Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently stated that he believes:
“we’re going to be a few years from now where the vast majority of content that people consume online will be video”
It’s no surprise then that Facebook is moving quickly to make the social network as video friendly as possible.
One of the latest developments in this trend is giving businesses the ability to replace their static cover image on their Facebook video with a video.
To see what this looks like take a look at our Facebook page here:
For businesses, this is hugely advantageous. Because video combines visuals, sound and text you can deliver a lot of information in a very short space of time and with much greater impact.
Feature the right video and in under thirty seconds explain what your business does, what makes it unique and why customers should buy from you.
A good video will also convey the quality of your brand in a way which is dynamic and engaging.
