the best way to create Attention Grabbing Videos on Facebook to create videos with great visual content for eye catching look.

"Video content is being used as an explosion on facebook."

The reason behind the change in the Facebook's News Feed algorithm for showing visual ads.

However these changes were done last year in favor the promotion of the format of visual content of facebook.

Now a days, the visual content has been an important part of the social media marketing strategy. 

This is because the Facebook's current ranking and action policies make it an absolutely vital format for maximizing organic search result, which means advertisers and agencies need to pay attention.

4 points to keep in mind while creating videos for Facebook

Facebook changes their scripts for videos. Now videos are automatically play in the News Feed without sound.  

As per several surveys, the first few seconds of the video are thus incredibly important.

  1. Use stunning visuals than sound
    • If you are using stunning or attractive visuals in your video, then the user have to click on the video to here the sound of that particular video they are watching.
    • All depends on the first few seconds of your video that your visitor will click the sound or not. If not, then he is not going to watch the entire video.
  2. Keep in mind the guidelines of Facebook about visuals
    • As you know that it is a general taste and if you do not export your video correctly from your movie editor, no one will go to watch it even it is auto played.
    • Always keep in mind that facebook has very specific design guidelines that should help your video look crisp and sharp.
    • Make a list of the facebook video design criteria at the beginning of the video creation process, not just at the project deadline when you are just going to upload your visuals.
  3. Do not use animated Gif images on Facebook
    • Animated GIF images are in trend now a day, but I suggest you to avoid animated GIF images and promote your visual content with good quality videos.
  4. Use call to action in the video
    • A view is great, but a click is even better than just a view.
    • Facebook has now implemented a call-to-action function, you can direct viewers to any URL at the end of the video using Facebook’s menu of buttons such as “watch more” or “shop now”. 
    • You can add your website's landing page during or at the end of your video.
    • You can set up your videos to encourage these new guests to sign up for a newsletter, register for an event, or download additional content from the landing page.
