ZOMM Goes on Shark Tank

After two months of preparation and the final taping, our Shark Tank episode finally aired on ABC last night. The response has been overwhelming and we are thrilled to have been given this experience.

Shark Tank serves as a great platform for getting an idea off the ground and an amazing opportunity for budding entrepreneurs. However, a company that is further along in its lifecycle, such as ZOMM, Shark Tank may better serve as a vehicle to bring awareness to a company or product. Our “ask” was more than had ever been asked on the show and it became apparent very early on that a deal would not be in the making.

We received great exposure and even with beefed-up servers, it was an effort to keep up with all the traffic. I truly hope that everyone who couldn’t get on our website before, because of the overwhelming response, will visit us again soon at www.zomm.com.

If I had to do it all over again, to get a deal, I would match the “ask” to the parameters of the show. To get exposure, I wouldn’t change a thing! ZOMM is on a great trajectory moving forward. Products and services that have been developed by ZOMM but could not be discussed on the Shark Tank, as they were not part of the “deal,” are serving the company very well. Hopefully ABC will do a follow up next season and show the Sharks what they let swim away.
