8 Ways Video Fits into an ABM Strategy

Video for Cold Outreach

Video helps your cold outreach stand out against all the other text-based emails in your prospect’s inbox.

When you create a custom video message for cold outreach to a key account decision-maker, make sure always to showcase your knowledge of the account and its business. Try only to share content relevant to what you know they’re interested in. Video analytics are helpful for this because you can track every view to score the account further.

Video Email Nurtures

The purpose of a video email nurture campaign is to release a series of emails to a subscriber or prospect based on their behavior with your other assets, whether that’s marketing content, website interactions, sales conversations or ads.

A video email nurture can drive higher engagement scores than text-based emails.

Retargeting Accounts with Videos

When using a video email nurture, you can launch retargeting ads at leads who hit a specific view threshold in your nurture. Retargeting ads are then shown to people who are already a contact in your database or have visited your website. Meaning, if they engaged with you before, they will now receive targeted ads for your business on websites and social media sites like Facebook and LinkedIn.

The retargeting ad structure ensures you’re showing the best type of content to the right audience at the right time and not burning significant ad dollars on leads that are too cold to convert.

Account-Level Personalized Video

Instead of the one-to-one approach, you can reach multiple recipients across one account with an account-specific personalized video. It still feels personal but can save a ton of time. By addressing a specific account pain point, you can increase engagement at scale while maintaining white-glove treatment. Plus, if you’re using an enterprise video platform, viewer analytics will let you know who watched and for how long.
