Why add videos in magazines?

Here’s a list of reasons why you should add videos in your online magazines:

  • Videos educate. They help people understand and remember things better.
  • Videos are appealing. They entertain and inspire.
  • They provide context, having the power to show loads of information about people, places and products in just a minute.
  • They help you sell: 96% of consumers find videos helpful when making purchase decisions online. (Retail Touchpoints)

How to add videos in magazines

This tutorial involves using Flipsnack. Honestly it cannot get any easier than that. Upload your files as PDF/ JPG or create a project from scratch. To add videos you need to find the content editor. (If you’re creating a flipbook from scratch you’re already there.) Look for the Video icon and drag and drop it into your publication. Set the Youtube or Vimeo url of the video. That’s it!

    • Hi Jess, you can’t create videos in FlipSnack, but you can insert Youtube and Vimeo videos in your publications. That is what this blog post is about.
