No Material Connection Disclosure
My MailChimp Newsletter has definitely become one of the best ways I have to stay connected with my Readers and Followers outside of my site. I can send them updates, reminders and even exclusive content. I have fun each week customizing, writing, designing and selecting content – always trying to make the experience a bit different from the last. As a Vlogger this means including either my latest YouTube video or even a favorite from a fellow YouTuber I came across during the week through my YouTube Channel Hop. I want to show you how MailChimp has made doing it so easy!
These steps are given for MailChimp Drag & Drop Newsletter Templates
♦ Click the Design Tab of your Newsletter Editor and from there on the right side of the screen you will see the Content Boxes you can drag & drop into your Newsletter.
♦ Select the Video Box
♦ Drag & Drop it to the position you would like it to be within your Newsletter
♦ Once you have dropped it in place you have the option to edit the box.
♦ Insert the URL for the YouTube Video you wish to include.
♦ MailChimp will generate a preview image from that URL based on the Thumbnail set for YouTube.
♦ If you would like a different image you have the option to replace or edit the image.
♦ It is here that you can also add a title for your Video Box…the font and style control are very similar to that of a WordPress Post.
That’s It! Now when you send out your Newsletter your Readers will have a preview image to whatever YouTube video you wish to share that is clickable directly from your Newsletter!
