Engage your audience with video content directly in your emails.
Staying in touch with your audience is vital to your success as a creator. One of the best ways to sustain their engagement is to share your work as often as possible.
One way to do this? Video.
Whether you have a new story to tell, a new song to share, or a new podcast episode that just dropped, you can let your fans know about it first by including it in a broadcast email to your list!
Let's get started.
First, from within your account, click on the Broadcasts tab. Then click Create new broadcast on the righthand side.
From here, you'll follow the usual steps of dropping in that subject line, and adding some copy!
Next comes the part where you get to include your video directly in your email. 🎉
To do this, simply click into the editor on the right side, and select the URL option. Then go ahead and paste in your video link!
All of the regular tools are there as well, so you can choose to right, center, or left align your video. Change the button and accent colors, adjust the video size, and more.
But hold up. It gets even better.
Show a preview or play the video.
You can choose to show a GIF preview within your email, which is a 15 second animated preview of your video that will support increased engagement.
Not to mention, it looks awesome.
There’s also an option to play the video with in the email itself, when supported.
👉 If you're using a client that supports native video (Apple Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook.com, etc) it will play the video inline. Other email clients should fallback to an animated preview.
