Videos are becoming a powerful sales weapon in this particularly trying time when sales professionals want to establish trust with prospects and convert opportunities.
With the increase in the adoption of videos, especially in the email format, sales professionals are seeing a new way to bridge the gap of missing human communication and establishing a REAL™ (R – Relevant, E – Emotionally Engaging, A – Actionable, L – Lively) conversation with prospects. When social distancing impedes in-person demonstrations or contract negotiations, asynchronous videos serve as a perfect solution for demos, testimonials, and even for presenting reports.

They can help engage with more prospects in less time, can be personalized to stand out, can be easily integrated, and work as an excellent metric to track engagement. Through personalized videos created by Hippo Video, sales teams can achieve a productivity increase of up to 3x. That is why our customers love Hippo Video.”
