How can your small business use video in email marketing?

Rather than embedding the video, include a thumbnail in the body of your email. Do this to prevent your email from getting caught in spam filters. Encourage your readers to click to view, and they will be taken to your landing page on YouTube or your website. Yay – you have a click-through!

Email is not dead; in fact, claims that an average of 306.4 billion emails were sent and received every day during 2020. Add video for a winning combination.
