What is VidMob?
VidMob is here to rescue abandoned media, a.k.a. all those videos collecting digital dust on the billions of smartphones around the world. Why? Because not only does this content deserve to become something special, but there’s also a huge number of underutilized editors just itching to make it happen! So VidMob creates exciting, new jobs for these editors by matching them with diverse app users from around the globe—users wanting to transform their untapped content into stunning, professional, share-worthy videos.
How does VidMob work?
A VidMob project is born in the mobile app, where users upload media directly from their phone’s camera roll. After a user creates a new project, editors will bid on that job in the Mob Marketplace. Once the user selects a winning bid, the editor can download the media straight from the Edit Suite, our editors-only site. Using VidMob’s messaging tools to communicate with the user, the editor will construct a series of cuts ultimately resulting in a unique, personalized video.
What is the MobFeed?
The MobFeed is our community’s highlight reel, where users submit their finished projects and show them (and the editors who worked hard to create their projects!) off to the world. It’s a great way to see some of the top VidMob projects—from exploring what’s happening in other parts of the world to getting inspiration for your next project. Sharing not your thing? Not to worry. Users who choose to keep their video content private will not appear in the MobFeed.
How much does it cost to download the VidMob app?
It’s free to use the VidMob app! Users can download it from the iOS App Store or Google Play Store.
How does VidMob create jobs?
VidMob hopes to create over ten million new jobs. How, you might ask? By acting as the middleman that connects the multitude of app users who want affordable, professional video with editors who need work. It’s that simple! We make it easy, fun, and fast to help keep users happy and editors employed.
Are there plans to expand the app to Android platform?
Yes, there are plan to expand the app to the Android platform. However, it will not be available at the time of the IOS launch. We are working on it now and will provide updates through our social channels!
Why aren’t my auto-bids working?!
Are you receiving an error message? If not, your auto-bids are probably working just fine! It’s likely that you are in the “My Bids” tab of the Edit Suite, which–if you haven’t set up any manual bids–is why you’re seeing “No bids placed.” Sound about right? You’re not alone. Which is why we are currently working on a fix to relabel the “My Bids” section of the Edit Suite to more accurately differentiate between manual and auto-bids. If this doesn’t sound like what you’re experiencing, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll work through it 🙂
