SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ClearSlide, the leading platform for sales and marketing success, today launched ClearSlide video mail, a new feature integrated into ClearSlide's award-winning email app for iOS, that enables sellers and marketers to easily record, send and track highly engaging, personalized videos to customers via email within minutes.
ClearSlide video mail cuts through customers' inbox clutter with customized, branded videos that boost email open rates by 60 percent and increase conversion rates by over 20 percent. With ClearSlide video mail, there's no fumbling with complicated recording equipment or struggling to find appropriate content. ClearSlide video mail provides a fast and effortless way to increase open rates, grow lead conversion, and accelerate sales cycles with engaging video content that plays without a glitch on any device.
"Sellers and marketers are desperate for innovative ways to engage customers with relevant content. Voicemails are routinely ignored and automated or generic emails are often trashed immediately," said Raj Gossain, vice president of products with ClearSlide. "The ClearSlide video mail feature of CS Mail provides a unique - and proven - approach to building immediate connections with customers through personalized videos that are as easy to create as your iPhone or iPad is to use."
ClearSlide video mail is ideal for engaging with both prospects and existing customers throughout the sales cycle. Some example use cases include:
- Prospecting into new target accounts with personalized break-in videos.
- Put a face to a seller's name using an introductory message before a first meeting.
- Send a greeting from senior executives to reinforce the proposal and demonstrate commitment.
- Welcome new customers as part of the onboarding process and introduce them to their support team.
- Share product updates with internal teams and customers.
- Improve sales readiness by personalizing messages from marketing and product management.
ClearSlide video mail makes sending personalized videos simple, fast and scalable. With just a few taps within the ClearSlide Mail app, sellers and marketers can record professional-quality short videos in seconds, preview, and then send the clip embedded as a link or attached to an existing presentation. Using pre-built background templates or by choosing their own backgrounds, users can also overlay a small banner with their name and company to further personalize. Once video mails are sent, instant alerts provide up-to-the-minute metrics on customer engagement for each video clip.
"ClearSlide video mail is differentiated with built-in tracking that enables sellers to measure video mail open rates, viewing statistics, and even see if the video was forwarded on and to whom," said Gossain. "ClearSlide customers are already seeing dramatic boosts in email open and conversion rates that are a game-changer for their selling efforts."
Videos are automatically stored in the ClearSlide video library, where they can be re-edited, shared or appended to new or existing presentations. The entire library and the video mail creation interface is accessible directly within the ClearSlide Mail app, giving sellers and marketers the most advanced feature set for customer engagement that wraps email, content access and creation, contacts and calendaring together in the most comprehensive, all-in-one sales productivity app.
