3 Ways to Embed Blab

1. Embedding Your Own Blab

This is typically going to be the way most people embed a Blab.

    2. Wait for the email to arrive from Blab

After you finish your Blab, you'll get an email with the embed code and files

The email will contain a video file, audio file and a unique embed code

  2. On your blog, switch to the HTML tab in your post
  3. Paste the embed code
  4. Click save

When your refresh your blog post, you'll see your embedded Blab video.

 

2. Embedding Someone Else's Blab

In order to embed someone else's Blab, you'll need their embed code.

If you don't have it, here's how to embed their Blab into your content.

  1. View the replay of a Blab you want to embed
  2. Copy your embed code
  3. On your blog, switch to the HTML tab
  4. Paste your embed code
  5. Copy their URL

    Replace the number in your embed code with their Blab URL

  6. Replace the number in your embed code with Blab embed code
  7. Click save

Now when you load your blog post, you'll see their Blab embedded in your blog post.

 

3. Embedding the Audio Version of Blab

A third way to embed a Blab is to embed the audio version.

This can also be a great way to provide a low-bandwidth way for readers to consume your Blab when they have a weak Internet connection.

If you want to, you can also use the audio version of your Blab to create an audio version of a blog post.

This way you give your readers choices on how they consume your content.

    1. Create and hold your first Blab
    2. Wait for the email to arrive from Blab

Wrap-up

Blab is an extremely versatile tool.

Right now, a lot of people are using it for marketing purposes; however, it can be extremely useful for businesses.

While Blab is currently in beta, these are just some of the ways to embed Blab on your blog or website to help expand the reach of your Blab and grow your subscriber base.

If you run into any issues when trying to embed Blab, you might also check out the tool, Embed.ly which you can use to create Blab cards.

While this process requires a few steps, the great thing about Blab is that although it's new, their CEO, Shaan Puri and CTO, Furqan Rydhan are clearly listening to its users.

I've had the opportunity to interact with them on some of the blabs I've participated on and they're always looking for feedback on ways they can improve.

This should be a good sign as Blab continues to grow.

As a Blab user, what type of Blab do you plan to embed on your site? Audio, video or both?
