Social media platforms attract different audience demographics, and their users have diverse expectations about the type of content they expect to find when they open their social media apps. Each platform has a particular set of specifications for length and format, which it’s essential to know. Media Northeast works with our clients to help them understand how best to hit the right tone for their audience on a particular platform.

Engaging your content is specific to a platform and its audience demographic, so consider your social media video content strategy as an ongoing campaign tied to critical events in your business calendar. You will build up an audience that is more likely to interact with and share your content, leading to greater awareness of what you do and ultimately to better sales. Enhance social campaigns with features such as embedded forms or calls to action. These enable you to measure directly how your social video campaign is performing. Last, be sure to leave your audience with a clear call to action at the end of the video to drive them to your website or an offer.
