What is a video voicemail and how to make it

And, strictly speaking, personalized voicemails are just emails with a video attached. That's the point: if you're a marketing manager performing so-called "cold calls", it's the best way to get your mail open, not moved to the bin.

Don't forget that you must call the person by their name, so each video voicemail should be recorded separately.

A hint! If you're planning a mailout, record one "main body" and several "introductions" and "conclusions", each with a separate personal appeal. It will save you time significantly.

Luckily, our video editing tool can help you with that and much more.
