Facebook’s new video tool called, Your Business Story, makes the video creation process about as simple as logging into Facebook. To create your video, you can select up to eight of your own photos, choose a soundtrack (Facebook currently provides four choices), and write some text (90 characters max) about your business.
After choosing your photos, music and text, Facebook will create and display your video, After that, you can make any edits you may need or start sharing in on your Facebook Business page right away.
A little nervous about do-it-yourself video? Here are a few tips to make the most of your Facebook video:
- Use Engaging Photos
Be sure to use photos that are eye-catching
- Simple Photos Are Better
Since text will overlay on several screens of the video, photos without text or busy patterns work best
- Make Sure You Like It Before Sharing It
Once you post the video to your page you can no longer make edits, so review carefully before sharing
Facebook doesn't limit to the number of Your Business Story videos you can create, so you can always delete one and create a new one. Or you can create multiple videos to highlight your various locations, products, services, or team members.
Now you're ready to go. Let your imagination loose and get creating.
