Think about all the email messages you receive every day trying to sell you something, from self-help books, courses, or the latest technology that you can probably live without, or maybe LinkedIn connection request. Through all this noise, there is a certain consistency: a lot of the same old, same old in the name of efficiency through automation. Sound familiar? That is why we have been shifting more of our critical communications with clients and potential customers to video emails. Now think about your messaging – from professional networking to interactions with recruiters or potential employers. If you are the only applicant using video emails, do you think that will help you stand out from your competitors? Would you like to know why more people aren’t using video emails? Because more people aren’t using video emails. But it is hard to get recognized in a crowd when you look like everyone else.
