Thursday Thought: Can I Embed a Video on My Web Scheduler?

Happy Thursday everyone! 

For today's Thursday Thought, have you ever wondered if you could embed a video on your web scheduler? If you have but weren't sure, the answer is "Yes!" with our online scheduling system.

I'm sure you've heard of the idea that a picture convey a great message, and with video, you can clarify your brand's values, provide a trailer for your class, explain a service, offer a preview for a service, and more. There are many different videos that you can create and add to your web scheduler to provide a better understanding for the services, classes, or courses that your business offers.

Here is a list of 7 types of videos you can create and use and its benefits:

  1. Thank you video (a more personal thank-you to clients for booking an appointment or signing up for a class)
  2. Brand video ( a video that provides insight about your brand's values and goals)
  3. About/Trailer video for a service, class, or course (a video that provides a preview of your service, class, or course)
  4. Staff biographical video (a video that introduces a staff member, their work, experience, and goals)
  5. Client/student testimonial or user-generated videos (can be a compilation of testimonials to let clients or students know how valuable your services or classes are)
  6. Screen-capture video answering FAQs (a video that allows you to answer FAQs in person)
  7. Slideshow video (a video that showcases a house, apartment, product, tour location, etc.)

And you may think of others that could be added to this list. Let's say for example that you want to embed a personal thank-you for your clients who book an appointment with you - here's how you can do that:

Step 1 - Once you've created your video, you can upload it to YouTube or even Facebook, and then get the embed code from there. (For any questions on how to upload your video to YouTube, follow this link. For any questions on how to upload a video to Facebook, follow this link.
