In the world of video marketing, SEO techniques apply to many aspects of it. You can get more views on your videos organically by putting detail into your descriptions and video titles, using hashtags, and keeping your posts consistent. Try these tips for more views on Facebook and Instagram:

Reaching Your Audience on Facebook

Be consistent in the types of video content you add to your Facebook page. If you post square videos as part of your video marketing strategy, stick to that format instead of switching to an aspect ratio of 16:9 all of a sudden. 85% of Facebook users watch videos with the sound off! This means if your video isn’t optimized to be watched and understood without sound, users will probably keep scrolling. Create videos that are optimized for all mobile devices. 

Boosting Instagram Video Views

Instagram video marketing is all about staying relevant, which goes for your hashtag usage too. Popular hashtags are a very important part of Instagram posts, giving you a chance to connect with your target audience. You can use a hashtag to connect your video to a campaign your brand is running. You can also increase the number of views on your videos on Instagram by adding a detailed description. This gives you room to use keywords and hashtags that relate to your audience, photos, and video content. An optimized video description should always be part of your video marketing strategy. 

Creating View-Worthy Videos

Have a uniform understanding of the types of content you’re going to be creating. You’ll want something for your brand that works in the long term when you create content. You can greatly improve lead generation by having a consistent video posting schedule and format. 

Try viewing your competitor’s relevant content to see what they’re doing to gain views and engagement on their videos. In the world of digital marketing, knowing what your competition is doing is key to improving your content marketing efforts.

Conclusion

When it comes to boosting video views on Instagram and Facebook, the answer is to keep trying and improving your video marketing strategy. Sometimes the most popular videos rise from sheer luck. However, if you put in the hard work, you’ll see the views begin to rise on your video content with the help of SEO.
