Copy and paste videos into emails to share with co-workers, customers, prospects, students, or anyone. 

At VidGrid HQ, we strive to make it as easy as possible for you to create and share videos. 

Today, we are announcing a first-of-its-kind feature for you to send videos by email: Copy GIF.

VidGrid GIF Preview


With Copy GIF, you can easily copy a preview of the first 5 seconds of your video, and paste it in the body of your email. A video "play" button will automatically appear over your GIF with a link to your video, so your recipients know that they will be directed to a video when they click. 

Whether you are sending out videos for sales, marketing, customer support or education, you will be shocked to see how many people click on your GIF preview (as opposed to a simple URL link). 

This will work with almost all email senders, including Google, Hubspot, SalesLoft, Mailchimp, and more. Please contact us if you have questions about your email sender.
