When should you send an email with video content in it?

Often. As often as you can possibly include a video that fits with the content and message of the email. Studies have shown that adding videos to email blasts can increase click-through rates by 30% or more. That’s a huge bump in click through rates!

Video is useful in emails for one reason: we love watching videos. Certain studies have shown that people prefer to watch videos over reading about a product or service at a rate of four to one.

If you’re using video content in your email blasts, make sure to consider compatibility. Individual email systems don’t work well with video playback. You can combat this by adding an image link back to your website and the video – if you find customers struggling to play the video in your email.

An easy way improve your email marketing is to create a great video for your company, add it to your email campaign, and then include the word “video” in the title of the email.

That’s it! By doing so, you’ll increase your opens by nearly 20%, your click-through rates by 65%, and even reduce your unsubscribes by a fourth or more. That’s a huge impact from one little word.
