Inserting video to email campaign

Inserting video to email campaign

I am trying to insert a video from an email. It is not a YouTube video so I don't think it has a URL?? Not sure. Any advice?

Re: Inserting video to email campaign

Hi @KarenM224

 

Great question! To insert a video into an email on Constant Contact the video would have to be hosted on a different site. If the video is on YouTube or Vimeo, you would be able to insert it through our video block.  If the video is hosted on any other site, it would have to be placed in your email by a screenshot made clickable. Being able to upload a video from your own email into Constant Contact is not a feature we currently have. However I would be happy to track this feature request for you.

Hello @KateB129! Just to add on to Zoe’s reply I just wanted to inform you that while you cannot directly embed a video into your emails you still have the option to link a video as long as it is hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia. Our system will take the video link and create a thumbnail for your video and add a play button on it!

Re: Inserting video to email campaign

There is no video block listed when I am creating an email.  The block categories are:

preheader, logo, image, section headline, subheadline, content, feature w left image, feature w right image, feature article, article w left image, article w right image, article, signature, button, divider, coupon, social media, spacer.  

Can you explain where I find the video block?

Hi @ScottC670

 

Thank you for sharing these details! It sounds like you are still working in an older Legacy Newsletter through our Second Generation Editor. The option to add a video in these campaigns are a little different, but definitely still possible. When you are in your desired block, you can add a video through the Video Link feature. This feature is located under Insert to the left of your email and is available in every block. I would however suggest adding you video in a content, image, or feature article block.
