HubSpot is always on the lookout to help their sales reps book more meetings. Recently, they empowered a select group of sales reps with personal video messaging, powered by Vidyard, and saw an increase in sales opportunities of more than 4x.
Ali Powell, a principal account executive at HubSpot, found that personalized video gave her a better way to show prospects that she was not just writing random emails to anyone and everyone who popped up on her CRM view. Ali was able to Get to a Yes or a No Faster, and thinks that all sales reps need to use video prospecting.
“We get to have many different types of conversations now through video, text, in-person meetings and conference calls; so our collective ability to build trust is increasing. Video is the next frontier when it comes to connectivity and building trust. It’s now part of the equation to building a strong sales and marketing engine,” says Hunter Madeley, Chief Sales Officer at HubSpot. “At HubSpot, we need to put the best sales tools into the hands of our sales reps so that prospects and customers will want to engage with us. Video helps reps create that genuine, personal trust that’s necessary for a financial transaction to play out.”
Terminus has been at the forefront of building a new category around ABM. They are in an emerging market and have many direct competitors, so they rely on their outbound sales prospecting team to find creative ways of standing out. To overcome this challenge, Terminus uses personalized video messages as part of their sales process. Video is one of the most creative ways they’ve been able to connect and share content with prospects. Using Vidyard integrated with SalesLoft, Terminus proves that it’s possible to see a 40% higher open rate, a 37% higher click rate and a 216% higher response rate on sales prospecting emails which represents more than triple their standard reply rate!
“Vidyard has become an important part of our sales DNA at Terminus. Since the beginning, we’ve been focused on personalization and we’ve been obsessed with finding creative and authentic ways to reach contacts at our target sales accounts,” says Tonni Bennett, Vice President of Sales at Terminus. “Using video as part of our sales process empowers our sales team to personalize their outreach in powerful ways because it puts a face right into email communications in what could otherwise feel like a cold outreach or sales process.”

Their video messaging app, Vidyard, is our secret weapon when it comes to keeping up in the ever-competitive world of marketing and sales,” says Kyle Norton, Vice President of Sales at League. “We’ve not only emerged as industry leaders in digital health, but we’ve increased our response rate by 3x by using Vidyard.”
PostBeyond helps organizations amplify their brand and increase revenue through social advocacy, empowering employees to share relevant company-approved content. As modern buyers have become more sophisticated and self-educated, PostBeyond’s sales reps have to work harder and harder to maintain trust with their prospects. Their sales reps have turned to personalized video selling to get noticed and build trust with customer’s prospects. Today, with spammy tactics and spray-and-pray messaging evaporating trust and killing a salesperson’s credibility, video helps the PostBeyond team add personalized video to their sales process. As a result, PostBeyond has developed and maintained strong credibility with customers throughout the sales funnel.
“As a salesperson, no matter how long your sales cycle, one of the most important things that you need to build with your buyer is trust. If someone doesn’t trust that you have their best intentions in mind, that you can help them solve their challenges, and that you are an expert in your field, they will not buy from you,” says Evan Lewis, Director of Enterprise Sales at PostBeyond. “At PostBeyond, we’ve been strategically leveraging video as part of our sales process. It’s been a game-changer in building trust, establishing authenticity, and strengthening relationships with our buyers to accelerate our sale cycles.”
