When it comes to your social media strategy, you want to ensure you have the right tools to reach your target audience, grow your brand and stay engaged with your audience. One of the many ways to do this is through video marketing. 

What is Video Marketing?

Video marketing is simply the use of videos to promote your products and services to your target audience, to increase traffic to your website or other social channels. Using videos in your strategy is essential, because compared to images and text, they are much more engaging content that keeps your audience excited about your content. 

With this in mind, I will share some of my favorite video marketing tools that you can use to elevate your social media pages and capitalize on video marketing. 

Before I dive into it, let me remind you that there are different types of video marketing, therefore there are tools that are more tuned to fit your goals. Focus on what kind of content you will post and that will help you choose the right tools to help you reach your audience. 

Video Software 

The following are all-in-one video marketing tools that allow you to not only film within the platform but edit your videos, add music, choose templates and share to your social networks.

Video Editing 

Milk is to coffee as editing is to video, it would be plain, boring and not tasteless. So, with that said I am going to leave some top-tier editing softwares that will help you create crisp, exciting and tasteful videos.

Video Hosting/Screenshare

If you record videos, and realize you need to screen record to explain a feature or show part of your business these following hosting and screenshare video platforms are great to elevate your business. 

Loom

Sometimes trying to explain something to your coworker or client is difficult through writing or worse, we have all faced the annoyance that is technical difficulties when trying to share your screen in a meeting. 

Therefore, Loom allows you to record screenshared videos quickly and easily, so you can then share them for the recipient to watch at their own convenience. After recording, you can instantly upload and share it. 

Vimeo

Similar to Loom, Vimeo allows you to screen record as well as directly record in the platform. This is also an easy to use program, and is great if you have a team to share an account. Uploading videos to Vimeo and sharing it across social platforms is easy with Vimeo.

This application is also free, when adding it as a Chrome Extension. 

Video Streaming 

Going Live is now a huge part of social media, however it seems that inside apps like TikTok and Instagram, you’re somewhat limited to the actions you can perform once the stream has started. 

Streamyard 

With Streamyard, you can schedule streams directly with Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn, which will then live on your page. While you’re live, you can also add banners, reply to comments, share a presentation, add your brand logos and colors within the stream and even have someone in the backend in case anything goes wrong. 

Now that you know just a few video marketing tools, I hope you can use these to elevate your video content and grow your business. Not sure how to market your business or brand on social media? We got you covered.
