Social media has different platforms but you don’t have to be on all popular social networks for your video marketing.
Pick one or two to focus on. And choosing the best one(s) for your business lies in understanding your audience’s preference. That’s why it is important to know your audience well – which social media platforms they usually hang out.
It is also important to fully understand how to optimize video content on different social media platforms and how to use video content to engage your followers. You must understand which information your audience is seeking and how they will respond, in order to yield more engagement and click through rates.
