Use Interactive Video as a Lead Generation Tool. Ask the viewer for their contact information before the video starts, at a specific time, or on a specific interaction.
For any company looking to increase its sales, lead generation plays a critical role in ensuring you’re talking to the right customers.
Traditional video content, while effective, doesn’t allow you to engage with your consumers as an interactive video would. You are restricted to the content provided in your video and aren't able to collect any information other than metrics such as views and completion rate.
However, using interactive video as a lead generation tool allows you to take your video content to the next level by capturing valuable information about your viewers to be used for future targeted nurturing.
Benefits of using interactive video to capture leads
- Gather insight into where your viewers are in the sales funnel: While traditional videos only allow you to present information to your viewers, interactive videos give you better insight into the mind of the consumer by having them take part in the conversation, too. This can be through answering questions or clicking interactive elements to understand your users' wants and needs by way of their response. This way you’ll know exactly what they are looking for when you reach out to them as a sales prospect.
- Personalize the experience: Consumers respond best to marketing messages that cater to their needs and motivations. In fact, 72% of consumers say they only engage with personalized content. By capturing data within your videos you’re able to personalize the experience by displaying targeted messages throughout your video that increases viewer engagement and further enhances the relationship between you and your contacts
- Connect with CRM data integrations like HubSpot or Salesforce: By syncing the data you collect within your videos to your CRM platforms, you can create a more effective and targeted marketing strategy for future outreach opportunities.
