaigns


You’ve made a great video. Now, make sure it gets the spotlight it deserves in your emails:


Thumbnail Magic: Use a captivating thumbnail to increase click-through rates. Sometimes it’s all about that first visual impression.


Optimize for All Devices: People open emails on their phones, tablets, laptops—you name it. Make sure your video looks good on all of them.





VI. Crafting Compelling Email Copy Around Your Video


Your video’s only part of the puzzle. The words you choose to surround it with? Just as crucial.


Subject Line: Include the word "video" for a 7% increase in open rates (Social Media Week).


Spark Curiosity: Don’t just tell them what’s in the video. Make them want to click. Tease, entice, and engage.


Strong CTAs: Tell them exactly what you want them to do after watching the video. Be bold, be clear, be compelling.


Make sure you frame your video with excitement so your readers will want to hit play!





VII. Measuring the Success of Video Emails


Remember, the only way to truly know if it’s working is to check the data:


Key Metrics: Look beyond opens and clicks. How long are they watching the video? Are they sharing it?


Iterate and Improve: Use what you learn to make each campaign better than the last.



VIII. Overcoming Challenges with Video Email Marketing


Not everything will be a walk in the park. Here’s how to handle some common hurdles:


File Sizes: Keep an eye on your video file sizes to avoid email bloat. Nobody likes a slow-loading email.


Legal Mumbo-Jumbo: Stay compliant with email marketing laws. Yes, it’s not the sexiest part of marketing, but it’s essential.





IX. Advanced Strategies and Tools


Once you’ve got the basics down, it’s time to level up:


Automation Tools: Use tools to schedule and optimize sends. Your time is precious—let tech help.


Future Trends: Keep an eye on what’s next. Video email marketing is always evolving. Stay ahead, stay relevant.
