Override URL/ Embed Code for PersistIQ

Generate URL and embed code for your images and videos that are compatible with PersistIQ and directly plug them into the Email builder on the PersistIQ platform. 

For our demonstration, we are sharing a personalised image in an email that hyperlinks to a video landing page.

Let’s begin by creating a new campaign. If you are new to creating Nexweave campaigns, you can have a look out our campaign documentation here
