MailChimp Merge Tag

Mailchimp is a service that allows you to create email campaigns with its easy-to-use editor.

If you are linking videos into a MailChimp campaign, we'd recommend the following approach:

1. Make your video public by switching "Make video private" to "Off" in the individual settings for that video:

2. Locate the thumbnail link from your video's "advanced video links" section. It will be in the format http://view.vzaar.com/0000000/thumb; where 0000000 is replaced by your video's ID number.

3. Place the URL inside HTML image tag like so:

<img src="http://view.vzaar.com/000000/thumb" alt="Video thumbnail image" />

4. Wrap the image tags inside an anchor tag (link):

<a href="http://vzaar.com/videos/0000000">
<img src="http://view.vzaar.com/0000000/thumb" alt="Video thumbnail image" />
</a>

5. The result is a thumbnail, which links to the video's vzaar page.
