An Engagement Hack Inspired By Images -
Taken to New Heights with Video.

Auto-play has been disabled globally...

A real curveball. If the past few years has taught us anything, it’s that change should be expected and we have no choice but to adapt and grow.

Using a still thumbnail image for your videos just doesn’t cut it. People scroll STRAIGHT PAST your videos now, because they look like a normal image and that’s your opportunity gone.

So how do we fix this? How do we capture the attention of our visitors to get them to click play on our videos?

We took the exact same concept that every marketer and business uses for advertising…

You know what I’m talking about, right?

Boring, dull images not getting clicks anymore on Facebook etc.

They simply replace their images with engaging, eye-catching moving images/GIFs/videos and BAM – their clicks go up, their costs go down and sales rise. Remember the boom of cinemagraphs?

The concept was simple… Just apply this to our videos.

We're bringing engagement hacking to video!

Playboost supplies the technology your customers need to bridge the gap between increasing their video views and the auto-play apocalypse.

Mario & I love this. It's a big problem with mass appeal, with a very simple solution that works.

For the first time ever, your customers can easily apply captivating animated thumbnails over their "auto-paused" videos to not only capture their visitors attention, but call them to action to click and watch.

Click to Unmute Click to Unmute

Even more impressive - WITHOUT them having to upload their video to our server, pay expensive hosting fees, hiring expensive developers and designers to create custom scripts or affect their videos loading.

Simply paste in their existing video link, design their engagement 'hack' experience and place one line of code.

Here's how playboost guides you to more views on your videos, in just 3 steps.

Enter Video URL

Select your video hosting platform, and enter your direct link to your video. We support YouTube, Vimeo, Wisita, Vidello and Amazon s3 hosted videos.

Drag 'n Drop

PlayBoost allows you to create an attention-grabbing thumbnail that is going to capture attention and call people to action to click the play button.

Copy & Paste... Done!

Use our simple-to-place script and done. Just watch your video views increase. No switching out video scripts!

The rest of the story? Just more views on marketing videos. What more could we want? :)

Here’s a quick summary of everything your customers can do inside of playboost...

Add Any Video

Worried about having to re-upload everything? Don’t! We don’t require you to do anything but insert a video link. We support YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia, Amazon s3 and Vidello videos.

1-Click Install

Nothing is worse than something that is hard to install, right? No technical skills required! Paste our tiny line of code and playboost automatically detects your video on your page FOR YOU!

Customize Everything

Add just about anything that is going to capture attention, and customise that. Colors, animations, size, opacity, etc. We make things irresistible for viewers.


Use your default thumbnail as a background or customize your video using our library of overlays and patterns to make your video stand out more.

Images and GIFs

Upload your own, or search our library of images and GIFs that play over your video thumbnail (…did I hear a “hallelujah” in the back?)

Text Call to Action

Marketing 101, right? Add a call-to-action. Nothing increases plays like telling your visitors to ‘Click Play’ :).


Emojis are the engagement tool of the decade. Emojis are so recognisable that they are almost unavoidable to the eye when placed on a page.

Benefits for Your Subscribers

Enjoy More Views by Creating Irresistible Eye-Catching Animated Video Thumbnails in Minutes

Never worry about visitors scrolling straight past your video thinking it’s just an image. With our custom overlays, easily create wildly engaging thumbnails that are unmissable on your website and landing pages.

Boost Leads & Sales Without Creating More Videos

Enjoy more leads and sales from your existing videos thanks to your new unmissable experience that playboost places for you (...that people otherwise would've been scrolling straight past).

Turn Visitors into Engaged SUPER Fans

When you turn a boring video into an exciting unmissable experience, you make viewers want to watch your videos to the end… which means they’re more likely to purchase something from you now and in the future. It's MUCH easier to increase video marketing when there is a direct ROI.

Don’t Waste Your Video Production Resources

Spending days or weeks and hundreds or thousands on a video only to find that people are scrolling straight past it not knowing it’s a video.
Using playboost, you can have peace of mind knowing every video is getting the attention it deserves.

Never Worry About Autoplay Nightmares

The auto-play disabling on all major browsers was a kick in the teeth to all marketers but with playboost you never have to worry about the downward curve of decreasing views again.

Keep All Browsers & Search Engines Happy

Using custom scripts that override the disabling of autoplay can get you penalized.
Playboost’s compliant approach keeps search engines and browsers happy by creating a pleasing experience for everyone.

Never Re-Edit Another Video Again

Needing to create videos and then re-edit and re-upload for auto-play issues is time consuming.
Using playboost, you don’t have to re-edit or re-upload anything. We automatically detect your video on your pages!

Save Money & Time on Developers And Designers

Once you’ve got a video ready to go, you'd usually need to contact a designer to create your call to action and then hire a developer to make it animated over your video so people actually see it and know it’s a video they need to click-to-play. And you're still not getting all the cool extra premium customizations you can simply drag & drop using playboost. This not only costs you money, but you need to wait for days, maybe weeks at a time for each video.
Using playboost, you skip that entire time window and don’t need to pay anything to any designers or developers.

Affiliate Promotion Terms & Conditions

Read carefully before joining this program. You agree that you are NOT allowed to do the following things if approved for the affiliate program. By doing any of the following, you will be terminated from the program and agree that any commissions will be forfeited without recourse:

  1. You are NOT permitted to conduct e-mail promotions in a 3rd party system - all e-mail contacts MUST be your OWN opt in e-mail list. You cannot buy solo ads, use safe lists, use spam or anything similar.
  2. You must NOT run "negative" PPC or iframe domain campaigns such as "Product name/author name scam" or any other method to attract controversial click-through rates that an ordinary person would deem to portray a negative view of the product. This creates a very bad image for our company and the individuals featured in the products and you will be terminated from the program instantly.
  3. You should avoid using the raw affiliate link if you can. All affiliates are encouraged to utilise redirect links in e-mails and website campaigns (such as bonus pages) and not the direct affiliate link. This increases conversions for everyone involved (however the choice is up to you).
  4. You cannot earn commission on your own purchase. Any 'self-purchase' commission may be nullified or held back.
  5. iFrames, review sites and cloaked domains are permitted as long as they do not contain offensive or negative domain URLs or content.

Please describe briefly how you will be promoting and any links to your own websites or social media profiles will help your chances of being approved. We do not approve any affiliates with a refund rate >10%.
  7. We run a legitimate business, which means that we always correctly illustrate and represent our product/s and their features and benefits to the customer. Please make sure you do the same. Anyone found using misleading claims, inaccurate information or false testimonials (or anything that does not comply with FTC guidelines) will have their affiliate account revoked immediately.
