Curious about how to add Zight content to your marketing campaign? Did you know that including a video in an email can lead to open rate increases of 6%? Read on to learn more about how you can use this tool!

There are two ways you can embed a gif, screenshot, or static frame of your video in your email:

1. Share the content with our Gmail Integration

To share content in Gmail and see your link change from just a link, into a magical expanded content experience, like this:

You'll need to install Zight Gmail integration which is enabled using our Chrome Extension. The Chrome Extension is basically 'waiting' for you to paste a Zight link in Gmail, and when it sees one, it converts it into a better-embedded thumbnail experience.

How do I make my content expand in Gmail?

  1. Install the Zight Chrome Integration
  2. Make sure to sign in!
  3. Paste your Zight URL into your Gmail compose window and it will automatically expand to display an embedded thumbnail. 

2. Drag the content from your Zight app into your email

You can share content in Gmail by just dragging the content from your Zight application, as shown below:

And you’re all set! Now you’re able to reap the benefits of an embedded video.
