Sending videos hasn’t always been a seamless process, but nowadays, video email platforms like Covideo, let you bypass those obstacles and help you reap the benefits that video has to offer.
With Covideo, you have the option to record personalized videos and send via email, text message, social media, or through your CRM. If you’re wondering how to embed video in email, we’ve got you covered. Covideo automatically generates a thumbnail preview from your video, so your face is the first thing your customers see when your email is opened, helping you stand out in the inbox and improving response rates.
Let’s explore the number of ways to share your videos after you finish recording.
1. Covideo Website
To send a video email through the website, start from your “My Videos” page. Hover over the video you wish to send out and select the envelope icon.
Customize your video’s landing page and call-to-action buttons, then enter the recipient’s email address, a subject, and any text you want to include in the body of the email. Your video will be at the very top of the body once you click send, so do not worry if you don’t see it in the preview.
Pro tip: For best results, include the word “video” in your video email subject lines to increase click through rates by 19%.
2. Mobile Application
The Covideo mobile app makes creating and maintaining relationships with your customers as simple as 1-2-3. It also allows you to record and send personalized videos while on the go. Through the app, you have the option to email videos, or send it via text message, offering another avenue to reach your audience.

5. CRM Copy and Paste
Covideo fits in seamlessly with your existing processes and integrates into your CRM or email platforms. To do so, find the video you want to send, click “share video”, customize your video settings, and select the green CRM button. Next, click “copy CRM button” and paste the video into your CRM or email platform. Voila! No HTML code or techy-knowledge required. Leave that to us.
6. Social Media
While you have the option to share your video to social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Youtube directly from Covideo, we prefer a different method in order to optimize engagement. Our best recommendation when sharing to social media is to download your video from your Vovideo account and then upload it to the social media page of your choice. This will allow the video to play in your feed as a full screen video rather than a small image that has to be clicked on.
7. Embed on Website
To embed a video into your website click on the “Share video” icon located on the video in your Covideo library. From here you can access the “Embed” section where you can choose the dimensions that would fit perfectly onto the site. Then, simply copy the embed code and paste it where you wish to add your video.
