SproutVideo websites come with different social sharing options built in, so you can be sure your video will always play in the timeline when you share it on your preferred networks. You can also use your SproutVideo site to drive fans and followers to your different social networks. Here are the steps to enable those different options:
Enable Social Sharing for Your Videos
Hover your cursor over the ‘Video Site’ tab at the top of the page, select ‘Theme Design,’ and then click on the ‘Social’ tab on the lefthand side of the Theme Editor. You can enable different social sharing options for your videos just by toggling the networks On or Off. The sharing options will appear automatically on your video landing pages. Make sure that your videos are set to ‘Public’ if you want them to be shared on social media. Select the networks you want to enable, and click ‘Publish Changes’ at the top righthand corner of the screen when you’re finished making changes.
Drive Fans and Followers to Your Social Media Pages
If you want to use your video site to grow your social following, enter the usernames for your social media accounts on the ‘Social’ tab while in the theme editor, and they’ll show up as links on your video site. They’ll appear in the header or footer of your site, depending on your theme. These social links drive followers and fans to your social networks.
Include your username, not the full URL of the social network. For example, if your Twitter page is ‘http://twitter.com/companyname’, you’ll only need to enter ‘companyname’ in the Twitter field.
