How to Add a Video to Your Page

Videos are a great marketing medium, allowing you to share information visually and break down that digital divide. You can embed videos on your pages, posts, testimonials, and properties. Videos break up your written content. They are highly valued in a culture where videos are consumed at a rapid pace. Videos should be short, yet chocked full of helpful tips and details related to the page, posts, testimonial, or property it was added to.

First, you’ll want to film your video and add it to a hosting platform, such as Youtube or Vimeo. Youtube is the recommended platform. Youtube is owned by Google and gives you a bit more of an SEO edge. Be sure to use your keywords within the video’s description and title. Once you have uploaded your video, you’re ready to add it to your site.

Step 1: Copy the video’s URL

Locate your video on Youtube or Vimeo. At the top of the browser, copy the URL in the address bar.

Step 5: Update the page to save your changes
