People prefer to do business with people – we deliver You to your clients inbox!

Your email signature can be one of the most effective ways to let your potential clients see your video.

What are the benefits to adding a video email signature to your email?

For many businesses email has become the main form of communication with customers.
In the information age the necessity of face to face meetings have been declining and the mobile office has created a situation where very often business members and clients seldom meet.
It can be argued that the work place has become somewhat dehumanized.

 

However, people still prefer to do business with other people.

By adding a video to your email signature you instantly add back the warmth and reminder that your clients are doing business with a real person. This is a great boost for keeping you and the services/products that you offer at “top of mind” amongst your clients.

Adding your video to your email signature is a great opportunity to get hits for your Profile and other videos.

So why not make the most of this?
