How to Optimize Videos for Different Social Media Platforms
Updated: Jul 13
At Marketing Empire Group, our expertise lies in making your brand visible and appealing across a plethora of digital avenues. One of the most potent tools in our arsenal is video content. Why? Because, 74% of marketers say video has a better return on investment than static imagery, according to Biteable. We understand the power of videos and, more importantly, know how to tailor them to perfection for various social media platforms, primarily Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube.
Instagram & Facebook Video Optimization
With Instagram's popularity skyrocketing, this platform is essential for your brand's visibility. We optimize your videos to take advantage of Instagram's features like Stories, Reels, and feed posts. Our video editing team ensures your videos are square or vertical to perform best on Instagram's mobile-first platform.
We keep them under 60 seconds to best suit Instagram's tricky algorithm. Our video editors optimize your videos for silent autoplay by adding subtitles, knowing many users scroll through their feeds with the sound off.
Facebook prioritizes native videos that directly upload to the platform. We also keep the videos engaging from the first second to combat the short attention spans. Lastly, we provide clear CTAs to drive user engagement.
LinkedIn Video Optimization
LinkedIn caters to a more professional audience, which requires a different approach. We ensure your videos maintain a professional tone, and share industry insights, thought leadership, or company culture. Given LinkedIn’s preference for shorter videos, we keep them under two minutes.
YouTube Video Optimization
YouTube is the second largest search engine, meaning optimizing videos for search is crucial here. We prioritize clarity in visuals and audio, knowing YouTube users expect higher production quality. Youtube Shorts is Youtube's take on Tiktok and Instagram reels so we optimize your videos to please the youtube algorithm and reach new audiences.
