The second option requires at least a basic understanding of how HTML embed codes work. It’s not complicated, so don’t be scared off, but it’s also not copy and pasting an embed code from YouTube. You’re essentially creating your own embed code.
You start with the following HTML5 code as a template:
<video width="320" height="240" controls="controls">
<source src="movie.mp4" type="video/mp4" />
Now, follow the steps above on getting the link to the video. Then, where you see “movie.mp4,” you’ll want to replace this with that link. For example: https://www.dropbox.com/s/os60r63ogwfl408/your_video_here.mp4.
Next, you’ll want to adjust your width & height. You’ll want to use dimensions that best fit within your site. I use this handy little chart to help me figure out the best size to ensure maximum size compatibility.
When you’re all done, your embed code should look something like this:
<video width="512" height="288" controls="controls">
<source src="https://www.dropbox.com/s/os60r63ogwfl408/your_video_here.mp4" type="video/mp4" />

Make sure your long term strategy is tied into your short terms tactics.
Tactic - method or technique to achieve a immediate short term gain, run ads, sales calls etc.
Strategy- A carefully defined detailed plan to achieve a long term goal. The overall position you would like to achieve.
So not knowing your long term strategy.. I would venture to focus on having your core customers drive that growth.
Referral programs for existing members to recruit new members get discounts / months off etc. (Think Dropbox)
Run a contest based around your current members that would naturally invite them to share that experience.
