Tips for making a stunning video for Facebook

  1. Start with an eye-catching photo or video clip Browse through your collection of photos and video clips to find an attention-grabbing option for your first block. An interesting beginning will get followers to keep watching when your video autoplays in their News Feed.
  2. Add bold text and bright colors Spruce up your video with vivid colors and splashy text effects that entice viewers. Select design, style, and filter settings to fine-tune your video.
  3. Keep it short and sweet Facebook ads that are under 30 seconds usually convert better than long-form content. Try shorter content that encourages viewers to take action rather than spending time and energy on a longer video that may not be as effective.

Tips for Facebook video marketing success

  1. Post native video Don’t just share a link to your Facebook video. Upload right into Facebook, so your video will autoplay and look its best. A direct upload is also more likely to get noticed by Facebook’s algorithm and show up in more News Feeds.
  2. Choose a powerful thumbnail The thumbnail is the first thing people see. Make sure it draws viewers in. If you don’t like the thumbnail Facebook gives you to work with, you can also upload one.
  3. Always use a call to action For video ads, you have the option to include a call to action like “Learn more” or “Shop now." But even in News Feed posts, you can include a call to action as text in your video or in your description to encourage your audience to visit your site.

Where to share your Facebook videos

  1. Facebook News Feed videos Whether you’re posting a quick ad or longer content, Facebook’s News Feed helps make it easier to discover your brand. Try making a square video, which will take up 78% more space in News Feeds than horizontal video will.
  2. Facebook profile & cover videos Make your profile stand out with video. Create stylized profile and cover videos to add flavor to your social profile. You can even customize videos to bring attention to new campaigns or promotions.
  3. Facebook Stories Add some serious production value to your Facebook Stories. Create a short clip with beautiful visual effects that will let your Stories to stand out from the crowd.
