Here are some of the main questions and ideas we discussed in the podcast:
1. What are we talking about when we say prospecting using video and why should sales reps or founders listening care about it?
2. Why hasn’t video caught on the same way as other channels and is that what makes it such a compelling tool because it allows reps to, as you like to say, cut through the noise?
3. How should sales reps think about how video fits into their broader prospecting/outreach strategy?
4. When should sales reps incorporate video into their prospecting and outreach? Are there particular ICPs/buyer personas that this medium works particularly well with, or a particular step in someone’s outreach cadence?
5. Walk us through your tips for actually creating and sending a personalized video to a prospect.
6. How do you measure success/how to know if it’s working?
7. Do you have any tips for early-stage folks when it comes to leveraging video efficiently in their outreach?
8. Favorite tools/softwares to use for video?
9. Common mistakes people make when it comes to using video in their prospecting?
10. Any final thoughts, tips or tricks for folks to summarize?
