Using Gleam to Drive More Video & Stream Engagement

Learn how to use Gleam to drive more views and engagement on your videos and livestreams.

We’ve been super busy this month adding new entry methods to Gleam. One of which agencies have been asking us for some time now.

You can use ask users to watch a video from either YouTube or Vimeo as part of an entry requirement into a competition/giveaway.

Simply add Visit YouTube Chanel as an entry option in the Gleam backend & put in the URL of your YouTube channel.

This is a great way to expose your YouTube channel to users and encourage them to check out your videos.

Vimeo works in much the same way, however they don’t give us a way to hide the controls via the API. So users are able to skip through the videos if they want.

This is a fantastic entry method for agencies or advertisers who want to get more exposure to their videos in a scalable way. Put a little Gleam into your next campaign 🙂
