We’ve already discussed the various benefits that come from incorporating video email marketing into your digital marketing strategy. Now you understand its importance. The next question is when you should incorporate videos in your email marketing if you want to see results.

Want to achieve the benefits? Then you shouldn’t just dive in and start adding videos to your emails. Not without prior thought as to why that particular email will benefit from a video.

If you don’t get your timing right you risk spamming your subscribers with irrelevant videos. Leading them to unsubscribe. Or your videos may just get overlooked. And so it won’t have the desired effects of an increased number of opened emails.

When Should You Add Videos To Your Email Marketing?

There are several times that have proven to be particularly suitable for introducing videos to your emails.

Such as:

1. When you’re introducing something new

Whether it’s a new line of products. A new service. Or even a new look for your brand. The introduction of something new presents a terrific opportunity to start incorporating videos into your email marketing. Whenever there is a new and exciting addition to your brand’s offerings, make sure that your customer base is aware of the new options.

You can focus on promoting the new product, or simply introducing a new way of doing things. Avoid videos that are too long or too bogged down with information. It’s much better to make a short “teaser” video introducing the novelties. Or have several different short videos that showcase different aspects of the products or services.

2. When you want to explain something

Tutorials are one of the most versatile and successful forms of video email marketing. Since our brains are much better at processing and retaining information that is delivered in a visual manner as opposed to a textual one, video is the perfect format to use when you want to explain a concept or process to your subscribers.

Including a video that presents all the relevant information in an effective yet still entertaining way will help your customers stay interested as well as gain a better understanding of the concept featured in your video. Video tutorials make up some of the most popular content across multiple video platforms and there is no reason why you shouldn’t include them in your email campaigns as well.

3. When you have something to celebrate
