3) Adding your Videos on your Email Marketing Campaign:
This is the most interesting way to promote your animated explainer videos. If you have an email list of your customers who prefer to receive a periodic newsletter from you, can send them newsletters containing your video. But you need to optimize the newsletter correctly. Make sure your newsletter is relevant. Use a relevant Subject for your email and also try to include the word “VIDEO” in your subject line. Adding the word “VIDEO” in the subject line can increase the chance that your customer will view the email.
Add some intro text in your email and then add an image (or animated GIF image) that will fit well with your videos. Then make sure to link that image with the link to your website where the customer can watch the video. Then send the email newsletter to your mailing lists. This can surely help to increase your website traffic as well as conversion.
