Waddell & Reed Embed Videos SOP

Option 1:

Please see our steps below for how we embed videos to websites through Facebook. Can you share with support if this comes up?

  • Create a Facebook Status Update to accompany your video. Examples:
    • Check out this video and get to know me a little better!
    • Ever wonder what makes me tick? Watch this video and get to know me a little better.
    • What do I like to do on weekends? Watch and find out!
  • Upload your video directly to your Facebook Business Page and use your compliance approved status update.
  • Once your video is live on Facebook, click on your video title in Facebook and click on the ellipsis "..." in the top right hand corner.
  • Click Embed and copy the entire iframe code from Facebook.
  • Open up your approved W&R Website editor and go to the page you would like to add the video (e.g., your home page).
  • Click Source in the editor and paste in the iframe code above your text.
  • Save the page changes, preview the site and submit to compliance.
