How does this automation work?

Bardeen's playbook leverages YouTube video transcripts to draft personalized outreach emails quickly and efficiently. For professionals in sales prospecting, recruiting, and research, this automation saves time by generating email content from a video's key messages. Utilize this workflow to enhance engagement with prospects and leads by referencing specific content that resonates with them.

Here's how this workflow crafts an outreach email from a YouTube video transcript:

  • Step 1: Extract Video ID - Retrieves the YouTube video ID from the current page URL using a regular expression.
  • Step 2: Get Transcript URL - Constructs the URL for the YouTube video transcript by merging the base transcript URL with the video ID.
  • Step 3: Locate Transcript Link - Identifies the correct link to the transcript using the constructed URL.
  • Step 4: Scrape Transcript - Uses the Scraper to extract the transcript text from the YouTube video in the background.
  • Step 5: Summarize Transcript - OpenAI summarizes the scraped transcript into a concise paragraph that captures the essence of the video.
  • Step 6: Draft Email Content - Formulates the main body of the outreach email by combining the summary with personalized elements relevant to the recipient.
  • Step 7: Create Email Draft - Google Mail is then used to create a draft email with the content devised in the previous steps, ready for review and sending.
