Not only does adding a video to your website increase your conversion rate, but it boosts your SEO rankings. You don’t even have to be Spielberg to get started!
Here’s how to do it in your JigsawBox:
Videos cannot be uploaded directly to JigsawBox, they must be hosted on a video storage site like Screencast, YouTube, Amazon S3, etc. You may use any service to store your video that provides you with embed code.
Simply click the HTML button in edit mode and paste in your embed code. You will NOT see your video in Edit view, so placement should be made on the HTML side of the window. To see your video, save your module. Then go back to the My Modules page, click Edit next to the module where you just added your video. When the edit view appears, click Preview. You will now see how your video will be displayed to your clients. It will play right in your JigsawBox account and your users can watch the video right there without ever leaving JigsawBox!
Great tip: this technique displays a video player right in your JigsawBox. If you also wish to provide your clients with an option to download your video, you will need to obtain a direct link from your video host and add this link to your module. If you do offer a download link you may wish to let your clients know that to download they will need to right-click the link and select Save Target As or Save Link As if using a PC or if using a MAC to hit the Control key and select the Save Target As or Save Link As option.
You can upload display any types of videos using these directions…
- Recorded webinars
- A tour of your package
Tip: If you want to create a short video showing items on your screen, such as a tour of your package, you can set-up a free account at Jing.com. This site allows you to record 5-minute videos of your screen for free! You can then take those videos and upload them to your video storage site of choice and add it to your module.
With the ability to embed video within your modules, you have endless possibilities. Remember the conversion rate study, which translates to more profits!
