00:00: have you been thinking about how to

00:01: incorporate video on instagrams let me

00:03: tell you something this is something

00:04: that I started doing let's say early

00:07: 2016 and definitely in 2017 and a lot of

00:09: my industry peers when Nonna's oh my

00:12:  gosh you're always putting on these


00:13: really good videos to market your brand


00:16: and then maybe stand out from other

00:19: people within and especially in my area

00:22: because they were doing it doesn't mean

00:24: that you know they celebrated like that

00:25: I just weren't doing it so I'm gonna

00:27- give you guys three tips to help you is

00:29-starting with Instagram videos so this

00:33-probably for someone would be like the

00:35-last but I always work backwards and I

00:38-believe that you should really have a

00:40-really good cover photo a lot of times

00:43-people will use a like a clip from


00:47-within the video and I may not actually


00:49-grab your audience's attention so when

00:52- you're making your Instagram video


00:54-within your editing software so easy I


00:56-don't premiere or Final Cut Pro X


00:58-whatever put your cover photo in there


01:00-first but make sure it doesn't eat up


01:01-your time because kind of going into 


01:04- you want to watch the length of your


01:06- video and so you don't want the first 10


01:08- seconds of your video to be just that


01:10- cover photo you will lose people so


01:12- let's talk about tip number two


01:15- so tip number two is about the length of

01:19-your video because it's Instagram and


01:21-it's mostly known for images even though


01:24-video is finding its place as well you


01:26-want to watch the length of your videos


01:28- honestly I've had more yes that means


01:32-that you have to get in there within


01:34-like the first six to eight seconds and


01:36-give people what they need but as you


01:38-get better at it


01:39-and as you create more promotional or


01:42-inbound and outbound marketing type of


01:45-content you will see how much easier it


01:47-is to really deliver your message in a


01:50-couple seconds there's a quote I don't


01:52-even remember who said it because I'm


01:53-honestly always from different people


01:59-but there's a statement I should say


02:00-that if you can't like describe with


02:03-your dues without sounding like a broken


02:05-or robot in the first couple of seconds


02:09-you will lose some money in conversation


02:11-so you need to make sure to keep that


02:14-same mindset I should say when you're


02:15-doing Instagram video now Facebook


02:19-things have changed but you want to make


02:23-sure that you are keeping a good length


02:26-for Instagram and I'm gonna be honest


02:28-with you the way you make a video for


02:30-Facebook may not work on Instagram so


02:32-don't just don't be lazy like be


02:34-creative you may be able to take that


02:35-same video and chop it up or cut it up


02:37-or put a part of it in to your Instagram


02:41- video content and what you share but I'm


02:44-telling you right now you cannot just


02:45-use that same Facebook video on


02:47-Instagram and just leave it in play that


02:49-doesn't work


02:54-some good ideas for videos for Instagram


02:58-would be behind the scenes they do very


03:01-well because people get to know it you


03:03-can see what it's like for me I'm a


03:05-photographer and cinematographer someone


03:06-nice when I share behind-the-scenes


03:08-video say like oh wow that's how she


03:09-goes that's how she operates look at the


03:11-rides and look at the couples and


03:13-although there's another we got another


03:15-tip video that I do a lot is showcasing


03:17-now when you're showcasing once if you


03:21-want to be sure that you're not doing


03:22-once again that pushy by myself so you


03:27-just want to show like hey this is what


03:28-my brides or couples or whatever it is


03:30-you can hear and this is what they get


03:31-is worth a look and that's when I meet


03:33-excuse me bye bye showcase you don't


03:36-just want to put the like a like a


03:38-product video up there and into like


03:39-okay bye that's not it you want you


03:42-still want to invite them in but you


03:44-want to show them like hey this is how I


03:46-created this video or this is how I


03:48-created this photo or whatever the case


03:50-may be don't I want to say this in


03:53-especially for people that are within an


03:55-issue because I see it a lot just


03:56-because you share behind-the-scenes

03:58-video doesn't mean that someone else can

04:00-be you argue you're just sharing how you

04:02- did it they can try it but it still may

04:04- not resonate the same way with their

04:06-audience especially they're doing


04:07-something that's completely ninth day so

04:09-I was sharing this to encourage you to

04:11-be yourself be creative be entertaining

04:14-be engaging to all of that good stuff

04:17- and you find that getting started with

04:19-Instagram videos or doing videos

04:21- Instagram is cnxn
