Katherine Caldwell had much success leveraging video prospecting when she was an SDR. She branched out into the official world of sales training and now heads up Katch Consulting and created her video prospecting program that’s helped countless sales pros book an extra two-to-three meeting per week.
The templates Katherine has shared will help book that initial meeting for SDR or BDRs, but later-stage video templates will help keep the deal moving forward to close.
These three sales video template examples created by Katerine Caldwell are designed to help you book that first meeting, quickly explain the difference between pricing options, and even nudge the deal to close in the latest stage of the process.
You can use this template to introduce yourself to your prospect in a personalized and memorable fashion and highlight some possible challenges the prospect might be facing and how your product or service can help, based on the research or sales discovery you’ve done.
This template lets prospects get warmed up to your pricing before you chat live. You can outline the value of paying for your product or solution. Use this template to deliver a short, informative video walking through your pricing structure before your call.
Have a deal that is supposed to close next week, but the final decision maker couldn't attend your wrap-up meeting? Remove the chances of your deal stalling and send a video that everyone can watch when it’s most convenient for them. Use this template to tie up loose ends and answer any outstanding questions from the final decision-maker.

Katherine’s advice for using any of these sales templates is to keep your tone conversational. Your authenticity will come through, and you’ll be more likely to make a connection.
Katherine also recommends using a framework when starting with video for sales. Her basic framework includes—introduction, observation, problem, solution, and call to action. It’s knowing what you want to say and in what order and adding in plug-in personalization where applicable.
It may seem counterintuitive, but once you’re comfortable, ditch the framework! After you’ve recorded and sent 10-15 video messages, you’ll find your voice and style, which will come naturally to you.
For the cold outreach video, aim to keep it close to a minute in length and really look to emphasize the prospect’s challenges before you jump right into selling. A webcam or selfie-style video works great here. Make sure your background is clean and uncluttered.
Pricing comparisons require a little explanation, but you should still aim to keep it short and to the point—under two minutes. You want to give enough information that the prospect can start to think about which package works best for them, but also encourage them to ask more questions and work through or confirm the best solution synchronously on your next call or communication. Because you’re trying to show and tell, a screen share video works best for this template.
For the late-stage video template, look to keep it under 60 seconds. A selfie-style video would work here, but to emphasize your points extra, try a cam + screen recording so you can illustrate the questions you answer as you speak.
Using a tool like Google Slides or Canva for your screen recording videos can add an elevated design element to your content and give you that extra polish and professionalism in your video message.
And Katherine’s final advice on getting started with video for sales? Don’t wait for the perfect moment to start; just start!
The awesome thing about these templates is that they cover the entirety of a buying cycle. As the first touch to a prospective buyer, the outbound sales team can leverage the cold outreach template; account managers or executives can use the pricing package mid-funnel to help the buyer find the best solutions for their needs. And the late-stage deal template can act as that gentle reminder to the buyer to get the deal done.
Below are the video scripts for each of the three video sales templates covered above for you to use with your prospects.
