Video Marketing: How to Successfully Market to Social Media

Article -to-Video Tools – Using article-to-video tools don’t work well for social media video marketing. On social media, people are following your brand. People talk about it and it starts developing a reputation. These tools may have their place. Keep in mind, however, that they are only regurgitating your written word into a different format. Successfully marketing to social media networks needs more.

Here are three video marketing tips.

  • Your Videos Must Enhance Your Written Content – Your video should offer something extra. It needs to enhance your written content. People are getting value from your written content. Its value is taken to a whole new level when they watch your video. It helps the viewer reach their “aha” moment.
  • It Must Create a Bond Between Your Text and Your Video Content – Your video should not present information as though your post or article doesn’t exist. In other words, mention your article, post, or social media accounts in your video. Likewise mention the video in your article, post, and social media accounts. That way your audience will realize that you’re giving them something different. It’s the same information but there’s added value. You’re not just distributing the same thing across a lot of channels.
  • Engage and Incentivize Your Audience – The more your audience engages with your materials, the more incentivized they feel. They know you are paying attention to them. In your video, you could say something like, “Leave a comment and I will create a video based on the most popular ideas.” That’s how you get your audience to become emotionally invested in what you do. To a certain extent, they become co-creators and partners with you. There’s no better way to get your point across than video.

Successfully market your videos to your social media networks. Enhance your content with videos, create a bond with your audience, and engage and incentivize them to get to know your brand better.
