Getting Started with Video Email – Part 4 of 5 – Lists

To help you get up and running with confidence and success, BombBomb created “Getting Started with Video Email,” an introductory webinar delivered every Wednesday at 12pm Eastern, 11am Central, 10am Mountain, and 9am Pacific. The goal was to teach you all the basics of the BombBomb video email marketing software, so you can start building relationships and growing your business immediately upon signing up.

This blog post includes part 4 of 5 – lists. Melody, BombBomb’s lead trainer, shows you how to import individual contacts or entire lists, then how to work with both contacts and lists. You’ll also learn about the suppression list, which includes opt-outs, invalids, and abuse complaints.

We record this webinar every few months and post it in sections here on the BombBomb video email blog. This allows you to see the webinar in part or in whole at your convenience. Use the links at the bottom of this post to access other sections

This recording was made on August 8, 2012. The software may look a slightly different today than on August 8, because we’re constantly tightening it up, adding functionality, and making a more simple interface. Still, watching this section will teach you all the basics of getting your email recipients into BombBomb and working with them over time.

How-To: Follow Up Quickly With People Based On Their Video Email Interaction

 

The BombBomb video email marketing software is a powerful sales and marketing tool.  Video email marketing helps you build trust and build relationships with your prospects, customers, colleagues, and community in a closed, targeted, and permission-based channel.

 

We’ve just added a simple feature that allows you to follow up quickly with people based on their specific interaction or engagement with your emails and video emails.

 

Email opens, link clicks, and video plays can be the basis for adding people to an existing list or as the foundation of an entirely new list!

 

 

How-To: Make A Segmented List of People Based On Their Interaction With Your Video Email

 

 

 

Screen Grab: Segment From Top of Email Performance Screen

 
From the “Emails” tab, click to “track” any one of your emails.  At the top, you’ll notice the “segment” link next to Opens, Clicks, and Plays.
 
When you click one of those text links, you’ll be able to add all the people who interacted or engaged with your video email in that way to an existing list or to create a new list of those people.

Screen Grab: Segment From Click Mapping Area of Email Performance Screen

 
Below the main tracking area seen in the screen grab above is the “click mapping” area for your email.  You can see how many times each link in your email got clicked.
 
When you one of the little black and white click mapping data boxes, you’ll get the same segmenting options – add those people to an existing list or create a new list of those people.

This new feature allows you to follow up quickly and easily with people specifically interested in your message, offer, or call to action in your email or video email.
 
The applications for this are many and varied.  It seems especially useful in a sales and prospecting situation.
 
As always, we love your feedback.  If you have anything to share with us about this feature – or about video email in general – simply contact BombBomb!

Faster Than Ever: Importing Your Lists of Video Email Contacts

 

Always hard at work, the developers who constantly bring improvements to our video email marketing software have significantly increased the speed with which your contact lists are imported.

There are two main ways to get the email addresses of people to whom you’d like to send video email into your BombBomb account.  One is to copy and paste up to 250 email addresses into an open field.  The other is to select and import an entire email list from a CSV file.  This post pertains to the latter – importing lists.

 

A CSV file is a basic spreadsheet format.  Most CRMs (like Salesforce) and most email clients (like Gmail) handle importing and exporting of contacts and email lists as CSV files.  It’s a “Save As” option in most spreadsheet software (like Excel).

 

Screen Capture: Adding Contacts To A List

To add contacts to your list, you may copy and paste email addresses into the open field or select and import an entire list from CSV file.

 

Our developers changed the process by which our system handles your CSV files.  The end result is a dramatic improvement in the speed of import.

 

We decided to test the difference with four simple lists.  Each had 3 fields: first name, last name, and email address.  The first list had 7,000 contacts; the other three had 700, 70, and 7.

 

We measured the time from the click of the “Import My CSV” button to the settling of the screen after a complete import.

 

Speed Test Results: Original List Import vs New List Import

Test results under the original list import scenario and the new list import scenario in the BombBomb video email marketing software.

 

Importing lists with more fields and custom fields will likely result in slower times than these.  Still, it will be dramatically faster than it’s been in the past, helping make you more productive.  Enjoy!
