What to do next

So, you're wondering what to do next or how to incorporate these 15 ways to use video in social media?

Well, next you should start thinking about which of these videos you can do. Which types of videos will your target market engage with the most? What will deliver the most value for your market?

If you don't know, then put together a test and measure plan. 

Try each type of video at the same time in your socials, on the same day of the week (or fortnight or month if you can't manage weekly). Then look at your insights to see the results to identify the best type of video's to include in your social media on a regular basis. 

And then...

You can make the most of your awesome social media videos by repurposing them. 

Become Sir Mixalot. Break up sections of your videos and use them as individual posts. For example, you could create individual posts from each step in a how to video. 

You can also use your videos on your website and in your newsletters. 

Think about your marketing plan and the various marketing strategies you have in place, and incorporate your social media videos into those other strategies.
