At BombBomb, we are on a mission to rehumanize the world. Instead of relying on faceless, typed-out text, BombBomb helps people communicate more effectively by sending personal videos.
And because we believe so deeply in this mission, we want to come alongside nonprofit organizations doing the work of rehumanizing the dehumanized by offering free BombBomb Essentials accounts.
What are the requirements to get a free account?
To be eligible for a free BombBomb Essentials account, you must work for a nonprofit organization focused on rehumanizing the world. Each nonprofit is eligible for 3 free BombBomb Essentials accounts. Examples of nonprofits rehumanizing the world include:
- Food, healthcare, or education access
- Child, social, and homelessness services
- Disaster relief and human rights protection
- Access to water, hygiene, and sanitation
- Ministry organizations
Is it really free or is there a time limit?
Yes, it’s really free, and, no, there’s no time limit. The face value of a BombBomb Essentials account is $29/month or $299/year. It’s our gift to you because our mission is to help rehumanize the world, and we want to help you better accomplish your goals.
I work at a nonprofit, but it’s not focused on human services. Do I qualify for a free account?
Unfortunately, no. While we honor and value the work of other types of nonprofits, our free accounts are focused on organizations that are ‘rehumanizing’ the planet, as that is our mission as a company as well.
What do I get with a BombBomb Essentials account?
With a BombBomb Essentials account, you receive the following features:
- Live video recording and screen recording
- Our Google Chrome extension, including video recording in Gmail
- Our mobile apps and web application
- The ability to easily share videos anywhere
- Unlimited video storage, video library access and tracking.
Not included with BombBomb Essentials are: mass email sending, our drag-and-drop email composer, email templates library, and phone support.
Do I have to have special equipment?
Nope. As long as your computer or phone have a camera built in and you have a solid internet connection, you’re good to go. At BombBomb, we enable you to send authentic, relatable videos of YOU, not polished marketing videos requiring special equipment.
What are some ways I would use this?
Do you want your emails to stand out in a potential donor’s inbox? Or do you want face time with a volunteer but your schedules don’t allow it? Sending a personal video is the next best thing to being in person. What about sending meaningful, authentic thank-you videos to your supporters? A video from you to another individual is so much more effective than plain, typed out text. We know—we’ve tested it! A few ideas for using video to help you reach your goals:
- Connect with your volunteers with a video to make them feel appreciated and seen.
- Make an end-of-year giving appeal from one person to another, with video.
- Make your donors feel appreciated and part of the family by sending them a personal video.
- Keep your team connected by sending announcements, updates, and gratitude via video message.
