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
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.

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.
Nimesh and I took a big bet on video 5 years ago and we’ve learned a TON along the way. Like the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child, and it’s taken a village to build this company. We are so grateful to our team (present and past), customers, investors, advisors, partners, families and friends.
5 Things We’ve Learned Along The Way
Video is here to stay! Even if you’re not using it (what’s taking you so long!), you’re definitely consuming it. And we love the growing appetite businesses are having toward video in sales.
Don’t give up! Everyone is looking for a quick success, but it’s the long game that’s most rewarding and demonstrates the real winners. You may stumble along the way (if you didn’t, you’re not taking enough risks!), but if you can weather the storm, you will eventually see the most beautiful rainbow.
Be courageous! Startups are not for the faint of heart, they are full of risks and uncertainty. However, they are also an opportunity to flex your “muscle” and make bold, courageous and defining moves in your life. And often times, that’s when things get exhilarating and fulfilling.
Surround yourself with amazing people! Life’s too short to dread where you work. Find a team that inspires you…and that you can inspire…and then do amazing things together.
Don’t limit your thinking! Bill Gates said, “Most people overestimate what they can do in one year and underestimate what they can do in ten years.” We feel the same way Bill. We hope we can continue to amaze all of you over the next 5 years.

The AA-ISP LS2019 is the Inside Sales Leadership Event of the Year! As the world of sales advances, the skills of our leaders must follow suit. Data analysis, technology, sales skills, prospecting tools, personalization, artificial intelligence and (most importantly) leadership, are just a few of the activities and goals that leaders are focusing on each day. LS2019 will help leaders prioritize their own mission for their team and organization while also focusing on personal leadership development.
In 2006, Salesforce had a grand vision to turn their CRM into a platform. As powerful as their CRM had become, there were always specific request that would arise from customers. So instead of Salesforce building everything, they opened their platform to partners to build native and composite integrations that would run seamlessly in Salesforce UI, while providing their customers with a new array of features and benefits. Salesforce benefited by quickly expanding their footprint via partners…and partners benefited by accessing their valuable customer base…and customers benefited by having new capabilities all in one place. It truly was a win-win-win. I was fortunate to be part of this team and we ultimately built the Salesforce AppExchange from an idea to over 2000 apps. 2 years later Apple would release their App Store.
Fast forward to today and there are more platforms becoming the home for the modern sales rep. One in particular is Outreach. Outreach, the leading sales engagement platform, automates and prioritizes customer touch points throughout the sales process, resulting in increased productivity for sales teams. Thousands of customers rely on Outreach to transform the sales process, drive collaboration between sales and marketing, and deliver higher revenue per sales rep.
OneMob has partnered with Outreach to allow sales people to record a personal video and create a web page of content that can be delivered in their Outreach sequence. The end results will 1) make Outreach more personal and effective, resulting in more responses and opportunities and 2) provide sales people with real time insights around which content is being consumed by the buyer during their journey. Additionally, all this OneMob engagement data can be tracked to your Salesforce or MS Dynamics CRM, enriching your customer database.
Today, OneMob will be redesigning their current integration to work with the new Outreach Galaxy to greater improve efficiency and effectiveness. On average, customers engage with 11.4 pieces of content prior to making a purchase (Source: Forrester). When we learned this, we immediately knew the sales rep’s voice was missing from all this content. We know sales reps are looking for the most human and efficient way to get in front of their buyer and provide the right content, context and call to action. This is why we designed OneMob to give sales reps a simple way to record an engaging video (context) from your mobile phone or computer, pull together marketing approved assets (content) and add the necessary steps (call to actions) to move their buyer along the path to purchase. Partnering with Outreach Galaxy allows sales reps to streamline this process in one place.
Take advantage of the OneMob Outreach integration today.

Selling is an art. But even the best masterpieces start with a foundation, outline or framework. Selling is no different. I believe those 3 pillars are:
Call to Action
As you think about your selling strategies for 2019, I recommend you think about your foundation and optimize your technology accordingly. The right foundation will not only equip your sellers for success, but it will combine the right departments in the organization to work together. Because selling is a team sport, especially B2B selling.
Content is King! If there’s one thing we can learn from Hollywood, great content wins. Even as Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime, and many others battle it out for consumer mindshare, it’s the engaging content that gets consumers to return (or binge watch all night). Same is true with selling, buyers are looking at content to help them make their purchase. These 3 stats say it all:
82% of buyers viewed at least 5 pieces of content from the winning vendor (Source: Forrester)
94% of B2B buyers view multiple pieces of content from the vendor they ultimately select (Source: DemandGenReport)
On average, customers engage with 11.4 pieces of content prior to making a purchase (Source: Forrester)
As a seller, content should be as important (at least top 3) as the CRM/tools you use to do business. And if your company is large enough, you should be leveraging your Marketing team to give you access to the latest, greatest and most relevant content.
But let’s be honest, what really happens? Tell me if this sounds familiar.
Seller finds some random PDF/PPT or web link, and sends it blindly to a buyers (expecting it’s some magic bullet to seal the deal)
Marketing has no idea what sellers are using and if it’s even the latest and greatest
Seller and Marketing have no idea if buyers even looks at it
As a result, you buyers have no context with all the content being shared. Buyers are busy, and it’s not realistic to expect them to make sense of all your content out there…without context. This is an opportunity to start working smarter, not harder. More on that later.
Context is relevance. If the buyer doesn’t see WIIFM (What’s in it for me?), they are going to move on. The best content in the world can mean diddly-squat if there’s no context for the buyer reviewing it. So how do you provide context. Well, ideally you do that in person. This is why it’s rarely a good idea to send over a PPT cold. You need to add a storyline. You could attempt to write that out in the email, but that’s going to be too long and likely won’t be read.
So if you can’t be there in person, be there virtually through video. Video is a fantastic medium to add context such as:
Who you are: If you’re asking for money, at least have the decency to tell the buyer who you are
What you want: Time is precious, tell the buyer what you want and…
Why should the buyer care: Remember WIIFM…yes, this is about the buyer, not you
What next: What do you want the buyer to do next if interested
So you’ve put together the perfect content, and you’ve added some personal and engaging context. Last but not least, you need a call to action.
Call to Action
Call to Action is the close. It may not be the close of sale, but it should be moving the buyer in that direction. Ask the buyer what you want (remember, if you don’t ask, you won’t receive). But the ask needs to match the content and context. If you’re just starting the dialog, maybe the ask is to register for an event or book a time to meet. If you are further along, maybe it’s to review and approve the order. If this is post-sales, maybe it’s to review the 30-60-90 day rollout plan. Always have a call to action (unless it’s a purely informative message) that’s appropriate to the state of the buyer journey.
By 2020, customers will manage 85% of the buyer’s journey without interacting with a single human being (Source: Gartner). This means that content will only become MORE important, and so will the need for context and call to action. And remember, 80% of buyers want to continue to receive content after a sale is completed (Source: MarketingProfs), so this approach will help you in both net-new sales and support/renewals/growth.
If you’re looking for a platform to provide your sales, customer success and marketing teams a way to quickly pull together content, add personalized and relevant context, and display engaging call to actions, check out OneMob. OneMob allows sellers to pull together multiple pieces of content on a single company branded web page, add a personal video for context, and display multiple call to actions to elicit a response from your buyer. Every action made from the buyer is tracked, so the seller (and Marketing) know what content is being viewed, by who, and for how long. And all these activities are automatically logged back to your CRM like Salesforce and Microsoft Dynamics.
