Video marketing is quickly becoming key to social media success for brands big and small. However, not all video content is created equal. Below, we examine the top three types of videos to include in your social media marketing strategy to ensure improved engagement and reputation for your business going forward.
Live streaming is so hot right now. According to recent statistics, 80% of people would rather watch live video from a brand than read a blog, and 82% would prefer live video from a brand to social posts. Do your brand a favour and start experimenting with Facebook Live and YouTube Live to get a feel for the trend and watch how quickly your audience starts to grow. Just remember to promote your live streams on your social media profiles well ahead of time to generate hype and increase turn-out.
Did you know that tutorial videos are some of the most commonly shared types of videos on social media? The great news is that they are easy to film and are a fantastic opportunity to promote your product. Do your best to keep them short, sweet and witty.
One of the most important things for a brand to do when it comes to digital and social media marketing is to ensure that people can relate to it. One way in which to do this is to introduce your followers to your team and processes as authentically as possible. Behind-the-scenes videos at an event or filming an ad are a great opportunity to give this a go. Just remember to avoid any scripts and heavy editing.
