by TODD HARTLEY, on Oct 15, 2020 2:48:00 PM
40% of sales reps say that prospecting is the hardest part of the sales process. AND reps report that 21% of their day is spent writing cold emails - what a time suck.
The good news is that less than half of sales teams report using video as part of prospecting...now THAT'S what I call a COMPETITIVE EDGE!
There’s an art to ice-breaking in this new remote selling world. So, in this episode I explain how to use personalized video to generate more leads into your funnel, nurture and close them. And it’s not hard if you follow my steps.
Just pick up your cell phone, record a quick video, introduce yourself, provide relevant value and demonstrate your willingness to be helpful.
You can use personalized videos in emails, social media, and text messages, but the trick is to always add value into their universe first.
I also dive into an awesome article by Vidyard that touches on all the basics of video prospecting. I’ll talk about how to use video, how to eliminate time sucking emails, and how to write a good script.
