More and more case studies are being published on how online video content marketing is driving action to improve conversion across all points of the sales cycle, from getting found on search engines to providing information on what distances your company from the competition and closing the sale.
If you are selling into enterprise-level clients, you know that there is more of a diverse set of busy decision makers out there than ever before. With decision makers having access to a ton of information and the ability make their own assessment in the buying process, keeping all the decision makers engaged enough so you can navigate and overcome any objections is the key to winning more deals.
A Forbes Insight Study reveled that 59% of C-level decision makers prefer video to reading text because it helps them make deeper connections with your company and better understand your product/service, team, and value propositions. However, most salespeople still use white papers, case studies, websites, and other pieces of paper. Because paper does not provide a personal connection, it is no wonder that decision makers don’t “have time” to sift through the information your marketing department spent so much money on. Therefore, decision makers may not be educated on how your company and solution can support their business objectives.
Because online video content marketing reaches out, informs, and builds trust with your customers more quickly, more easily, and more effectively than any other marketing medium, a well thought-out plan for using online video marketing content in your enterprise deals will differentiate your organization and give you a competitive edge to drive sales.
Here are a few areas for your organization to get started using online video marketing in your enterprise-level sales process.
Just like 10 years ago when you needed a website, businesses of all sizes (note that small businesses have the most to gain from the efficiency of online video marketing) will soon need professional video marketing content to drive their messaging. Marketing with online video for larger corporations can support their sales teams with content that differentiates them in all parts of the sales process.
What paper is used the most? Look at your company’s brochures, product specs, case studies, and white papers. These are widely used in the sales process and can have a greater impact when used in web video content marketing. Keep customers engaged and win the deal!
Who makes your company the best? Enterprise buyers know that salespeople only represent the team that will be implementing the solution. Arm your sales team with video marketing content that allows these buyers to connect with your team, from your technicians and project managers to support and operations. Get them to connect personally with your team and win more deals!
What do you find your sales team repeating? An Invodo webinar reported that 66% of buyers watch product informational-intensive videos two or three more times, which means they are going back multiple times to get more information to make informed purchase decisions. Get customers better informed and win the deal!
What is easy to show but difficult to explain? You have product/service information on your website…simply and professionally present your products and services with video production just like you do every day! You are the expert. Show your stuff and win the deal!
Post presentation objection handling. Record answers to the top three objections your customers have. Let your clients know that you understand and have dealt with their kinds of problems before and that your products or services have been created for them. This will build trust and credibility without directly selling to win more deals.
Thank-you videos. Send a thank-you video after every meeting. Remind customers about your value propositions and insert testimonials from other clients to win more deals.
Simply put, online video marketing content is a useful, everyday tool that provides your sales team with innovative sales materials that distance your products’ and services’ business value and add excitement to the buying experience.
Getting started sooner will distance your organization from the rest by giving your clients easy-to-consume content that they will enjoy, thus giving your company a competitive advantage.
