Sales Techniques to Master Include Video

Many of the business transactions happening today don’t involve a lot of in-person interaction. Whether it’s due to distance or convenience, the phone, voice over IP, email, and now videos, are the norm for communicating with clients and prospects.

Getting over your fears and improving your video presence can help to boost your bottom line. People still want face-to-face time with you, and video is how you can give it to them without jumping on an airplane or taking an hour-long drive for a 20-minute conversation.

Austin says that scripting his messaging really helped him to gain confidence. Having an idea of what he wanted to say wasn’t enough for him to feel comfortable. With a script, the words were already put together for him to vocalize and record. During the training, he created a video he’s excited to send and said, “I’m actually pumped to use video now!”

Another thing you need to focus on is filling your profile with helpful resources–podcasts, whitepapers, blog posts, and others. Videos have also proven to be effective. Additionally, video messages are a great modern sales technique to connect with prospects.

Using Video to Connect with Prospects

According to Joël Le Bon, Ph.D., there are five common activities among survey respondents with the highest SSI scores. One factor is that they leverage video on their profiles. Videos help salespeople for a number of reasons, such as:
