How to Share Your StoryXpress Videos

Sharing the Video URL

How do you share your YouTube videos? Well, commonly, you share the YouTube URL, right?

You can share your StoryXpress videos pretty much how you share your YouTube videos,

And, it's one of the fastest ways to share your video. Here’s how you can quickly copy the URL of your StoryXpress video.

If you want to see how the video page will look, you can catch a quick preview by clicking on the "Preview" button, like this:

This will lead you to the video page [in a new tab] that looks something like this:

And yes, you may also copy the URL from the video page itself, as indicated above.

Once you have copied the URL, feel free to share this link the way you want.

Email it to your team, share it on LinkedIn, tweet it to your followers, or text it to your sister.

That link will land your viewers on a page that looks something like this:

Don’t like the way this page looks?

StoryXpress lets you customise your video page, here is a complete guide.

Exploring Other Sharing Options

Copying the link directly is one of the easiest ways to share your videos.

However, it’s not the only way.

Clicking on the ‘Share’ button will help you see the multitude of sharing options available.

As you click on the “Share” button, you see this.

Let’s see one after the other how each of these work and which option to choose when.

Sharing Your Videos to Social Media

Just like a direct link, sharing videos socially is a great way to get some easy plays, and get your brand out there.

With StoryXpress, it's super easy to share your videos to Facebook, LinkedIn, Slack, Twitter and YouTube.

All of these seamlessly integrate with StoryXpress, thus making it easier for you to share your videos.

Let's see how you can share your videos on various social media handles.

Click on the icon of the social media channel that you’d like to share your video to:

Sharing on Facebook

To share your video directly to a Facebook page, you must first integrate your StoryXpress account with the relevant Facebook account.

In case you haven’t done that already, here’s the guide.

Once integrated, you’d see the list of pages associated with that Facebook account. Use the drop-down to select the page you want to post your video to.

You can also write the caption for your Facebook video, right in the StoryXpress dashboard.

If you want to post the video natively on Facebook, you must check the option to “Upload Video Natively” while posting.

Not sure what native uploading means? Well, if you upload a video natively, it’d play in Facebook’s native video player.

Here’s how it’d look:

In case, you don’t share the video natively, it gets shared as a URL with a thumbnail on Facebook, clicking on which the prospect lands on your custom video page by StoryXpress.

Here’s how this looks:

Sharing on Twitter

Use the Twitter icon to share your video to Twitter. But, before that, you must integrate your StoryXpress account with Twitter.

While sharing, you may write a caption from the StoryXpress dashboard.

Next, you have the option to either share the video natively or just as a link.

Once done, hit ‘Post Tweet’ and your video would be posted.

While sharing, you may write the title and description for the YouTube video.

Sharing Your Videos in Email

Sharing your videos in emails can not only make your emails more interactive but also drastically help boost your click-through-rate.

Here's a quick overview of how to share your videos in email.

Click on “Email Embed” to get a trackable email embed code for your StoryXpress videos.

When you click on “Email Embed”, you’d see this box where you have to enter the email address of the prospect:

Allowing Viewers to Share Your Videos

Well, sometimes you never know where your video ends up and how. We suggest that you turn on sharing settings and let your viewers share your video.

Give your viewers the ability to share or download your videos and let the word spread.

You may allow all visitors to download your videos from your StoryXpress media page (like we did for this video here).

When allowed, the viewers will see this option on the media page, and click on it to download the video.


You may also allow the users to share your video or embed it.

That’s all.
