How do I add a video widget?

The Video widget allows you to upload a video to your site or display a video from YouTube, Vimeo or Dailymotion on your site. A short video can be the perfect way to communicate with your customers and show what your business has to offer, and is a great way to boost customer engagement and increase conversions. For issues with the Video widget, see this article here.

To add the widget, follow these steps below:

  2. Click and drag the Video Widget into your site 

Once you add the widget, you can then go ahead and upload the video through the content editor.

To access the content editor, right-click the widget, and click  Edit Content. You have the following options:

  • Click Upload Video and select the video you want to upload. You can upload up to 200MB in all formats. You can upload up to 100 videos per site.
