    Click the File Publisher button in BV.
    Double click the shape inserted on the page.
    Click the Add button.
    Browse to and select your zip file.
    Click the Open button.
    Click the OK button.

    On the page, create a link to the zip file.
    Publish. (The zip file in the publisher will automaticallly upload during publishing). After publishing, you can delete the File Publisher shape again.

    You can also use the FTP Manager in the Tools menu if you know how to use it.
    Bless you

    Ok I added the file to the page but is there any way I can switch it to text which says something along the lines of "Click To Download"? Or does the zip file (Which in this scenario is a video demo) will automatically load?

    You create a link on your page to the zip file on the server.
    When the visitors click the link, they will get a File Download dialog window, prompting to Open, Save or Cancel.

    You can always add a text file in the zip with further instructions.

    On your page, you will either use an image, or text, or even a menu item that visitors must click to access your zip file (your choice). You will therefore have to create a hyperlink to the zip file, e.g.
    http://www.hostok.com/nameofzipfile.zip

    You select the image or text. You then click the link button and type the url link there. I think you need to watch some tutorials first. Here is a link.
