Announcing The Gratavid iOS & Android App!
How to maximize the Gratavid app
September 17, 2021 · 3 min read
Why the app?
1) Simple is key
We hear it all the time, “Gratavid is amazing, but we have a few people on our team that don’t know where to start.”
We get it. People are busy. New tech can be intimidating and everyone on the team is not always willing to learn a new tool. On top of that, some people just aren’t tech-savvy.
Luckily, this is exactly why we built the Gratavid app. The app is the most simplified version of Gratavid we could imagine.
It’s designed to easily send personalized videos and manage your Gratavid tasks quickly.
It's not designed to setup templates, manage integrations, or perform bulk actions. These advanced actions are completed by your Gratavid experts on the web version of Gratavid.
2) Team collaboration
The Gratavid task list is designed with team collaboration in mind. Have 100 personalized videos to record? Upload your list and assign a few videos to everyone on the team.
Now simply tell the team to download the Gratavid app and complete their tasks. You can even click the “Notify” button to notify everyone that has a task assigned to them.
Stewardship is the responsibility of everyone. Thanks to Gratavid, it's never been easier to make this a reality.
3) Convenience for on the go videos
Gratavids’ mission is to make your communication more human. Our data shows constituents don’t respond to the fancy high-produced videos; they respond to authentic videos recorded directly from your smartphone or webcam.
We equate these raw and authentic videos to the handwritten chicken scratch on a thank you card. It's not the most perfect video in the world, but your constituents know you are taking time out of your day to think about them. That's what matters.
The Gratavid app makes it even more convenient to record authentic videos on the go. Walking around campus? Send a Gratavid. Delivering supplies to a local shelter? Send a Gratavid.
It’s never been easier to bring your constituents to the scene and create authentic videos.
It’s magic when you’ve set up the Gratavid integrations and your team has downloaded the Gratavid app. Why? Because of notifications.
Your team doesn’t have to remember to check Gratavid. They simply go on living their normal life and Gratavid will notify them when it’s time to record a personalized video.
Here are 3 examples of the notifications your team might receive:
1) Import from phone contacts
You can easily import contacts directly from your phone to send them a personalized video via email and text.
2) Teleprompter (iOS only)
If the app is download on your phone and you click a video request link, the request will automatically open in the app (no sign-in required). You can then click on the expand directions button to overlay your directions as you record your video.
To maximize your teams' effort with the app you should:
1) Make sure your team has downloaded the app
2) Set up your Gratavid integrations
3) Follow the steps under Your First One-to-One Gratavid Campaign to create some tasks, assign them to your team, and then click "Notify" to send everyone a notification on their Gratavid app
THANK YOU to all of our beta testers for your ideas and inspiration. We couldn't have done it without you.
