For many businesses, producing and outputting video content can be costly in terms of time, money and skills. With the meteoric rise of video across Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, you’ve got to have the video know-how to remain relevant.
Where do we come in? We’re here to debunk the myths and give you some cracking knowledge to begin creating video content that’s truly fit for social.
Firstly, social video and traditional video have some similarities and differences.
Similarities? For valuable impact, you must mimic the depth of the storytelling in big-time traditional ads. It’s the depth of the story that has the ability to captures both hearts and minds.

With this in mind, you’ve got to consider video content within your social media strategy. To help you, we’re sharing some insider secrets on how to create quality video; what will capture the attention of your customers, and how to train the talent in your organisation to be in-front of the camera.
