funnel-diagramLead generation is, of course, important for any business with growth aspiration. Your video conference business may be using a number of techniques to attract and nurture leads including content marketing, email marketing, search marketing, social marketing, and more.

One key challenge is to increase the lead to prospect ratio. In other words, you want to get more of the people that have at some point in the past shown an interest in your company in one way or another, to actually evaluate and potentially buy your products and services.

As a video conference business, you probably have multiple mechanisms in place to convert leads to prospects, including quote forms and trial of your virtual meeting room (VMR) service and endpoint registration and calling service.

The REC.VC White Label Edition for video conferencing resellers and service providers not only complements your existing portfolio of video conferencing products and services, it also adds to your existing lead to prospect conversion activities as it includes complete free trial functionality.

The white label edition includes the following:

  • 1 white label site and domain (see yourbrand.rec.vc for details)
  • Unlimited number of 14-day free trial accounts
  • REC.VC Base Group 10 and Live Streaming 100 Subscriptions for your internal/demo use
  • 100% hosted by REC.VC (customers select between US, EU or hosting in Norway)

The trial process work as follows:

  • Person registers via your REC.VC white label site
  • Person receives an activation link by email which automatically creates the trial account
  • You’ll receive email notification for each sign-up and can follow their trial activities via the admin interface.
  • Person’s trial account is automatically disabled after 14 days. The person will still be able to access his/her account to share and download recordings, but will not be able to start any new recording or streaming sessions.

To learn more about how your video conference business can leverage the REC.VC White Label Edition, please contact sales@rec.vc. You can also sign-up for your own trial account via my.rec.vc.

Recording should be a key component in any Video Conferencing (VC) service offering. At REC.VC we are convinced it is best provided to customers and users under the brand of the VC service. Service providers may evaluate one or a combination of the following white label approaches for REC.VC:

  • Register recorder addresses with your domain
  • White label the REC.VC user portal with your brand
  • Add recording button to your existing user interface

Register recorder addresses with your domain

As a service provider, you may already be providing your users with their personal video address or SIP URIs, e.g. username@yourbrand.com. You can in a similar fashion provide users with their personal recorder video address, e.g. username.rec@yourbrand.com or username@rec.yourbrand.com.

REC.VC recorders can register to any SIP registrar (just like any SIP device) but depending on the use case and interop requirements, registering the recorders to a Cisco VCS may be the way to go. For 1st line support and troubleshooting purposes we recommend that the SIP registrar in question is under your management (which is likely the point anyway since your existing domain(s) point to this SIP registrar). Alternatively, REC.VC can provide SIP registrar whom you can point your domain to (SRV records).

White label the REC.VC user portal with your brand

As multitenant cloud platform, REC.VC enables white label sites per reseller or service provider (and even for each customer subject to commercial terms). Each white label site can be provisioned with:

  • Your preferred domain (e.g. rec.yourbrand.com) or yourbrand.rec.vc
  • Your logo, favicon.ico and font(s)
  • Your colors on buttons and backgrounds
  • Your content (title, body, footer, etc)

The white label sites come with an optional registration field enabling resellers and service providers to use the site for lead-gen purposes in addition to providing existing users with a recording and playback user interface.

You may visit my.rec.vc and yourbrand.rec.vc to see examples of REC.VC sites (in addition to the screenshots illustrating this blog post).

REC.VC White label GUI Example

Add recording button to your existing interface

For service providers and vendors/manufacturers wanting to make REC.VC recording, streaming and/or playback an integral part of their existing user interface, we recommend using the REC.VC API which includes all the features and capabilities available in the REC.VC user portal. The API can e.g. be used in the following areas:

  • Provisioning of Companies (in hierarchical structure, parent/child relation), and users and recorders within Companies.
  • Call control for calling out from the recorders (to be used when adding recording button to your existing interface), disconnecting calls, and retrieval of call statistics.
  • Retrieval of recorded video meta data (video thumbnail, title, URL) for playback in your existing user interface or portal.
