Do you remember that time when the telegraph was the hippest communication technology? Yeah, me neither. But just imagine the thrill of the Morse code beeping away into the wee hours of the night! Then came the telephone, then email, and suddenly, we had social media platforms – it’s been an exhilarating journey, hasn’t it? Now, let me introduce you to the latest entrant on the digital communication stage – VideoAsk.
“Ask and you shall receive,” said someone smart once. VideoAsk has taken that concept quite literally and thrown in a bit of video magic. What a time to be alive!
Let’s imagine this scenario: You’re running a small online business selling unicorn-themed cookie jars. Naturally, you want to connect with your customer base – other unicorn enthusiasts who also happen to have a thing for cookies. You could send them an email survey, but let’s face it – who wants to fill out a form when they could be watching cute cat videos instead?
Enter VideoAsk. You can simply record a quick video of yourself, asking customers about their unicorn preferences, and voila! They can respond in kind, leaving you a video message. Plus, you get to showcase your fantastic collection of unicorn onesies in the process. Win-win!
Sounds fun, doesn’t it? That’s because it is. It’s communication with a personal touch, yet convenient, efficient, and scalable.
But let’s get down to brass tacks, and look at what you’re getting for your buck.

You may wonder, “What if my customers don’t want to leave video responses?” Well, VideoAsk has that covered, too. Respondents can leave a video, voice, or text response, depending on their comfort level or how fabulous their hair looks on any given day.
VideoAsk is built to scale from small businesses to larger enterprises, all while maintaining its focus on a personal touch. It has a robust range of features even at the Basic level, with added benefits for Plus and Pro subscribers.
Remember when your mom told you not to talk to strangers? VideoAsk says, “Pfft, rules are meant to be broken!” Just kidding. But it does introduce a whole new level of personalized communication, where the Ďstrangerí behind the business becomes a friendly face, connecting with consumers in a real and impactful way.
I once tried VideoAsk to gather feedback about my imaginary pet iguana, Ignatius. The responses were overwhelmingly in favor of dressing him in tiny sombr
eros for Cinco de Mayo. So now, Ignatius is the life of the party, all thanks to the engaging platform VideoAsk has built.
User experience is also a big win for VideoAsk. The interface is as smooth as my grandmotherís secret-recipe apple sauce, intuitive and easy to navigate. As for respondents, they get to respond on their own terms, in their own time, and in a way that feels most authentic to them. What could be better?
While VideoAsk has a lot going for it, there are some areas for improvement. For instance, the mobile experience could be a bit more polished, and while the pricing is reasonable for what you’re getting, the cost could be prohibitive for some.
At the end of the day, VideoAsk is a fantastic tool for bridging the gap between businesses and consumers, making interaction more engaging and personal. In our digital age, itís easy to forget there are real humans on both ends of the transaction. VideoAsk helps us remember this in a fun and engaging way.
In conclusion, VideoAsk is a game-changer in the world of online communication. It takes the impersonal nature of digital interaction and adds a human touch, making each interaction a personalized experience. If you want to be remembered, if you want to stand out, if you want to bring your unicorn cookie jar business to the next level, then hop on the VideoAsk train. Trust me, Ignatius and I are already on board, and there’s plenty of room for you too. See you on the video side!
