Are you thinking about adding videos to your social media mix?

Do you want to boost your awareness and increase engagement?

Social media networks provide a lot of video options.

From Google+ Hangouts to Twitter’s Vine and Facebook’s launch of Instagram Video, video is fast becoming an essential part of any business’s online marketing strategy.

In this post, I’m going to show you how to incorporate video from 5 platforms into your social media strategy.

#1: Vine Video

For those who aren’t into complex video production, Vine lets you create simple, six-second looping videos to share on Twitter and Facebook.

Some brands on Vine include Xbox, HTC, Puma, Urban Outfitters and Walgreens.

Here are some ways businesses can use Vine to support strategic goals.

Tease or Demo a Product

In six seconds, you can show off the best features of your business’s products or tease a new product launch.

Preview an Event

Got an upcoming webinar or conference? Give people a quick snippet of what they can expect with a Vine video. Take them behind the scenes of the preparation and make video a part of your event marketing strategy.

Showcase Your Portfolio

Share a six-second video sweep of your latest interior design creations. It’s more powerful than a flat photo because potential customers experience your work in context.

Take Fans Inside

Take your fans inside your office, your store, your restaurant or any other place they usually can’t go to help them get to know your business on a more personal level. Show employees at work, hanging out and having fun. Show that the people inside your company are passionate about what they do and customers will be more confident in your service.
