“Leverage Online Video Marketing When Networking” Transcript by Online Video Marketing Expert
You can use your content video series in your networking process to gain credibility as an expert and speed up your sales cycle. Find out three things you can start doing to leverage content videos when networking, coming right up.
If you have a content video series channel on your website, You Tube or a platform like our BizTV Shows, you can leverage those videos when you are networking. Here are three ways to do that:
First, include the link to your video series on your business card that you give to prospects when you meet them at a networking meeting. Make sure to say something like – I provide tips to help others like you grow their business (or whatever it is that you do)…I provide tips to help others like you grow their business in my free video series…use the link right here on my card to check it out, there may be a tip or two that apply to you.
If you are scheduling a one on one with someone provide a link to your video series in the email you send them. If you have a link to your video series in your email signature – which I highly recommend – then in the email you can say something like – to learn more about how I help my clients be sure to check out my video series using the link provided in my signature below.
And finally, if you have strategic partners that you work with to pass referrals back and forth, educate them on how to properly position you through the use of your video series. Have them share the link to your content when they are making e-introductions or talking with your ideal clients.
When your ideal client, based on your suggestion or a suggestion from a strategic partner, goes to review your video series, you are about 60% more likely to get their business and it speeds up your sales cycle, because they get a feel for you through your videos. They already know and like you!
So be proud of your video content and share it as part of your networking process.
We are expanding BizTV Shows to other metropolitan areas – if you are interested in starting a network in your area, please visit our website at www.biztvshows.com.
