- It's easy. With only a webcam and a laptop, you can record engaging video-narrated presentations and product demos that bring content to life.
- It's social selling and content marketing—all in one. Use personalized video pitches in your social selling efforts with just a click. Automatically email those same video presentations to individual prospects or bulk lead lists.
- It's instantly gratifying. Integrated analytics automatically tell you who opened your presentation, how long they viewed it and if they want to learn more. Simply click to add that activity to Salesforce.com and follow up on the lead.
- It accelerates time-to-close. Because prospects can immediately jump from a recorded video message into a live virtual demo or meeting, you move deals through the pipeline faster.
