Create a Compelling Story:
Do you want to sell a product or sell a story? I would say, selling a story is going to be easier. Story videos work like magic on social media and time and again we have seen compelling story videos that can attach a customer emotionally to your brand.
Keep Marketing Videos Short and Easily Understandable:
As per research, on average, users watch only 4% of a video published on Facebook. This means that if a video is approximately 4 minutes, then a user spends only 10 seconds watching the video. Hence, it’s very important to keep your videos easily understandable so the user can grasp faster in a short span of time.
Use High-Quality Content:
Your text should not be blurry, the video if has images should not be broken, the audio must be compatible and the video quality should be high. Any low-quality video might not be appreciated or given any time on social media amidst billions of interesting videos.
Be mindful of Video Dimensions:
Your video aspect ratios are very important depending on the social media platform you’re focusing on. If you’re working on Instagram, then you need to create square videos, if your focus is on stories, then a vertical video is required. Please read the video requirements of each platform before designing your videos.
Add Text/Subtitles to your Videos:
Videos with text or subtitles perform better because not everyone has their complete attention on the platform. Adding text to your video allows users to understand the video even without sound or much focus.
Make your Headlines Catchy:
Your headlines are going to be the primary reason why anyone will begin watching your video in the first place. So, make sure that your headlines are filled with humor, wit, trending topics to gain maximum attention and reach.
Create Videos for Mobile Viewers:
Over half of the video content is watched on mobile and 92% of the mobile viewers share video posts. Hence, it is very important to make sure that your marketing videos are mobile-friendly and load faster on mobile devices.
Make your Call-to-Actions (CTAs) Rewarding:
Make your users click on your CTAS by making them an offer they can’t miss. Whether it’s a lucky offer or a sale-end duration or a limited number of passes, your CTA should be something that an interested user would not want to miss.
Following the above tips while preparing your video content can ensure that you only create impactful marketing videos. Upload your videos on YouTube, share them on all the social networks, and add them to your website to take the maximum advantage of it.
