Instagram has now established itself as a bonafide power player in the realm of social video marketing.

Best Practices for Branded Vine Videos

Tuesday, 13 May 2014 | ClickZ - Kristin Kovner   

While marketers are embracing the trend of short-form branded videos on Vine, many of their efforts are not as successful as they could be. Here are five tips for producing the best branded Vine videos.

By the time you read this, you'll be gone. Just kidding - sort of. Recent research from the University of Hamburg and the University of Hannover found that more than 50 percent of Internet users remain on a Web page for fewer than 10 seconds. With the rise of Instagram Video, Snapchat Stories, and six-second Vine clips, 10 seconds may be optimistic.

As marketers build their media plans, dollars continue to shift to content - especially short-form "micro-content" designed for social media channels. According to the Content Marketing Institute (CMI), content now represents 30 percent of the average marketing budget, and 58 percent of B2B marketers plan to increase their content production spend this year.

The adoption's there, but the confidence isn't. While 87 percent of marketers use social media to distribute their content - a whopping six platforms, on average - fewer than 25 percent of marketers say their efforts on Instagram or Vine were effective, according to the CMI. Here, a look at five best practices for creating successful short-form branded videos for the likes of Instagram, Snapchat, and Vine:

Vine Web Video Could Revolutionize Video Marketing

Wednesday, 07 May 2014 | TechGuruDaily - Guy Wright   

A lot of YouTube ads let you skip to the main video after 5 secs. Well, that's about all the time you need for your typical Vine video. So, maybe you need to think about leveraging the power of Vines over mimicking traditional video advertising which often annoys rather than excites you on the web.

Until today, you could only watch or work with Vine videos through its mobile app. But now there's Vine.co, a sort of YouTube version of Vine that doesn't need an app, or a log-in, for you to search and browse Vines on the web.

TED Is The Perfect Antidote To Viral Videos

Wednesday, 07 May 2014 | Forbes - Andy Robertson   

While my Facebook feed races to the lowest common denominator, I’m happily reminded that TED talks continue to resist this downward viral video trend. They are the perfect antidote because they are properly viral.

Online video used to be a way to disrupt our assumptions about the world. Now, so called “viral” videos simply fill our feeds with ever more desperate attempts to make us click and “watch the first 10 seconds to be amazed”.

The videos I find in my Facebook news feed (I really can’t imagine reading it much longer) may spread like wildfire but this replication is in vain. The majority have no real DNA beneath their one “laugh out loud” protein coat. Any virus of this nature would soon find itself extinct.

Social Video Marketing: Create Conversations and Build Customer Loyalty

Thursday, 24 April 2014 | MarketingProfs - Melody King   

Here's a list of buzzwords for you: social, video, and marketing. But if you put them together, they create something that can powerfully engage customers and greatly improve their online experience.

It's a combination that works very well for online marketing: the grassroots, viral environment of social media; video's ability to engage; and a strong marketing strategy.

You're likely well aware of video's value in bringing your brand and messages to life. But simply posting video isn't enough to change consumer behavior; you need to do extra work to encourage people to interact with your content, contribute their ideas, and give it the thumbs-up. As social media changes the rules about marketing and relationships, conversation must be a part of any content you produce.

Social video marketing can encourage prospects and customers to help get your message out and reach a wider audience. Study after study has found that the vast majority of consumers trust "earned media," including word-of-mouth and recommendations from friends and family, over any other source.
