Have You Considered Vine for Short, Sharable Videos?
If you haven't thought of employing Vine videos for your small business, you may want to think about it. It is likely you already have everything you need to get this done in your pocket. By using the Vine app on your smartphone, you'll be able to create and upload these short, sharable videos to Twitter as quickly as you make them.
So what is Vine?
So, assuming you've not yet delved into just what Vine is and what it can do on your behalf, here's the short version: Vine is a video sharing platform on Twitter that permits you to create and upload 6-second videos to Twitter. So what good is a 6-second video, you ask? Well, a lot of good! Take a look at how a few companies are using Vine videos to help further their brand, promote their merchandise, and otherwise tout their business: RedVines, Urban Outfitters and Nintendo.
These companies found a way for videos to help further their brand, advertise their products and services, and promote their businesses in other ways. They already know this service, which is trending very hot just now, can do for them. One of the main attractions of a service like Vine is that getting your content in front of people is getting harder and harder as people are less willing to take the time to read. Consumers are less eager to read, so a 6-second video is exactly what the doctor ordered, and you'd be impressed at a few of the ways people are using Vine. According to Biznology.com, businesses are using them to introduce new employees, announce events, give an insider's look into the business, and in many cases creating short commercials to demonstrate their latest product or service.
