The best to increase views and engagement of your videos is to share with with your audience and make it accessible across channels. Because interactive video allows for a personalized, dynamic experience with data collection that’s beyond the capabilities of a regular video, there are a few special ways to share your video to ensure your interactive features work effectively on your channels.
Below is a list of ways you can share your Mindstamp interactive videos with your audience.
Once you publish your video, you can copy the share link to share with your audience, post on social networks, send around internally, or just about anywhere else you can share a link. This is the simplest and quickest way to share your interactive video.
You can embed your video to bring a white-labeled, interactive experience to your own site. Simply copy the inline or pop-out embed code from the Share button on the video. The code will work on any site that accepts iframe embeds or custom HTML. Please be sure to choose one of these options rather than a "video" embed as most site creators and LMS only accept Youtube videos through this method.
For private, secure video sharing, you can invite viewers to watch your Mindstamp video and force them to verify their email before they are allowed access. This is the most secure way to share a video on Mindstamp. Simply press "Share" and then "Invite Viewers" to start inviting.
Groups are a way to share videos, data, and access control within Mindstamp. You can create a group and add members to it to give them automatic access to the videos within it.
Video is a great way to engage followers on social media since social video generates 1200% more shares than text and image content combined. Different from website videos, social media requires you to upload your videos rather than embed them. This means Mindstamp interactive videos on social media are unable to function similarly to an embedded website video and will not allow users to engage with the interactive features.
However, if you are interested in social sharing on a site like Facebook or Instagram, we recommend you embed your video to a webpage or landing page and link to that URL in your social post. Or you can create a short video clip of your interactive video with a call to action for your audience to experience it first-hand. You can do this by creating a screen recording, using a platform like QuickTime Player, of your Mindstamp video and then uploading it to your social post with a link to the full video.
Here’s an example of how we used QuickTime Player to create a screen recording of our Mindstamp interactive video “in action” to share on social media:
