How to Send Video Emails with Intercom and Mailchimp

Email marketing is supposed to help entrepreneurs to establish a line of business-to-consumer communication, which is critical for reaching out to the audience and receiving feedback. But if you really want to maximize outreach and understand which marketing tactics work better, you need to integrate email campaigns with video. And this can be super easy, especially if you’re using one of the popular email marketing & customer communication platforms.

Video increases the power of your email message because video emails have higher open rates. Most video hosting platforms have ways to integrate your videos into your email campaigns. You may be able to copy and paste an automatically generated code into an email. Viewers are able to see a thumbnail and click on it to view the video in their browser.

Create video email campaigns with an email provider

Most private video hosting platforms allow you to integrate seamlessly with your email provider.  For instance, to embed a Cincopa video gallery into a MailChimp email template, you simply need to copy and paste the optimized code, which you can get on Cincopa’s “Embed Gallery” page by selecting MailChimp from the drop-down list of email providers. Don’t forget to set a custom thumbnail size, which your email recipients will see after receiving a message. They can click on it to view the video in their browser.
