Facebook is the #1 platform that consumers use to keep connected with brands online, according to our annual survey. And those same consumers reported that video is the #1 way they find new brands on social.
But if you haven’t had time to fit Facebook video marketing into your schedule, we’ve got a shortcut. Take a look at a few of Animoto’s Facebook video templates and find out how you can customize them quickly and easily to fit your brand.
Though Animoto features dozens of video templates designed for Facebook, any of our templates can be customized to fit your brand. Here are a few of our favorites to get you started.
Explain what makes your business special. How are you different from the competition and what makes your products or services stand out? This type of video is a good choice for a featured video on your Facebook page.
Grab viewers’ interest with an intriguing question. Then follow up with a rundown of a trend in your industry or a topic that’ll draw your audience in. When you post a video like this in your feed, you show off your experience in the industry, and offer a video that’s fun and worth sharing.
Recipe and craft videos are still hugely popular on Facebook. Share your favorite recipe with eye-catching text and bright colors, using the template. Never made a recipe video before? Check out our posts on how to create a recipe video and on how to get those iconic overhead shots.
Talk about how your brand adds value for your customer. Think about including an interesting statistic to hook your audience. Then explore how you’re meeting your customers’ needs. This type of video works well as either an ad or a featured video on your Facebook page.
Give your audience a glimpse behind the curtain. Show the work that goes into what you do and how that work helps you give customers the best possible experience.
Demonstrate the powerful effects of your products or services with a before-and-after video. Share photos or video clips showing how your brand transformed customers, then add in online reviews to boost your credibility.
Show what your organization does and why it needs help. Combine uplifting music with images that’ll tug at the heartstrings and get your audience to donate.
Take your audience on a journey while they scroll through their News Feed. Focus on one location and what makes it extraordinary. Then add your images along with easy-to-read text describing its special features.
Speak straight to your target customer and share the biggest benefit they can get from your product or service. Look for ways to connect with viewers’ emotions, either through your words or your images.
Provide step-by-step instructions for a product or teach a new skill using bold text and just a few photos.
When you find the right template for your project, you can personalize it. Take a look at some of the ways you can make our Facebook templates your own. To see how it works, check out the video we customized using the Recipe How-To template.
