SHARING YOUR VHX PROJECT IN A FACEBOOK Status Update

When you post a VHX link on Facebook, it will pull in the Product artwork and description and link out to the page. It might take a minute for the product image to appear, but once the shared content is posted, the product artwork should appear.

NOTE:

We do not currently play trailers on Facebook as we found it does not help conversion. People may watch your trailer, but they will rarely buy it. If they click on the link and go out to your site, they are more likely to convert.


ADDING YOUR VHX LINK TO YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE

Don’t waste an opportunity to promote your VHX site! We highly recommend adding a link in the About section so that users always know how to find your VHX project.
