Create a Video Page

How to build a video page for your WinRed account

Updated this week

This page is perfect for live-stream events, campaign announcement videos, direct-to-camera candidate videos, and more.

The guide below will help you get started with building video pages.

Page Setup

First, Navigate to the Pages tab, then click My Pages underneath. Next, click the green Create a Page button and select a Video Page from the dropdown.

Under Page Details, we only require three settings to be filled out to make the page live, as most are optional.

Internal Name: A non-public name for your page to help you keep track of it.
Public Title: The title of the page that donors can see.
Slug: This gives each page a unique URL that it lives at when you publish it.

Then, you can add a Page Header, which will appear inside a box at the top of the donation form, as shown below.

Next, enter your Call to Action. This field tells your donors why they should donate to you. Using the formatting options at the top, you can embed links, link out pictures, and customize the formatting of the copy. Text entered here will then appear below the video.

Above the disclaimer fields, you can add a Campaign or Source Code to the page.

If you add a value to the Source Code field, every donation made to that page will have that code associated with the charge in reporting. This is a great way to add another tracking layer to your pages.

WinRed already shows a disclaimer at the bottom of our pages, but if you need to add more, you can do so in the Disclaimer fields.

Creative & Layout

Here you can customize your video page with colors, images, and logos.

First, update your Form Colors. The Primary color adjusts the page's main buttons and links. The Secondary color adjusts the page's amount and checkbox buttons.

Then select if the donation form should be either a Multi-Step or Single-Step. A Single-Step form simplifies the donation experience in fewer clicks and is easier to complete. It will have all of the steps to donate on the initial donation page. A Multi-Step form cleanly displays form fields across separate pages, presenting the information one step at a time.

Form Position pertains to where the donation information is displayed on the page.

Next, you can upload a Donation Form Image, which will appear at the top of the donation form on your computer.

Once the choose image button is selected, you will able to upload a new image or search from the existing ones by the file name.

The Desktop Background Image can either be a GIF or a regular photo that will appear behind the form.

Below this is where you can enter the Video Embed Code. WinRed allows you to embed videos from Youtube, Rumble, Vimeo, or Facebook.

If you are embedding a video from Rumble, use the iFRAME code and not the JavaScript option.

Committees


You can split donations that are made through WinRed pages with other committees. Simply click Add Committee and search for the committee by name.

If using a vendor, you can also add Bill-Pay here. Click here to learn more.

Form Fields


The Form Fields tab is where you will decide which information you will ask your donors for, as well as editing the Donation Amount buttons, creating a Recurring Donation opt-in, and adding Money Pledges.

First, customize the amounts on the Donation Amount Buttons, as well as leave an "Other" amount for the donor to input their own donation amount. You can add or remove this by clicking the toggle next to it.

To add Amount Labels to the Donation Amount Buttons, click the gear icon in the right-hand corner. This will allow a text label to appear on the button on the donation page. Once you click that, you'll be able to edit the Amount Label:

Below the Donation Amount Buttons, you can also set the minimum and maximum donation amount on the specific page.

If you scroll down further, you'll be able to choose what information you'd like to gather from your donors, such as Shipping Details, Employer Information, or Employer Name, and Occupation.

If you are offering Merchandise on your pages and do not toggle the Shipping Address, the product will send to the address the donor has on file.

If you toggle the Mobile Field to Yes, you will be given to option to allow users to opt into receiving SMS Messages, display an SMS Disclaimer, and whether you'd like this to be a required field.

If you toggle the SMS Opt-In Disclaimer to yes, you'll be prompted to add an SMS Opt-in Call to Action and the Disclaimer.


You will see some additional fields below this like Enable Fundraiser ID, which allows for a Fundraiser ID, also known as Bundler ID, field to be visible on the donation page. Click here to learn about this feature.

Additionally, you will see the option to allow donors to cover processing fees so the donation goes to the committee directly.


Recurring Donations

One of the most powerful ways to increase online revenue is Recurring Donations. These are donations that automatically recur on a set interval (such as once a month). Building your recurring program is crucial because it’s a great way to raise money without additional donor asks. To set this up on your donation page, scroll to the top of the Form Fields tab and set the Recurring Donation Button option to Yes.

