Explains how to set up the BombBomb integration and insert video messages into your email notifications
eWebinar's integration with BombBomb lets you insert video messages into your email notifications (registration confirmations, reminders, and follow-ups), whether that means importing an existing video from your BombBomb account or recording a new one on the spot.
Adding video messages in to your emails to registrants is a great way to add a human touch to them, which creates connection and builds trust. It can also save you valuable time, since recording a short video is often much easier than composing the same thoughts into a written email.
NOTE: For this integration to work, you must either use Chrome or turn on cross-domain cookies for BombBomb in Safari.

- Edit the eWebinar where you would like to add a video to its email notifications.
