The Sendspark LinkedIn Extension is designed to help you send video messages in LinkedIn with lightning speed.

With the LinkedIn extension, you can...

  • Record videos of yourself or your screen

  • Preview (and re-record) your videos

  • Insert videos into LinkedIn Direct Messages, InMail, and Sales Navigator

  • Receive real-time notifications when recipients engage with your videos

Before you get started:

Please install the Sendspark Chrome Extension to use the LinkedIn integration.

As long as you have the Chrome Extension installed, you’ll automatically be able to access Sendspark from LinkedIn.

1. Click the Sendspark Icon in LinkedIn

Create a new message in LinkedIn. You’ll see the Sendspark logo appear in the options at the bottom of your compose window. You'll see this in Direct Messages, Sales Navigator, and InMail.

Note: you must have the Sendspark chrome extension installed and be using a Chrome browser to see the Sendspark icon.

2. Record a New Video

Click Record new video.

This will launch the Sendspark Chrome Extension, so you can record a video of yourself or your screen.

Alternatively, you can choose to request a video, meet live, send a calendar scheduling link, insert your last recording, or view your video library on Sendspark.

3. Complete Recording

To end your video, click the Sendspark Chrome Extension icon on the top right of your browser.

This will complete your video recording, and launch a modal for you to preview your video before sharing.

4. (Optional) Edit Video Page in Sendspark

You can customize your video before sharing it by clicking Edit Page / Thumbnail.

This will open your video in a new window, where you can edit the video landing page.

Note: When you edit the page, you’ll leave LinkedIn and go to Sendspark. Now, instead of inserting your video in LinkedIn messages, you'll need to copy and paste your video into LinkedIn

If you want to instantly add a title, message, or call-to-action to your video without typing, make sure to create a template.

5. Insert Your Video in LinkedIn

Click Insert Video to place your video in your LinkedIn message.

This will automatically add a Sendspark video share link to your LinkedIn. Your recipients will see an image preview of your video, and be able to click to watch the full video.

Note: when using LinkedIn Sales Navigator or Recruiter, it LOOKS like video previews are not showing up for your viewers. But, in fact, video thumbnails DO show for viewers as long as they are 1st degree connections or have accepted your InMail.

Here is a video with more information.

Happy Recording!
