Facebook is one of the most important social media channels. It’s key to helping with your business’s brand awareness and social media marketing. Here are some tips for using video to market your business on Facebook.
Upload the video directly to Facebook. While you could post a link to your video from Youtube or Vimeo, you’ll probably get more reach if you upload directly to Facebook. Reach is the metric for how many people will see your video in their feed. Also, you can autostart the video if it’s directly uploaded.
Keep your video short. In general, viewers don’t want to watch a long video. Some 80% of all video posted online is clicked away within the first twenty seconds. So keep it short Make sure your viewers know the point of the video within the first five seconds or so.
Use subtitles. If your video is autostarting, you should use subtitles. Let your viewers watch the entire video without sound and still get your message.
