Video Texting can be used to quickly send short videos to your existing clients and new leads right from Follow Up Boss. Videos are personal and detailed and provide a new way to connect with your leads and close more deals!
Each video text contains a message and a link to the video you've chosen and uploaded from the FUB Mobile App. We upload the video to a link to ensure it keeps its quality for the recipient. You can even add your own message with the link to personalize each text message!
How it works
Sending Video Texts on iPhone
Choosing a Video Message
- Select a video to send with your text message by choosing the image icon and choosing the video from the library.
- You can also record a new video to send. After you've chosen a video or recorded a new one, a preview will appear at the bottom of the screen.
Sending Your Video Message
Once the video and text have been added, a thumbnail of the video will appear above the text message. Send the video and message by selecting the upward blue arrow. You'll see a short message and link attached with the video. You can edit the message, but the link will be automatically updated with a valid link for the video after it is sent.
After your video is sent, check back in the message thread to see if the video has been viewed. When the recipient views your video, a "Viewed" message will appear under the message:
