Welcome to the year 2020, where all of us digital marketers, business leaders, and sales pros must agree on the following three statements:

  • If you're not using video as a core part of your content marketing strategy, you're doing it wrong.
  • If you're not using video on your website in specific and strategic ways, you're doing it wrong.
  • Finally, if you're not using video in your sales process, you're doing it wrong.

That's right, if you want to increase revenue through sales, as well as traffic and lead generation through your marketing efforts, you must absolutely and unequivocally embrace video. 

Period. Full stop.

Why you need video in your digital strategy

Now, there's a solid chance you read the three statements above and thought to yourself:

"Liz, you're a great gal — you've got moxie, you're a laugh riot, and you're an absolute whiz when it comes to wrangling commas. But right now, video sounds like a nice-to-have rather than a need-to-have in our digital strategy. Quite frankly, we've got bigger fish to fry."

As someone who has admitted... let's say a "distinct aversion" to being on camera in any way, shape, or form, I have two things to say to that:

  • I hear you, and I understand why you might feel that way — especially right now, when you can only focus on the activities and efforts that are proven beyond the shadow of a doubt to work.
  • You need to trust me when I say video is one of those "mission critical" initiatives for your business. I guarantee if you do video for sales and marketing the right way, you will see incredible results.

For example, here's a quick overview of how video is proven to shorten the sales cycle, so you can close more deals faster:

See? I wasn't kidding.

And, in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, video is now more important than ever to bring in-house as part of your digital sales and marketing strategy.

But how do you do it?

I'll be honest, I've always been frustrated by the lack of succinct, self-guided digital training options around video for sales and marketing. 

Well, until now, that is... 

Finally, a painless way to learn the right way to do video for your company
