After reading today’s post we believe that you will see how using AudioAcrobat not only makes the process of driving traffic to a specific online location through Video quick and easy, but also how the global coaching profession can benefit directly from this type of service.
If you’re looking to jump right in and create a custom brand for your Videos, skip to the Quick Steps below.
Need an account? Don’t be bashful, you can create an AudioAcrobat account for free; and as always, there is no long-term commitment.

Once you’ve created the graphic you wish to use as your custom brand, please continue on to the quick steps below.
1. Log In to your AudioAcrobat account
2. Select Create a Custom Player Theme for Audio or Video from the drop-down menu
Log In to your AudioAcrobat account
Select Create a Custom Player Theme for Audio or Video from the drop-down menu
At this point you will be on the New Player Theme page, where you will see the Player Preview selection. Click Video Player to preview how the theme will look when published.
As seen above, the Branding and Extras tab can be selected to revel options to include/remove both the AudioAcrobat Affiliate Link and a Custom Brand. Place a check mark in the Custom Brand check box to enable this feature.
Click the BROWSE button which appears to the right of Upload Brand Image: to browse your computer’s hard drive for the image you have (hopefully) created prior to beginning this tutorial.
While the image is uploading you should see something like what is shown above, with the selected file name and file size outlined to the right of the red/white X. Click the X to cancel your upload or wait until the upload completes.
Enter the URL you wish for your traffic to be redirected to when your Custom Brand watermark is clicked on in the Link URL field. If the watermark is clicked on in the Player Theme creation process, a pop-up will confirm which URL will be used once published ‘live’ on the Web.
Use the Image Size slider to increase/decrease the size of your watermark and use the Image Alpha slider to determine the transparency of your Custom Brand.
Once satisfied with how the Custom Brand will appear within the Player Theme, click the General Settings tab and give your new theme a specific Title + Description, such as: My Branded Video Theme or My Company’s Video Theme.
One last thing… make sure to press the Save Theme button before navigating away from this page.
Now, whenever you choose to publish your Video for the Web using Player Themes, your custom branded Player Theme will appear in the available themes drop-down menu!
