Adding Video/GIF In Email Templates

Modified on Tue, 7 Feb, 2023 at 11:25 PM

The idea of including a video in your email message is an amazing method to grab your audience's attention by including original and engaging content. When you include videos in your emails, it enhances the quality of the message and increases the customer engagement. A majority of people prefer video over text to learn and gain knowledge of new products or services. But the problem comes when the email operators (gmail, yahoo, outlook) do not support embedded videos in the emails. The recipient won’t be able to see video in a mail or such email may even land in a spam folder.

Thankfully, NotifyVisitors provides a solution that will allow you to embed video within your email and encourage readers click-through the URL and watch the video. A video can be attached to an email far more easily than you might think. Let's look at how to accomplish that here.