To edit the Advanced Recurring Settings, click the gear icon in the right-hand corner. The Advanced settings allow you to customize the interval if you'd like to use a check box vs a button and more! To read about this in more detail, click here.

Custom Fields


WinRed allows you to add Custom Fields to your pages. You can decide if you'd like to add an Existing or a New Custom Field. An Existing Custom Field is one that you have already created on another page.

When creating a new Custom Field, you will need to enter the following information:

You will need to give the field a name and designate where you'd like it to be positioned on the donation form (for example, before or after the Donation Buttons). Lastly select the Field Type.

The Field Types are listed below:

  • Text field - This is a regular text field that allows all characters.

  • Number field - This is a field that only allows numbers to be entered.

  • Text area - This is a field that allows donors to add longer comments.

  • Checkbox - This checkbox allows donors to accept a condition or disclaimer before donating. You can toggle whether checking this checkbox is required in order to process a donation.

  • Paragraph - This is simply some helpful text you can add throughout your form.

  • Hidden - This is an invisible field. Hidden fields are useful if you would like to set a default value for a field that donors can't edit. They can be prefilled via URL, like many other custom field types.

  • Select Dropdown - This field type allows donors to choose from a dropdown list of options.

  • Multiple Choice - This presents allows donors to select multiple options from one list of options.

  • Radio Buttons - Presents donors with a number of options to choose from but does not allow more than one option to be selected.

  • Text Field Toggle - This is a text field that appears after a donor has checked a checkbox.

Upsells

The Upsells tab allows you to dynamically redirect donors from a donation page to an upsell based on donor attributes through an Upsell Pathway. Or to group multiple Upsells together in an Upsell Flow.

Upsells appear after the initial donation flow to encourage your donors to donate more!

You can either create a new Upsell Pathway or Flow or add an existing one.

When creating a new Upsell, you will be given the following options. You can read more about the types of Upsells here.

Click into any of these and customize your upsell with images, call-out text, and much more! You can also append Bill-Pay and Money Pledges to your Upsells.


Confirmation

Here you can customize the message that will appear to your donors once they have completed their donation. You are also able to add a Custom Button to your page that will link out to a URL of your choosing, for example, back to your campaign website.

Lastly, you can also link out social media, such as your Facebook or Twitter, to be displayed to donors here as well.

Widgets

Under this tab, you can add different Widgets to your page. Widgets can be used to drive urgency, show impact, and increase donor conversion rates.

Advanced

Here you can add an Open Graph Image. An Open Graph Image is a picture that will be shown on social media when you post your page's link. The Open Graph defaults to the image below, but you can update that with your own image if you'd like.


Next, you can select a language for your Donation Page. Currently, we offer Spanish page translation for all the standard form text. You will need to translate custom text such as your Call to Action and Disclaimer.


If you scroll down, you will see an option to enable CAPTCHA. This is an extra layer of identity confirmation. You can turn this on by toggling this to Yes:

When you are finished, remember to click Save. You can always preview what your page looks like by selecting the View Page button, located at the top right-hand corner of your screen.

When you’ve made all your customizations on your page, head back to the Page Setup tab to set its status.

  • Live pages can be seen by anyone, meaning that they will show up when searched via Google, Bing, etc.

  • Draft pages can only be seen by logged-in members of your team.

  • Password-protected pages can only be seen by people who enter a password you set. (These are great for sending pages around for approval).

Duplicate Pages

If you would like to duplicate a page, simply head back to the My Pages tab, click the ellipses on the page, and choose Duplicate from the drop down menu.

Pages can also be duplicated within the page builder by selecting the Duplicate Page button underneath the internal page name.

QR Codes

Located under the title, you can generate a QR code for your page by clicking the button under the slug



CSS Editor

Customize your landing pages further with our Custom CSS editor, located at the bottom of the Advanced tab.


Note: you cannot edit the following on a WinRed landing page:

  • Donation button size

  • Remove an "other" field on a landing page

  • Overriding the copy on a Money pledge

  • Resizing a logo

  • Changing color of an upsell button
