I was trying to increase sales for one of my gigs, “Draw a completely original pen and ink illustration,” so I added a short video with my portfolio. Much to my surprise, instead of bringing more traffic, views and sales of the gig plummeted.
Thinking that the opening image was turning people off, I tried to change the preview image for the video. But when I used the Set Preview function, nothing changed. I finally removed the video altogether.
Has anyone else had these issues with a video showcase?
