  • How to launch your modern LinkedIn lead gen agency: Video prospecting

    B2B acquisition has changed aggressively in the past 3 years. The traditional text-based outreach on LinkedIn is losing effectiveness because of massive automation campaigns and poor AI usage.

    Open rates are declining, and answer rates are, too, but many people have adopted a new approach: Video prospecting.

    The only challenge here is that the lead gen will always need some volume, and volume means effort.

    Still, video production is costly and time-consuming, but when you know that video messages increase response rates by a staggering 26% compared to their text-based, it’s a must to integrate this into your strategy.

    Many people are camera-shy or don’t have the time to create personalized videos for each prospect.

    So here lies the solution: Combine a 1-time video recording with deepfake generation of the personalized version using Argil’s deepfake maker.

    A shift from text to video in Lead generation

    Text-based cold outreach is becoming increasingly ineffective and uncreative.

    Dictionaries seek entertaining interactions that give them a moment of escape during their day-to-day work.

    Video prospecting fills this gap by offering a personal touch that text can't match.

    Here are 3 reasons why video prospecting is gaining traction:

    1. Videos naturally capture and hold attention better than text.
    2. Video allows personality and authenticity to be expressed.
    3. Video message stands out in a crowded inbox (I promise).

    How will the LinkedIn lead gen market change?

    I believe there’s a very niche opportunity for agencies to jump on the deepfake wave. They’ll definitely need some time to learn how to use this technology to it’s best advantage but doing it now will be an edge for the future.

    LinkedIn lead agencies had a bad reputation because they lacked personalization and standardized offers that won’t deliver results now.

    AI deepfake videos are a new component that might be seen as a complex new tool, but with what we’re building at Argil, it will definitely help many agencies thrive.
