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 [END]
