“ZipMessage has saved us HOURS of time. It's a great way to collect intro videos instead of having calls. It revolutionizes your workflow.”
Jane Portman, Co-founder, Userlist
Video submission software, explained.
What is video submission software?
You might be familiar with regular forms software tools that let you build forms with a variety of field-types. However, forms tools won't let you collect video intakes.
When you want people to submit a video as their form submission, you'll need a video intake form solution (like ZipMessage). The key is to make it easy for anyone to record a video and submit it via your video intake form.
Examples of video submission forms
When might you need a video submissions solution? Here are just a couple common examples:
Job application forms
Video can go a long way when it comes to filtering candidates you might hire for your next position at your company. Rather than scheduling live calls with every candidate, you can set up a video submission form to get a first look (and listen) from applicants. Check out our async interviews workflow for that.
Need your customers to show you what they're seeing? You can ask them to submit a video that shows their screen so you can quickly and efficiently troubleshoot their issue.
Public "Ask Me Anything"s (AMAs)
How about asking your audience to submit their questions to you so you can answer them on your next YouTube video. Or better yet—this can be material to record your podcast asynchronously.
How to collect video submissions from anyone
Collecting video submissions doesn't need to be complicated. There are a few key steps to make collecting video submissions efficient:
1. Create your video intake form
It shouldn't be complicated or overwhelming for your respondents, otherwise you won't receive as many submissions as you'd like. Bonus: Offer an option to submit an audio-only or text response. Not everyone is comfortable speaking on video!
2. Share your intake form with your audience
Wherever your audience is coming from (a job application or social media etc.), be sure to promote the link to your video intake form prominently.
3. Transcribe & playback your video responses
You might receive a lot of video submissions so you'll need to have an efficient way to review them. Tip #1: Get text transcriptions that are searchable and easy to scan. Tip #2: Playback the video responses at 2x the speed!
4. Reply to those who submitted videos
Rather than jumping straight to scheduling a Zoom meeting, why not respond with an video of your own? You can even conduct your entire meeting asynchronously.

Personalized URLs for intake pages you can share with anyone.
ZipMessage gives you your own URL as the basis for every link you share with others.
Personalize your ZipMessage link with your own name or brand name, like zipmessage.com/your-name.
Anyone can record their camera, screen, audio, or text.
When respondents visit your video intake form, they have the option to record their camera and/or screen, along with their microphone.
Nothing to download or install! They can record directly into the browser at the link you send them.
Camera shy? Respondents can opt to respond with text, attachments, or audio-only.
Scan & search video submissions with transcriptions & high-speed playback.
Receiving lots of video submissions and need to review them quickly?
ZipMessage automatically transcribes your respondent's video or audio messages so that you can read, scan and search the text of what they said.
Just need to speed up the video playback? Increase to 2x the speed and breeze through those video responses twice as fast.
Embed video intake forms
on your website.
To fully "white label" the experience for your respondents, you can embed ZipMessage video intake forms on your own website using our HTML embed code.
Visitors to your website can record and submit their video message without ever leaving your website on your domain.
ZipMessage embeds work on all major website platforms! Just copy and paste the embed code and you're good to go!
Respond to respondents and continue the conversation asynchronously.
After someone submits their video, what's next?
Why not respond back to them with a video of your own? And continue that back-and-forth exchange of video messages, asynchronously!
ZipMessage gives you the ability to receive video submissions then continue your interaction as an asynchronous meeting.
