Video builds credibility, and videos shared on LinkedIn receive 10x more exposure and shares than any other type of post.

For more insights on why using videos for sales is the best marketing strategy available, be sure to listen to this episode.
Great Sales Videos Should Include These 4 Components
A great sales video isn’t just a scripted advertisement. It’s a carefully crafted marketing tool that will lead to more brand exposure and a greater sense of trust with your market. I share 4 main components every sales video should include on this episode. Here they are.
- Warm, personal greeting (and closing)
- Identification of the problem your customer faces
- Explanation of additional resources available to them to solve the problem
- A call to action that pairs a solution with your company and theirs
You NEED to Combine Landing Pages with Video Marketing Tools
After you decide to use sales videos, the next step is to start pairing landing pages with your videos. These landing pages become resources that executives will share with their colleagues, and you can watch your views and click rates skyrocket. A great video landing page includes additional resources that pair with the video, clickable call to actions, your contact information and your company’s social media platforms. Solutions like OneMob exist to help you build these pages, so there’s no reason not to be using video in sales. To hear the full story behind landing pages and how they can drive the success of your sales videos, be sure to listen.
