3GE Video Block

by CTCT Employee Caitlin_M on ‎12-29-2016 09:40 AM

Videos can be a great addition to your emails. Did you know that emails with a video receive a 300 percent higher click-through rate than those without? You can use a video to promote, educate, or entertain your readers. Now, with the third-generation editor, you can easily include a YouTube video in your campaigns!

 

Here are the simple steps to add a video into your campaign:

 

  1. Click and drag the Video block under the Build element and place it into your campaign

  3. Copy and paste the URL for your Youtube video into the space provided. You will then see a preview of your video below. Click Insert.

  4. Once you have inserted the video, you can resize the thumbnail of the video by hovering over the thumbnail and using the double-sided arrow to adjust the sizing to your liking.

Just like the other blocks in the third-generation editor, you can stack the blocks like the image below. I used the Video, Text and Image blocks to create this.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! Let us know what types of videos you will be sharing with your readers.
