Why Video Is An Amazing Sales Tool

In YouTube, one of the popular channels when it comes to sales tips and training is Jordan Belfort’s “Wolf of Wall Street” channel. Here he has a plethora of videos on the topic of sales and marketing.

It’s also not surprising that he employs video marketing to get his message out. It’s the perfect way to display his sales techniques.

According to Belfort, here are the top three tools for a salesman:

  • Words being said
  • Tonality
  • Body language

In the video above, I talk about these three things and why it’s not a surprise that video is an amazing sales tool.

In a video, a speaker can control the words being said. The words help get the message out. They also convey what a business or product or a brand is all about.

But words aren’t enough. If it were, then simply reading a sales script would make a great telemarketer. 

This is simply not the case. The words aren’t just important, but also how they are said. Does the person speak in a monotone, Ben Stein voice? Or does the person speak in a confident tone

Tonality allows the speaker to build instant rapport with the other person. Most people have only 4-5 seconds to make an impression. If you deliver your first words in a Ben Stein voice, you can forget about establishing yourself as an expert in your field.

To build confidence when selling, you need to speak confidently.

Finally, there is body language. Human beings are judgmental. Even though most people say it’s not proper, human beings judge others based on appearance or the “cover of a book.”

If you slouch, then you appear less confident and lesson your chances of a sale, while a confident person has a straight posture.

Video is a powerful medium for sales because it’s a medium where a speaker can control all three aspects – words, tonality and body language.

This is why Jordan Belfort uses video extensively to preach his beliefs. As a salesman, he understands he can use all the tools of a great salesman in a video.

And this is why business owners ought to use video for their marketing. It is the most effective way to tell the world about their brand.
