Disclaimer: The video will likely not show when you preview/send out and this is because personalized video is delivered through an iframe using the embed codes and vast majority of ESPs block iframes, due to the fact that they are a very easy gateway for phishing and other types of scams.

The work-around is for you to take a snapshot of the video with the play button, hyperlink it with the personalized video playback link and this will open up the personalized video on the browser when viewers click on it.

Follow the below steps to proceed:

Step 1. On the editor, Click Produce
