Texting videos is a high-converting method for following up with prospects. However, it needs to be done correctly.
Texting a cold prospect as a first touch is not advisable. According to recent statistics, while texting in the sales process can lead to conversion gains of more than 100%; sending text messages before establishing contact with a prospect can adversely affect both contact and conversion rates.

The reason is that people want to give their permission first to contact them.
Texting is more of a personal connection than email. Thus, texting videos to cold leads transmits that it’s all about you, and not them.
Once you establish your first connection and follow-up with a video text message, text messages have an incredible 98% open rate and a 45% response rate.
Personalized Video Text Messages
While sending text messages in general achieves these statistics, using personalized video messages can help to quickly build trust and authority with your prospects - something that is difficult with standard text messages.
With Vaetas Connect, our follow up video text messages, as well as follow up emails increased the conversions to 99% when the messaging was correct.
The free Vaetas Connect actionable “Video Recording Toolkit” demonstrates how to create high converting video messages without needing to write or read a script.
It helps you to sound more natural and your message connects with your viewers. This is because your message is all about them and not you.

Viewer Engagement and Conversions
However, it’s important to understand that there are two parts to using video for your prospecting and follow-up campaigns – viewer engagement and conversions.
Our Vaetas Strategy
Higher Viewer Engagement + Fewer Viewer Action Steps = More Leads and Sales
Maximum Viewer Engagement
Increased viewer engagement is accomplished when your personalized message is “all about” the viewer and how you can help them.
Sending a message that is “all about you” rarely converts. Good viewer engagement determines the response rate.
Conversions are when the viewer takes your next desired action step to respond. This can be cumbersome for most texting apps that send videos.
They do a good job of sending your video text messages, however they usually require viewers to go to a landing page to watch the video.
Some will place a call-to-action button on the page. However, when the video opens to play, the viewer has to close it to get back to the page.
