Greater Success Through Simple Video


The Two Things Holding You Back From Greater Success

The two things holding you back from greater success every day are time and distance.

They prevent you from getting face to face with more people. They keep you apart from the people who matter most to your business.

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

Here’s a basic logic pattern to help you understand exactly why BombBomb exists (spoiler: to help you rehumanize your communication and build relationships through video).


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 Zoom, Skype, Google Hangouts, 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. Tracking and alerts close the loop – we tell you the exact who, when, and what of every email open, video play, and link click.

There’s no faster or easier way to do this. Several hundred people have each sent more than 1,000 videos from our web app, mobile app, Gmail or Outlook integrations, or another partner CRM or platform.


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.
