The importance of using videos in your social media marketing
Long gone are the days where social media meant sharing a simple line of text about what you were getting up to that day, or what you thought about the six nations match. Now, social media is saturated with every form of information you can wrap your head around. Text, videos, images, and combinations of all of these. Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter give you the opportunity to share your videos with whoever will watch. It is this ability to upload moving images and share them with the world that is the key to building a larger brand following. It will further the success of your business. Your social media marketing strategy needs to include these videos.
Keeping it simple
A video is a smooth and effortless form of gathering and sharing information. People have short attention spans and want things to be easy. That’s what you get with videos. There’s no tedious writing to read, no misinterpreted tone, and people can sit back and absorb the information. Videos give us a break from the ever bombarding textual information we come across online and in our lives. The proof of this is in the stats.
People watch over 5 billion videos every single day on YouTube alone. 300 hours of video is uploaded to the platform every single minute. So, standing out among the masses can be hard if you don’t have a fantastic social media marketing plan. You also need excellent, engaging, and original content to make your mark. But with such a high number of viewers, when you do stand out, the rewards are overwhelming.
To be able to make it to the top, a high standard in your videos is essential. If one element that goes into making a great video is even slightly wrong, a person will scroll past within a second. The volumes of quality video content online mean people don’t have to sit around and wait for your video to load, or try to decipher words through poor sound quality. So, what do you need to do?
