How to Share Dynamic Videos in Smartlead
Create your dynamic video in Sendspark (👉 full tutorial on how to make dynamic videos)
Click "Share Campaign" and search for "Smartlead" — you'll notice there are two snippets that show up here.
Go into Smartlead, and create your email campaign
Upload your contacts CSV to Smartlead. Make sure you are using the same contacts that you've added to to your Sendspark dynamic video campaign. If you'd like to be extra certain, you can click "Download CSV" in Sendspark to get the list of contacts you've generated videos for, and then upload this file into Smartlead.
In Smartlead, create the email that you want to send your video out in. Add any content that you would like!
Go back to Sendspark, and click on the first Smartlead snippet: Smartlead: (Image URL)
Go back into Smartlead, and paste the snippet you've copied from Sendspark directly into the URL field in your email. You'll now see the preview for your video!
Note: because no contact has been selected yet, you'll just see the "fallback version" of your dynamic video: the camera-only video of yourself. Once you start previewing contacts, this thumbnail will update to be the personalized video for each contact.
Go back to Sendspark, and click on the other snippet: Smartlead: (Video URL)
Return to your Smartlead email, and highlight the image. Now, add a hyperlink to the image, and paste the video URL.
Note: You are essentially making your video thumbnail "clickable." So, when viewers get the video email, they will see an image personalized for them, and then click on a link personalized for them to watch the full personalized video in their web browser.
That's all you need to do to embed a dynamic video in a Smartlead campaign. All of the viewers you enroll will see the dynamic video that you generated for them in Sendspark when you created the video. You can preview your email for different contacts to be sure :)
