5 Tips to Make Your School Video Boost your Social Medias Engagement
The importance of Video Posts on Social Media

One of the best ways to improve your School’s social medias engagement is to publish visual content. In 2014 CEO Mark Zuckerberg was quoted as saying “In five years most of Facebook will be video”.

Video posts have the most organic reach of any type of facebook posts. A great video is the best way to increase engagement and shares for your school:

  • People spend 3x longer watching video
  • Video posts have 135% greater organic reach than photo posts
  • Facebook generates 8 billion video views on average per day

That’s a 135% increase in organic reach, on average, when you post a video instead of a photo. Of course, none of this is prescriptive – you still need to ensure that your content is high-quality.

Your school video is one of your most important presentations, where you can tell your school’s story in 2-4 minutes, what a challenge!

5 Tips using Video to Boost your Engagement on Social Media

Here are 5 reasons, why your promotional video will boost your marketing:

  1. Storytelling in the best and most exciting way
    Develop a script that captures all the important elements of your school.
  2. Delivering the right message to future students and families
    Your video is one of the most important presentations about your school and maybe the only one, people will see. Parents AND students have to like it.
  3. Dynamic and engaging
