Chapter 1: Types of Video Content
Types of social media videos for your business
Look, we get it.
It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the number and types of videos floating around the internet every day. Similarly, it’s difficult to know precisely when and where you should use a particular type of video.
This is exactly why we made a comprehensive list of all the content types you can create for social media video marketing.
Whether you need Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram video ideas, this is the section for you!
Each of these videos have their own characteristics and platforms that they work best in.
1. Product videos (what do you do/make?)
You probably already know the basics of product-related videos so we won’t bore you with too many details. Essentially, product videos can be explainer videos, demos or teasers.
In other words, they’re great for getting the word out there, increasing brand exposure and familiarizing customers with your product.
Short explainer or teaser videos on social media also seem more authentic to consumers than commercial ads and branded videos. In addition, they build curiosity and encourage customers to learn more and seek out your products.
Best for: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter
