Sales Video Examples to Get You Noticed

Sales pros tell us that it’s getting more difficult and taking more touches to break through to buyers. Your prospects’ inboxes are overloaded with messages that just don’t connect. If your outreach will get noticed, it needs to be relevant—and, even better, personal.

A sales pitch video is the next best thing to being there in person. Consider it your crowbar for breaking through inboxes. Sending a sales video email or a prospecting video via LinkedIn can get you more responses. It can also reduce how much inbox fatigue your prospects feel, meaning they’re more likely to retain more of your video message than a text-based one.

Best of all, video messages are easy. Just use a free screen and webcam recording tool to put together a quick video, then attach a creative and eye-catching video thumbnail.

But getting a prospect’s attention is only half the struggle. The other half is keeping that attention.

Video retains its value all the way through your sales cycle. It’s a huge help for following up on your initial touches, keeping the conversation moving, and driving your deals to close.

Let’s put the theory to work. Here are the best sales video examples for sales prospecting, follow-up, and deal closing.

The Best Sales Video Prospecting Examples

Video can be the cure if your cold call or traditional outreach doesn’t land. Prospecting with video messages creates a human connection that text just can’t replicate. It showcases your personality and demonstrates how much effort you put into your communication—elements prospects love seeing.

And it really works! 63% of sellers say that video gets more responses.

Let’s get started. Try these two video templates for cold outreach.

Cold Outreach Sales Video Example

In this template, SDR-turned-sales trainer Katherine Caldwell demonstrates how to make a quick video that can be embedded into a cold email to a prospect.

This template is perfect for introducing yourself to your prospect in a personal way that they’ll remember. You’ll call out some of the challenges the prospect might face, then explain how your product can help.

Sample Video Script for Cold Outreach

Intro: Hey {prospect’s name}! No idea how often you get videos like this, but I’m reaching out because I noticed you’re {prospect’s role} at {prospect’s company}.

Purpose: {mention a few challenges the prospect may face in their role or industry}.

Value: {Ask the prospect if they have considered a solution similar to your product/service to solve the challenges you pointed out}.

Call to Action: Let me know if this sounds interesting, I’d be happy to have a conversation and discuss more if this is something you are thinking about or have on your radar.

Thank You: Thank you, {prospect’s name}.

Cold Outreach LinkedIn InMail Video Example

This template by Salesloft shows you how to create a simple but effective video to augment your LinkedIn InMail connection requests.

Cold connection requests tend to get rejected out of hand…but prospects are way more inclined to hit ‘Accept’ when you send a quick, personalized video like this.

Sample Video Script for LinkedIn InMail

Intro: Hi {prospect’s name}, I’m {your name} from {your company name}.

Purpose: I just wanted to make you a quick video. I was going through your LinkedIn, I’d really love to connect.

Value: {Mention what specifically stood out to you and why you would like to connect with the prospect on LinkedIn.}

Call to Action: I really appreciate it and would love to connect.

The Best Sales Video Examples for Follow-Ups

Video messages aren’t just for prospecting! They’re a great way to follow up on both initial touches and big milestones.

After you make that crucial contact with a busy prospect, it’s easy for you and your product to fade from their memory. But when you send a quick follow-up video to remind the prospect of top takeaways and next steps, it’s much more likely that you’ll stay on their mind.

Try these two video templates for follow-up.

Pre-Meeting Reminder Sales Video Example

Another great template from Salesloft helps ensure that your prospect shows up to the meetings they booked. It’s a quick and easy video reminder that keeps them engaged and fans interested in attending.

For Jordan, the Salesloft rep you’ll see in the example below, sending this type of video slashed his no-show rates. Try sending it to a few prospects yourself to see what kind of effect it has on yours!

Sample Video Script for Pre-Meeting Reminder

Intro: Hi {prospect’s name}

Purpose: I just want to make you a quick video to let you know I’m really excited to connect with you {time and day of call}.

Value: I did include the Zoom link below, so go ahead and click on that link right before the meeting, and it’ll take you right into the Zoom room.

Call to Action: If you’re having trouble logging in, go ahead and give me a call on my cell phone, which is included in my email message.

Thank You: Looking forward to it, I’ll see you here shortly. Thanks!

Post-Discovery Call Sales Video Example

Star sales trainer Shari Levitin shares her favorite video template to send after a sales discovery call.

Her “information confirmation” video template summarizes the key info you learned on the discovery call, crystallizes the reasons why the prospect’s issues need to be solved, and presents the way that you and the prospect can move forward toward a solution.

It’s heartbreaking when a deal dies at this stage—but with this video template, you can keep your prospect in the loop and drive that deal forward.

Sample Video Script for Post-Discovery Call

Intro: Hi {prospect’s name}, great to talk to you {day of the week the conversation happened}.

Purpose: As a recap, {briefly summarize what you learned about the prospect}.

Value: {highlight 2-3 main challenges that the prospect is facing that you can solve}

Call to Action: So, what I have done for you is I have given you some {highlight some resources about your company and product/service your prospect can learn from and include links in the accompanying email}. I look forward to our follow-up {confirm the follow-up date and time}.

Thank You: Please feel free to ping me if you have any questions; again, we look forward to working with you.

The Most Effective Sales Video Examples for Closing More Deals

Pricing Comparison Sales Video Example

Another winning sales video example from Katherine Caldwell is perfect for warming your prospect up to your pricing structure before you have a formal discussion about it.

Outline the value of your product with a short, informative video. It’s a great point of reference for buyers to have and can be easily shared with the various stakeholders within the organization, which can help when you begin to negotiate.

Sample Video Script for Pricing Comparison

Intro: Hey {prospect’s name}! I just saw your email about scheduling some time to review pricing packages. I am happy to spend some time and book a meeting to discuss that with you.

Purpose: But I also thought it would be helpful to send you this quick video as it may answer all your questions. Feel free to share it internally. I know your {other stakeholders} will probably need to see this as well.

Value: I have pulled up the pricing packages here {demo the pricing packages on your screen}. As you can see, {provide details of the price and value they get for the price, compare and contrast what they get for different pricing levels}. {Emphasize any savings they can get}. {Recommend the package that you think is the best option for them}.
