Facebooktwitterlinkedin

We’ve had a busy month at OneMob and we’ve added some new features to help you hit your goals.

Animated thumbnail in email

Now you can make your video irresistible to click on with an animated thumbnail. Simply click the slider option for “Turn On Animated Thumbnail” and bring your thumbnail to life by adding a GIF style moving image to your email.

Invite your teams

You can now easily invite your team members or colleagues to join you on OneMob. Don’t forget to “set team access” on the content you’d like to share within OneMob so your colleague has access to content thats already in OneMob.

Upload video with reply button

We brought back the ability to upload a video when using the OneMob page reply button. Looking to setup a pitch contest or get video responses on your message? Now your audience can record a video directly on your page OR upload a video from their device.

Cookie Identifier

Do you feel like your tracking is off or a colleague is incorrectly cookied? Look for the eyeball in the bottom right corner of any OneMob page. This will show you who you are cookied as with the option to reset.

Faster Video Approvals

If your organization is taking advantage of our video approval system you know that even if you had a video approved already you’d have to go through the approval process again if you edit your video…not anymore!

V2 of Webcam Recorder

We’ve deployed an update to our OneMob.com webcam recorder, you may notice better performance and reliability.

Webex Teams Share Improvements

Did you know you can share your OneMob posts directly to WebEx Teams? We’ve made some changes that will improve your experience and make posting to Teams more reliable and easier then ever.

Add Watermarks from the Content Library

Now you can add watermarks from the content library. That means you can upload a video created outside of OneMob and add a watermark. You can also skip adding a watermark during the video creation process and add it after your video is saved to OneMob.

Embed Images into your OneMob Emails

Make your emails more visual or add an additional branding element to the body of your email. From the email composer upload an image to the body of your email.

Content Thumbnails in Links & Emails

Sending a OneMob page of content with no featured video? Now in addition to the link we’ll include the thumbnail image of the first piece of content on your page. Previously thumbnails were only included if you had a featured video.

OneMob Info Panel

Get the latest and greatest product updates, webinar invites and information from the OneMob team, directly at the top of OneMob.com. Close out the message to make it go away until we add the next message.

5 Ways to Customize your OneMob Message

Facebooktwitterlinkedin

Sending a OneMob is a great way to get your customers attention but even the best messages can go unseen. We’ve put together five tips on how you can customize a message for your customer, giving you the best chance to capture their attention and deliver your message and content.

1. Add Text to your Video

With OneMob’s IOS and Android apps you have the ability to add text on top of your video. Add a custom message for your viewer by adding a name, call to action or your contact information.


2. Customize your Thumbnail

Every OneMob video has a thumbnail. That’s the image your customer will see when you send your OneMob through email or post a link online. We suggest to always make that thumbnail look great, but you can also customize that thumbnail to get your customers attention. By editing the thumbnail you have the ability to load a new image or screenshot or even take a picture with your webcam (try adding your customers name on a whiteboard in the picture).

3. Use the built in Mail Merge

OneMob’s email composer has a built in mail merge that will allow you to insert merge fields like first name, last name, company name and more into your message. This is great for mass emails or to give your message a more personal touch. To use the mail merge feature you must upload your contacts using the CSV upload and include the information for the fields you’ll want to add.


4. Use a Green Screen

If you create your video in front of a green screen OneMob allows you to add any image or video from your content library onto that green screen. This makes your possibilities endless. Add your customers website, logo or building behind you…they won’t be able to resist watching your message. If you work in sports put your teams highlight or hype video behind you while you deliver your call to action. Adding these images or videos is a unique way to stand out among the other noise your customers are distracted by. Try using OneMob’s mobile apps with live green screening for the best results!

5. Add your Customer’s Logo to your Watermarks

Prospecting a Business, add their logo as a watermark

OneMob’s watermark feature is like putting a sticker on top of your video. Using your companies logo as a watermark is a great way to brand your video so that your customers know who this video is from. But did you know you can load anything as a thumbnail? Try adding your customers logo or slogan. Make sure it’s clear and visible when you choose your thumbnail and remember the watermark will be on top of your recording. Only your companies OneMob admin can add watermarks so contact them for help getting set up.

A New Use Case: Reply with Video

Facebooktwitterlinkedin

Over the summer, a customer approached me about setting up some OneMob licenses for their business partner. We jumped on a call to figure out specifics, i.e. who, what, when, where and most importantly….why. On this call, I discovered that the customer was hosting a series of events for their large partner. The goal was to educate their partner sellers on all their new offerings to help them sell more. The customer wanted a way to ensure the partner sellers retained key points from the trainings, so they decided to run a video pitch contest. After the event, the customer would have each partner seller do a short pitch on the new products and then judge the results. The winning video submissions would get showcased, awarded, etc. The partner loved the idea!

We loved it too! We initially thought we were going to have to get licenses for all the partner sellers, but we wanted to launch this relatively quickly with little to no setup. This new use case got us thinking creatively and ultimately had us leverage one of our great features you’ve probably never used (or knew about). Video Reply!

Often overlooked, every OneMob page you send includes a default reply button. The button allows your viewer to quickly reply to you directly from the OneMob page. The reply is then stored in OneMob and also emailed back to the sender to follow up. Well…that reply button can also facilitate a video reply, which means the viewer can quickly and effortlessly record or upload a video response. They do not even need to be a OneMob user!

As soon as I reminded the customer about that video reply button and its ability to collect video responses, the light bulbs went off! As a result, they sent a OneMob to the partner sellers who attended the event and asked them to reply with their video. The customer received over 40 video replies and rewarded 6 contest winners for their pitches. More importantly, the customer knows the partner sellers are better equipped to sell the new offerings which will results in more business for all parties. And OneMob learned about a new (and easy to deploy) use case that we recommend to all companies who want their partners (and employees) pitching the right stuff. It was a true win-win-win.
