Increase engagement, add dynamics, and boost sales by adding Tolstoy’s Shoppable videos to your email campaigns.

Before you begin:

There are three types of videos that you can share:
1. Swipeable - (Shoppable video feed) transform your videos into a dynamic shopping experience by tagging products.

2. Branching - (Interactive video) creating videos that include Calls-To-Action (CTAs). Guide your audience through a personalized journey by enabling them to make choices within the video.

3. A single video - for a straightforward approach, select the Branching format and upload a single video.

Here are the steps:

  1. Go to Offsite - > Click New Tolstoy -> Choose between Swipeable or Branching.

  2. For Shoppable video feed, tag products by clicking the search icon and choosing the product/(s) to tag.

  3. Once done, click Publish.

  4. Go to the Email tab. Then select your email distribution system. Add tracking if necessary, then copy code and paste it into your tool.
