Your potential customers and clients are all hanging out on social media. So it's of utmost importance that you can make videos that grab their attention. Especially with the vast amount of content screaming for their attention.
In this post I'm going to share with you a couple simple hacks you can easily implement, to ensure your videos get more views over Facebook & Instagram.
Ready? Let's dive in!
VIDEO HACK #1
Make your videos "square"
"Square videos (1:1) takes up 78% more real estate in a person’s mobile newsfeed than standard landscape videos (16:9)."
Simply by adjusting the ratio of your video inside CreateStudio, you can optimise your videos to take up 78% more space on mobile newsfeeds! This places your content front and centre, and will result in higher views and engagement.
See a comparison below of the 2 different ratios.
VIDEO HACK #2
Create Animated Progress Bars
Another engaging hack to use on your social media videos are animated progress bars. These give social media "scrollers" a visual look at the duration of your video, and are being used by many top entrepreneurs including Gary Vee.
You can also make some cool effects with your progress bars, like adding an image or logo to the progress line to give it some extra engagement juice to grab attention in the newsfeed!
