You can embed an inline video anywhere on your site to give viewers the ability to click into more videos that are part of a collection.

Inline videos are a great way to swap out static photos for engaging videos - doubly so when they actually inspire interactivity with the ability to click into a specific element featured in the video.

If you want your videos to just organically appear to be part of your webpage content, your best format bet is going to be inline videos.

Pro tips for Inline Displays:

  • Go for multiples: You can add more than one inline video per page. Point to a single video to focus your message, or link to a multi-video collection to drive home more insight.

  • Get flexible with your design: The beauty of inline videos is they can be placed anywhere on any page. Drop audiences into an interactive queue of videos of your choice - from UGC to demos - without taking up space.

Make the user journey as informative as possible by incorporating in-line demo videos. These can showcase how a product works, its key features, or how to assemble it, all of which can be navigated easily with the widget's arrow buttons.

User-generated content

Answer common questions about your products by hosting FAQ videos via the in-line widget. It's a dynamic way to provide valuable information without navigating away from the product page.

Product recommendations

If you've got items that pair well together, why not feature them in an in-line video? A quick recommendation video can guide viewers to related products, increasing both customer satisfaction and average order value.

Team bios

Introduce your team to your audience by featuring short bio videos using the in-line widget. It adds a personal touch and allows visitors to get to know the people behind the brand. Plus, you can layout your bios as a grid of interactive videos, instead of static headshots and written bios.

If you sell products that are often compared to competitors', why not tackle it head-on? Use in-line videos for comparative reviews to show how your product stacks up, making the choice simpler for your customers.
