Why Send Videos In Giveffect Emails

Video is the best way to connect with your community from home. Video emails get 2-3x the increase in engagement as text + images emails — and it's easy to see why! Whether you're sharing videos of yourself, board members, or beneficiaries, videos go above and beyond to deliver a human touch and connect authentically.

Will Embedded Videos Play In-Email for Recipients?

Embedded videos play in-email for recipients who are using email clients that support video. (See an up-to-date list of email clients that support video).

If your recipient's email client does not support video, instead of the embedded video, they will see an animated GIF preview of your video, and be able to watch the full video in their browser. Still a great user experience!
