If you feel like your cold outreach is getting ignored in the digital clutter, or you’re struggling to make personal connections with your clients, this is the episode for you. This week, I had the pleasure of chatting with a dear friend of mine, Ethan Beute. Ethan is the Chief Evangelist at BombBomb, the host of my favorite podcast, The Customer Experience podcast, and the author of several amazing business books.
Ethan and I had an in-depth conversation about how we can use technology to rehumanize our communication with prospects and customers. More specifically, we dove into the power of video and how we can use a platform like BombBomb to build trust, alleviate confusion, and convey emotion when reaching out to clients. Ethan shares his tips for using video at impactful moments along your customer journey and how to implement these practices at scale.
