Video content has been around for generations but it's only now that businesses are realizing how important it is to utilize video content on social media and to make it a valuable part of their digital marketing plan.
Here are a few tips to utilize video content within your business and to make sure you're using it in the best way possible.
Understanding what video content you want to create
With video content surrounding our everyday lives, it’s important to know what video content your business wants to create in order to set goals, refine your content, make comparisons and feel a little less like the small fish in a sea of online sharks.
Deciding which social media platform is best for your video content
The likes of YouTube would be the obvious choice for your business as it's the leading platform solely dedicated to producing video content. Saying this, websites, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (to name a few) allow businesses and creators to distribute video content among other mediums too e.g. written pieces or photography. This balance may or may not be important to your business and something you may need to consider.

Words require effort and for the most part, consumers want ease. Because of this, utilizing video content couldn't be prominent.
