6 Second Video? Can it work for you, some great examples.

The new tool that I love is the ability to create 6 second video’s and use Vine to post them to Twitter and Facebook.

In my talk yesterday I spoke briefly about how some companies are already using this tool with great effect, here are a few ideas, followed with a quick how to Vine tips:

Show people what you do

A design company showed examples of packaging

Engage with questions

Ask a question, answer with a Vine Video

Meet the team, see who we are

Show them the team, ideal if you are trying to recruit new people

History of your business

Gap has a great video that shows the history of their jeans in 6 seconds, can you show your history, a brand you have worked with, results, … build credibility

Promote a presentation

Want to increase signups to your next webinar or get more subscribers to your podcast?  An example is to use a sped up doodle on a whiteboard covering the topics.

Dale Strickland of Immoraleyes Photography can help with these videos, have a look at an example he made for a client that needed a video of a boiler being put together
