What's to Love about this Infographic?
- This is a great overview of some of the main platforms with some really easy to implement takeaways. I love that they have included some great tips for Instagram and Google Plus!
- I love the Optimum Timing for Posting – however be aware that the “optimum time” for any posting really does depend on your own time zone, individual niche, industry and your community. The best thing you can do is test and then retest – check what is working and post more at those times!
However, these Vine Tips (other than Infinite Loop) are also relevant for Instagram Video, so take note of them!
I wrote about Vine here but now I am curious as to whether Instagram Video will take over with it's 15 second videos. It also includes the ability to upload your own pre-recorded video in addition to taking and editing them “live”. It may be that many people stick with Instagram where they are already active. Regardless of what platform you choose, short videos about the life behind your business or brand (or teaser videos introducing bigger chunks of content) can be very powerful for engaging with your community and driving traffic. These Vine Tips are therefore mostly relevant for Instagram Video users too.
