Let’s say you have someone opt in to receive a video training. After opting in, you would send them to a page with your video on the page. Once they start watching the video, you can send them emails based on how much of the video they actually consumed.

It would look something like this:

You would send 3 separate emails – one for those who watched the full training video, one for those who watched half of the video, and one for those who watched a quarter of the video.

If they watched the full video, you can send them an email unlocking additional bonuses, for example. If they only watched half or a quarter of the video, you can send them an email pushing them to continue watching by enticing them with snippets from the later part of the video.

Here’s what it would look like in your marketing automation platform:

Someone would fill out your form, and you would send them a series of emails with links to go watch the video. PlusThis will give you special links to include in your emails, and a special embed code for your page so you can start tracking the videos. Then, your marketing automation platform would complete the follow up according to how much of the video was consumed.

Setting this up in PlusThis is super simple. You would first paste your video embed code in PlusThis. Next, you would specify the times in your video where you would want tags applied. You would specify those tags, and PlusThis will know that when contacts reach that point in your video, to apply the tag in your marketing automation platform. Lastly, PlusThis will give you an embed code to put on your page (website, ClickFunnels page, etc.). 

This is what it looks like in PlusThis:

As you can see, setting this up only takes minutes and is super valuable to not only gain insight into your marketing and video consumption, but also follow up with contacts accordingly.
