4. How To Add A Compelling Video To Your Sales Opportunity

As you know we provide a space to upload a video into your sales opportunity. While many companies opt to upload general videos that may already be found on your website, the most successful companies spend a little time recording a video that talks directly to the sales agent about the opportunity.

Your video doesn’t have to be fancy and can be easily made using a smartphone, high quality web cam or video recording camera. You want to ensure that you use a tone that’s directed at the sales rep and explains a bit about your company, sales opportunity and why your company would be a great choice for the rep to consider working with. It’s a really nice touch to add and will increase your success on CommissionCrowd.

Example of a great video aimed at sales agents:

Simply record your video, upload to YouTube or Vimeo (you can set as unlisted if you wish but not private) and then grab the URL and insert into your sales opportunity.
