You’re able to add videos to other systems such as Apple Mail, Outlook, Facebook, Twitter and more! It’s very easy to grab that HTML code or URL.
- Saves time and improves efficiency!
The BombBomb Google Chrome extension can definitely save you time! You don’t have to login to your BombBomb account and you can record a new video with the click of a button.
3 How do I use it?
For starters, you need to have Google Chrome for this extension. We aren’t saying you need to solely use Google Chrome from now on, but the BombBomb extension won’t be compatible with other browsers such as Safari.
Steps to getting Google Chrome and the Bombbomb Extension
1: Download and install Google Chrome (www.google.com/chrome)
2: Click and open the Chrome Icon once installed
3: Click “Extensions” at the very top under “Window”
4: Click “Get more extensions” at the bottom of your screen
5: Once in the Chrome Web Store, type “BombBomb” into the search bar
6: Click “add to chrome”
Once you have that all set up, you will see the BombBomb logo in the top right corner of your window. Click on this logo at any time to record a quick video and send it out in Email! You can also select from your video library by clicking on “All Videos” at the bottom.
Pro Tip: always hit the spacebar to stop your recording!
How to send or share video on other systems
Want to send BombBomb videos in Apple Mail or Outlook? After you save video or select video from library, you can click “copy HTML”. Once that’s copied, you’re able to paste that code into the body of an email. The video preview should pop up right away!
Want to share the video on Facebook or Twitter? This time you’ll click on “Copy URL” and you’ll past that into you Social Media post. Make sure to delete that link on your Facebook posts once the preview shows up. Also make sure to name your video accordingly since the title shows up when you share on social media. According to Ashley, you’re killing multiple birds with one stone by using that same video over all different channels!
Other Benefits of Google Chrome & Gmail
When you have a Gmail account, you’ll have a “Send Video” option above the “Compose” button. This is just another easy tool to send video! All your videos sent out of your Gmail account will be tracked – so you can keep an eye on how all your emails are performing. Apart from all this, you’ll get the Powerwheel – an amazing tool you can learn more about here: How to Send a Gmail Video Email: BombBomb Powerwheel
