Benchmark Email Wistia Integration

Videos are engaging, and marketers know it. In fact, 87% of online marketers use video content. And with email being one of the most effective strategies out there, it makes sense for marketers and small businesses alike to incorporate videos into their overall marketing strategy.

If you're looking to add videos to your content toolkit, it's likely you've come across Wistia. Wistia is a video hosting platform. But, unlike YouTube, which is geared towards content creators, Wistia helps small businesses capitalize on creative video content to drive engagement and traffic back to their websites.

And boy does it. When you post your videos to Wistia, you can access specific information on audience engagement, which can then be used for email marketing campaigns and other marketing efforts.

Our Benchmark Email Wistia Integration makes bringing your Wisita leads into your email marketing efforts easy. Let’s see how our Wistia integration can benefit your business.

Why Use Wistia?

Still need some convincing on why Wistia is so great? We'll break it down for you.

Have Access To In-depth Analytics

A big part of any successful marketing platform is its ability to provide data and analytics on how your efforts are performing. Tracking progress and measuring ROI is essential if you want to know whether or not your audience loves your videos or if you need to change direction.

Wistia makes it easy for you to track these metrics. With its in-built analytics and video viewing data, you can measure your audience engagement by tracking the number of views and the amount of watch time you’ve racked up. You also have access to heat maps that show you which parts of your video hook your audience and which parts they skip.

Never Worry About Ads Again

If you've ever watched a video on YouTube, you're familiar with their usage of ads. Oftentimes in order to view a video, you have to sit through at least 15 seconds of an ad before being able to bypass it. This breaks up the flow for viewers and puts a barrier between them and the product or brand behind the video.

The great thing about Wistia is that it's ad-free. You can focus on creating compelling video series that your viewers will enjoy without distractions. With Wistia, you'll have their attention from the beginning of your video till the very end.

Boost Your SEO

Videos are a great way to boost SEO, and Wistia’s embedding processes result in an SEO-friendly video right on your company's site. Their embed codes are built to optimize the videos you create so they'll be easily found in search results.

Use Wistia's embedding processes to insert your Wistia videos on your website, and Google will index your web page, allowing you to enjoy all of the SEO benefits.
