- Your video will be submitted for approval by our team. Note: videos containing URLs and contact details, slideshows of still images or poor quality imagery/audio will not be approved. Learn more about video vetting here.
- If your video is approved, you'll receive an Encore notification. If it is rejected you'll receive a notification and an email explaining how your video needs to be improved.
Note: if you have videos but don't yet have them on YouTube, you can learn how to create a YouTube account here and how to upload videos here.
Primary video & Video order
Once you've uploaded your videos, click and drag to change the order. The video in the top left corner will be marked 'Primary video'. This means it's the one which appears first when clients click on your video section on your profile.
An Unlisted Video is private, so customers will only see it if you send it as an attachment! 📎
To add an Unlisted Video, head to the Media tab of your profile and click +Add video.
Once you've clicked +Add Video, you can then choose whether you want the video to be Public or Unlisted.
(Don’t worry - you can change this at any time by clicking ‘Make Public’ on your video.)
And that’s it! Once it’s approved, you’re ready to share an Unlisted video with your customer ✉️
