19 Responses to How to add video to your Mailchimp newsletter

    • I gotta admit, I like Mailchimp. It does everything I need it to and has loads of cool features to help you make the most of your email list …. that and its free to use while you’re just getting started.

      • Thanks Meg, I finally got the video to show up, but there is all this junk next to it:

        ” target=”_self” style=”color: #EB4102;font-weight: normal;text-decoration: underline;word-wrap: break-word !important;”>Invalid URI supplied

        how do I get rid of that?

  1. Thanks dear. I was just thinking to add a URL link and allow users to click on it. But, your way is much better. It looks much more professional. I think I will try it on my campaign. I hope it works on my template.

    • Hi Jewel

      Unfortunately you can’t add videos themselves to emails. An email is quite a different beast from a website, and embedding videos really just doesn’t work as many email clients will just strip out the embedded video.

      There are a couple of services that will let you add video into emails … check out http://www.videoemail.com/ – but even they can don’t guarantee that all your subscribers will be able to see the video.

  2. Hi Meg
    Can you help? I’ve tried this so many times and it’s not working at all.

    I’m putting this in my email campaign

    *|YOUTUBE:[$vid=cITNveY-kig]|*

    (This is the URL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cITNveY-kig)

    ANd all that happens is I get all that text in the box and no image / link to youtube…? I’m getting so frustrated as everyone’s saying it’s so easy ;)
    Any ideas?
    thanks
    Fiona
