I get this question asked a lot and it is a great way to enhance your website! For todays example, we are going to add the YouTube video by KWRI with Jay Papasan of “Why some houses sit while others sell” to our Sell tab of our eEdge website.
First, sign into your myKW.KW.com intranet and go the “Manage eEdge Website” under the myMarketing section of your eEdge. We are going to add a video in the “Sell” tab of your eEdge website so go to the “Sell Text” on the left side of the screen. Scroll down to the bottom of the edit box and click on the box to put your curser at the end of the text. Press enter to add a space and that is where are are going to add our video.
Now, on another tab or window to to the website that has the video you want to enter. For this one we are going to YouTube.com and search for the video. Once you find the video you want click on the “Share” button below the video and then “Embed”. Now select the “Use old embed code” and unselect the “Show suggested videos when the video finishes”. You can also change the size of the video box by selecting the drop down or choosing custom to add your own size. Copy all of the code in the box above.
Go back to your myKW.KW.com website and you should be on the same place where you left your curser at the bottom of the “Sell Text” box. The most important step to this is to click the HTML button at the top of the edit box. If you skip this step it WILL lock up this page if you try to insert HTML code to the regular box and save it! Once the HTML box opens, it will look like garbage, but scroll to the bottom and “paste” the embed code from YouTube. Click “Update” and it will take you back to the edit box. You will only see a yellow box where the video will show on the website. You can now center the video or change the alignment by putting your curser next to the yellow box and selecting the alignment at the top. Click the “Save” button and go to your website to make sure it shows the way you want it to. To see our finished product from this example, click here. Now you have embed a video into your eEdge website!
