STEP ONE – ADD A VIDEO  Once you are signed in, adding a video is simple. You can add your videos from many different locations such as YouTube, Instagram and Dropbox. You can also upload directly from your own computer.

When uploading videos from YouTube you can either paste a video link directly into the input box or perform a search directly here on Taggled. If you do decide to perform a search we will show you what we think are the most relevant videos for your search.

To add a video you have searched for simply click on the video thumbnail (you will be shown a preview to confirm this is the video you would like to add), click the button below the video and you will be redirected to the video management for the video.
You can add as many tags as you like to your video and the types of tags you add are totally up to you.

The tag options are 'Information', 'Maps', 'Music', 'Social Media', 'Products' and 'Websites'.

When you go to add a tag think about the placement of the tag within the video. For example, if you add a product tag you will want that tag to appear close to where the product appears. Also think about the length of time you'd like the tag to appear for. You can have the tag appear throughout the duration of the video, but many people prefer to show a tag for between five and ten seconds.

Use this tag to draw attention to products within your video. Product tags allow you to make your videos shoppable.

To add a product tag select the 'Products' option from the tagging list. Simply copy and paste the product URL into the designated space and additional information like image url, product title and product description will pull through. These can be changed manually if you would like amend any of the information.

On occasion you may find that the website the product has been taken from does not automatically allow Taggled to pull the extra information through. To make life easier for viewers and get the most out of tagging, we recommend that you copy and paste an image URL, type in a short title and write in a brief description of the product.

TOP TIP! When adding a product tag make the tag name a call to action, such as “Buy Aussie Miracle Shampoo”.

Want to tag a social media account for a person/company/group in the video? With Taggled you can add a social media tag, linking so a specific Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn account.

To add a people tag select 'Social Media' option from the tagging list. Type in the name of the person. If you know the persons Twitter account name add this first. We will then find out their name and get a picture for them with no extra effort by you.

You can then add links to their Facebook or websites. When adding a Facebook account please ensure that you use the full profile link for example: http://facebook.com/username

Whether you want to link to an online clothes store, a wikipedia page or a personal blog, the website tag is perfect for linking to specific webpages within the video.

To add a website tag select the 'Website' option from the tagging list. Simply copy and paste the website URL into the designated space and you'll see additional information pulled through from the website, including an image URL and description. If this does not automatically happen then copy and paste an appropriate image URL and a short description manually.

Sometimes you may want to tell viewers where the video is filmed, whether it be at a luxurious five star hotel in Italy or a surf shop in California. When you add a location Taggled pulls through an interactive Google map for your viewers.

To add a map tag select the 'Maps' option from the tagging list. You can now search for the location you want to add. You can change the zoom levels and coordinates of the location either manually or by interacting with the map.

If music is featured in your video then you may want to add a music tag, linking to where the track can be purchased from the iTunes store. Whether you've used a backing track or are featuring live music, adding a music tag can be a fun thing to do.

To add a music tag select the 'Music' option from the tagging list. Type in the name of the artist and song title. Taggled will search iTunes for you and additional information will be pulled through.

On occasion you might want to display a little prompt in the video or a subtitle. You can do this with the information tag. These tags only allow for plain text input, however when viewers click on them they will be prompted to start a conversation.

To add an Information tag select the 'Information' option from the tagging list. Simply enter whatever text you would like displayed and then continue with the adding tag steps.
  STEP THREE – REVIEW THE VIDEO Now that your video is complete with tags and fully interactive it's time to review your work and make sure everything looks the way it should.

Just like you would re-read a piece of text you've written, you'll want to review your video and make sure all the tags look the way you want them to. The best way to do this is by using the 'Review Video' option above the video – this will allow you to watch the video as a viewer would see it.

If you watch the video and are not happy with tag placement or tag timings, you can manipulate these using the Tag Timeline below the video. If you'd like to make the tags shorter or longer in length then simply extend or retract the tags in the timeline using your mouse.

To change the positioning of the tags simply move the tags within the video using your mouse. To make more advanced changes to your tags, such as the name, description or image, then simply click on any of the tags to the right-hand-side of the video.

To alter the title, description and privacy settings of the videos go to the 'Video Information' tab below the video.

Top Tip! Make sure to check the images for your product tags are high resolution images so each product is seen in the best way possible.
 STEP FOUR – SHARE THE VIDEO Once you are completely happy with your tagged video, it's time to share it out to the masses. Select 'Share' and copy and paste the embed code to embed it into a website or blog. There are a number of embed options so take advantage of these.

Top Tip! If your video is product orientated then be sure to embed your video with a product stream as this will drive sales considerably.

REMEMBER! If you've uploaded your video to Taggled from Youtube be assured that views via the Taggled player are included in your Youtube views. Not only that, if you have monetized your Youtube with adverts, those will still appear. You can still continue to upload to Youtube and then to Taggled. But remember, if you embed the Youtube only version of your video rather than the Tagged video, the people visiting your site will not see the tags. So basically, it makes sense to embed the interactive video!

Embedding you interactive video on your website or blog will help you get the views and reach you want.

You will also want to share your video to your social media feeds, including Twitter and Facebook ,where followers and fans can enjoy a fully interactive video experience.

When you share the interactive video to Twitter viewers can watch and shop the video directly from the Twitter feed.

Just like Twitter, when you share the video on Facebook, viewers can watch and shop your video direct from their Facebook feed.

Top Tip! Not only can you share the whole video but you can also share individual tags via social media – perfect if you want to draw attention to a specific person or product within a video. Just go to the tag you would like to promote, click on the share button and copy and paste the share link for that tag.

REMEMBER! There's nothing stopping you from sharing both your Youtube video and your interactive video across social media. Offering an interactive version of your video alongside your standard videos on Youtube, Vimeo or other video platform will only increase the visibility and online popularity of the video.
