Video marketing is becoming the most popular and influential strategy of digital marketing to grab audience’s attention and present more content. You can find more and more videos in Facebook now.
LET’S LOOK AT 3 VIDEO MARKETING TRENDS FOR FACEBOOK!
- Cover video
Cover video is not a new function in Facebook. When people enter your Facebook Page, the cover photo or video will be showed on the top. By replacing cover photo to cover video, you can show content between 20 and 90 seconds. A creative and attractive cover video can give a good first impression for audience and introduce your brand.

- Hold contest or giveaway
Run a Facebook contest or giveaway to reward fans is a good way to increase engagement. Using video, you can ask fans to enter the contest easily by screen-capturing a scene and posting the image. Or you can ask a simple question that fans can find the answer in the video. It is interactive while encouraging your audience to watch the whole video to find the scene or answer.
