I use a program called Dubb to create videos for my emails. They have a very simple process of inserting videos into any email program I currently use. A simple copy and paste into Gmail, Outlook, or any email provided works seamlessly. Copy from the Dubb site, paste anywhere you want in the above email providers and you get a animated GIF pasted in with a simple click view the video. This method works on as well.
I can't seem to figure out how to get this to work simply in Constant Contact, does anyone have a solution.
Here is what the link looks like (it actually works in here also) How do I get this going in my email templates? Thank you in advance. THIS IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL VIDEO I WOULD USE FOR MARKETING IT IS A TEST VIDEO TO TRY AND FIGURE OUT A SOLUTION.
Thank you for reaching out to the Constant Contact Community. It's my pleasure to assist you today.
I'm sorry you are having trouble inserting your video link into your Constant Contact email. At this time, Constant Contact will not generate an image by just adding a link. You can generate the image you are mentioning by using our Insert Video option, this does require that the video be hosted on YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia. You can also use your video if it's hosted by another site by using a screenshot or animated gif of the video and then linking it directly to the URL where the video is hosted. Here is an article that describes both options.
Please feel free to reach out if you need further assistance. Thank you for being apart of the Constant Contact Family and I hope you have a great weekend.
