Emails are easy to manage. They help you get direct leads and you don’t have to spend hours on calls to make them feel convinced. Be direct with your customers and convince them through a single pitch. 

Although on the customer’s end, not everyone prefers to click open emails but a rather large number of US individuals prefer to check their mailbox first thing in the morning. So luck is always on your side. 

Wondering how you can use animated videos in your emails?

Another way through which you can abundantly distribute your video content is through your website’s blog page. Blogs are the main source of attracting your audience. No matter where you’re located, if you’re actively working in the online space, then blogs are a great way to engage & win the individuals. 

Blogs can tell your brand story. You can use animated videos to express the values of your brand. If not that then you can always integrate them in blocks of information in between your blog content. 

The best way to do so is to add a small description so you can allow Google to detect your video. And before you know it, your embedded animated video will start appearing on top of Google Searches.
