How I am using BombBomb Video Email With LinkedIn

Mortgage and Lending with Cardinal Financial Company, Limited Partnership NMLS#386911

The video email service BombBomb can be used to generate business! I started using BombBomb several months ago. I am super excited about how it has helped me connect with people, and I have only scratched the surface with its capabilities!


In this article I will let you know how I am utilizing BombBomb to build relationships and generate business with my LinkedIn connections.


BombBomb with LinkedIn

Have you figured out how to generate business on LinkedIn? I have been on LinkedIn for years. I have over 2000 connections. I don't think I have generated more than a handful of loans from my connections!


This lack of productivity made me think - what can I do different to build relationships and generate business on LinkedIn. My answer - send a video!


I decided to click on the My Network link on top of the LinkedIn home page. On the left hand side of the next page I clicked on the connection link:


From here, I started scrolling down through my connections. I realized I had not actually had any contact with many of these people beyond our "connection".


I decided to send these "contactless" connections a BombBomb video. Here is an example:

As you can see, it's a simple message, and it's short - how easy is that? I have been getting great results!
Why am I getting these great results? I believe for a couple of reasons.
The first reason is because it is different. Instead of getting a plain text message or email, the receiver is getting a video. It's eyecatching! By the way, the video received has a 3 second GIF that repeats, enticing the receiver to click to play the video!
The other reason is because it is personable. The receiver sees what I look and sound like. I say their name. I'm not a robot blasting bland emails.
Here is an email I received last week from someone who received the video - the subject line was "Loved Your Video"

Hi Phil, 

Loved your video!  So cool, lets meet by phone and see how we can help each other bring in more business this year!


I don't think I would have received this reaction if I had sent a plain message or email saying "can we meet for coffee?"


As I stated before, I am just scratching the surface with video email. I will follow up with more articles on how I am using BombBomb to build relationships, generate leads, and grow my business!

Great way to connect with peers and clients. You are smart to use the power of videos to build relationships. I've never thought about using it for LinkedIn, either. Good job.

Could I trouble you to ask HOW you're sending the message? I know how to send BB through an email or through the app but not through LinkedIn, although that seems like a brilliant idea! I must be missing something obvious. Maybe you're just sending them a BB email to their email address, not through LI?

This would be a nice way to convey content to my LinkedIn network. I use to grow my network and influence but the video would be a nice compliment to content.
