Survey: 77% of People Benefit from Video Email, 20% Double Results

Last Updated October 2nd, 2015

BombBomb received survey responses from nearly 600 people about the big difference a simple video can make.

Top line: 77% of people reported a lift from video email compared to traditional, typed-out text emails. And 20% doubled or more than doubled their results with video.

Details below!


We’ve collected and shared hundreds of success stories over the past several years. In live presentations. In testimonial videos. Throughout the blog.

Specific success stories are awesome. They’re an honor and a pleasure for our team to hear and share. They’re helpful for people in the BombBomb community to see (everyone loves to see what other people are doing successfully).

To complement these success stories, though, we decided to get a broader look. As in: survey results that can be projected onto our video email sending community with 95% confidence and a 4% margin of error.

So, that’s what we did!
