What is Micro-video?
A microvideo can be a short video, a stop-and-start video strung together to be one seamless video (Instagram does this), or multiple photos put together into a video clip slideshow. Typically, they’re made with a smartphone – simple to shoot, edit and share.
Micro-video became very popular in 2013, and continues to grow in popularity with apps like Instagram and Vine. It is a quick way to share an engaging piece of visual content, sort of like a mini-movie. Especially as social media feeds become even more cluttered with not only regular social media posting, but advertisements thrown in there, as well.
We have to do whatever it takes to keep the attention of our fans and followers, and micro-video is a great way to do this, since the average person just doesn’t take the time. Most businesses share photos and posts, but there is another way to capture your audience’s attention, so the next time you reach for your smartphone camera, bring something to life through video. Truth is, it’s very simple to do. Remember to keep them entertaining and informative.
