Now that your professionally produced video is live on Zillow, capitalize on this unique advertising opportunity and bring your story to life everywhere else you’re marketing online! Below are some tips on how and where to share your video outside of the Zillow network.


Post your video on your own YouTube Channel

Why? Although your video ad is hosted on the Zillow YouTube channel, we recommend that you post your video to your own YouTube channel, enabling it to show up in search results when someone looks you up on the Internet. In addition, uploading your video to your personal channel lets you control upload details, direct consumers back to your website, and share your video from your own page in order to track views, likes and comments

How? Creating and/or editing your email signature varies depending on email provider. Once you know how to edit your email signature, the easiest way to add your video is to create a hyperlink using an external source (like Microsoft Word or a new email draft), then copy/paste the hyperlink into your email signature settings. After you have finished your updates, send yourself a test email to ensure the hyperlink is active and links directly to your video.
