Want the option to send videos from your BombBomb account as fast as possible without having to construct an email from scratch? Yeah, so did we. That's why we made the Quick Send.
BombBomb's Quick Send lets you send videos quickly and easily to anyone in your contacts, including entire lists. Without the need for complicated email creation, Quick Send allows you to choose from generic and customized templates so you can send videos that are also visually appealing. No one will ever know it only took you a minute to send. And we won't tell them, either.
Check out the video above to get a brief walkthrough of our awesome Quick Send!
If you'd prefer to read, here's a step by step:
To use the Quick Send, log into your BombBomb account. In the top right of your screen, you'll see a red button with the word "Send" next to it. This is our Quick Send.
After clicking the Quick Send, you'll see the recorder pop up already fitted into a default email template. In the recipient line, enter the email address you'd like to send the video to and press the "Enter" key. Once the email address has registered, a gray box will form around the email address. You can also send to lists in your BombBomb account -- just begin typing in a list and you'll see it begin to auto-populate. If you ever want to take a contact or list off the recipient line, just click the X next to the contact or list and it will be removed from that line. Every contact that receives your email is blind copied, which means your email recipients will not see any other contacts that received this email.
You can also edit the subject line and the email body text in the fields below the recipient line.
If you'd like to use a different template, you can choose from the generic templates that BombBomb has provided to you, or any customized templates you may have in your account. To choose a different email template, go to the upper right corner of the Quick Send and click the "Options" button.
On the left you'll see the generic templates and any customized templates you have made. Select whichever template you'd like to use for your video. On the right, you can manage your notification settings and select which real-time notifications you'd like to receive. The top option notifies you via email each time your email is opened, and the bottom option notifies you each time your video is played. If you'd like to save these settings for future Quick Send video emails and use it for filming mobile videos from the BombBomb app, you can click the "Save Settings as Default" button. When you're finished making your selections, click "Close Options."
You can also manage your recorder settings from this screen. In the bottom right of the recorder, you'll see a gear icon. When you click this, you'll see you can change the options for video size, camera selection, and microphone selection using the dropdowns next to these options. This is especially useful if you have external cameras or microphones of high quality that you'd like to use for your videos!
To start and stop a recording, click the red button in the middle of the recorder. You'll see a countdown and you can start and stop recording whenever you'd like.
Once you've finished recording, you have a couple things you can do. You can re-record the video, you can play back the video, or you can snap a thumbnail image for the image if you'd prefer one over an animated gif.
When you're ready to send your video, go ahead and click the "Send" button in the upper right corner. At the top of the Quick Send, you'll see the status of the email as it's trying to send and once it actually does send.
