But, many people don’t know how to create a video that will do that. Learn how your business can take its content to the next level with three easy tips!
1. Turn Heads
Video is a great way to make your business’ content stand out on social media, but it takes more than a play and pause button to stop those thumbs from scrolling. Keep your users engaged using quality video production, bright colors, and catchy verbiage. When creating your video, it is important to stay consistent if your brand using the same fonts, colors, and tone to increase brand association.
2. Cut Out The Middleman
Every social network has a method of uploading videos now. So why make your audience go to Youtube to see your content? Don’t! It’s time to cut Youtube links from your business’ posts, and directly upload it. If your content is readily available to view, users are more likely to watch it. If your business is on YouTube and would like to direct traffic to your page, then we suggest mentioning and embedding a link in the post caption or your profile bio.
3. Keep It Short and Sweet
As mentioned before, videos grabs audience attention easily, but not for long! Studies have shown that tweets with videos in them are responded to six time more than text-only tweets! But, the average social media post receives ten seconds of attention before a user scrolls to the next one, so it is important to keep videos as short as possible in order to maximize the amount of people who watch it until the end, especially if there is a call to action involved.
