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
  2. Click on the video block and then click Edit
  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.

Searching for campaigns just got easier! Our developers recently launched a new pagination feature that goes beyond the existing Sort options when searching for a specific campaign. While many customers found sorting to be helpful, the new Page controls allow you to page through by moving forward and back, or quickly access a specific page. This means less scrolling to find that particular campaign! Let’s take a look…

On the Campaigns tab the new pagination controls are available at the top and bottom of the page:

 

 

 

 

 

You can navigate with the current page display and use the previous/next page controls, or enter the page number you want to jump to. There’s also the option to adjust the display for 10, 20 or 40 campaigns:

 

 

 

 

Let us know if the new pagination feature saves you time! And remember, by giving your campaign a unique and meaningful internal name (your contacts do not see this), you make it easier to find it again when you need to.
