Two things are holding you back from greater success in your life and in your business.

Learn what they are and how video can help.


Greater Success Through Simple Video


The Two Things Holding You Back

The two things holding you back are time and distance.

They prevent us from getting face to face with more people.

With busy schedules on both sides of the get-together, we don’t have the time to do it as often as we should. Think: sorry, I have to cancel for Tuesday, what does next Thursday afternoon look like for you?

And, very often, we’re physically distant – we just can’t get face to face. Think: real estate agent with an out of town buyer or seller lead or sales rep with a geographically large territory.


Relationships Through Video for Greater Success

Fact: Our lives and our businesses are made better through relationships. We’re more successful and more satisfied through the connections we build with other people.

Fact: Relationships are best built face to face. We connect more effectively and deeply when we’re together in person.

BUT: Time and distance hold us back from being face to face as often as we’d like to be.

Fact: Simple video is the next best thing. It allows you to be there in person when you can’t be there in person.

Infused with subtlety, nuance, emotion, and nonverbal richness, video allows more complete and more human communication.

Synchronous video through Skype, Google Hangouts, Periscope, Meerkat, or any of the scores of video conferencing services available closes down the distance. They’re valuable tools.

But they don’t close down on time. You still need to coordinate and schedule. You still need to be available and present at the exact same time for the exact same duration.

Asynchronous video through BombBomb, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, YouTube, and many other tools don’t provide the give and take of a live video conference, but they cover both time and distance.

With BombBomb video email, you record and send the video when it’s convenient for you. Your recipient opens it up and plays it back when it’s convenient for him or her.


Success in Summary

Overcome time and distance. Overcome faceless communication. Connect in a more human way. Consider simple video as a regular, go-to tool to be yourself and to build relationship.
