How to make Instagram Videos like a Pro
As we all know, social media presence is key in order to provide impulse and visibility to a business, brand or career. Due to the fact that nowadays Instagram is one of the most frequented social media networks, and by far one of the most influential ones, you need to master the ability to create the right content in order to attract the audience in the most beneficial way for your business.
How to create amazing and engaging content for Instagram and not die trying?
STEP 1: Feed or Story, that is the question
Do you want this particular piece of content to live in your feed forever or not? Once you have the answer, you can move forward to the following step.
STEP 2: Video Format matters
Creating the right piece of content involves choosing the appropriate Video Format for the type of post you will share.
Instagram Videos on your Feed can be truly appreciated when created in a square format, and Instagram Story Videos need to be presented in a vertical one, specifically in an aspect ratio of 9:16. This way you can rely on the fact that all your work won’t go unnoticed.
Maybe you think that Instagram Story Videos are not worth the trouble, but Instagram statistics show that the number of Instagram Stories published will surpass the number of images or videos uploaded to the Instagram Feed during the course of 2019. What does that mean? That Instagram Stories matter. People use them and we encourage you to do the same!
STEP 3: Decide the perfect Video Length
The next step is to think about Video Length. Why? Because videos created for the Instagram Feed can last up to 60 seconds and will last through time.
On the other hand, Instagram Stories last only 24hs, and you should make each instant count. You should take into consideration that each image you share as an Instagram Story lasts only a few seconds, but Instagram Story Videos can last even twice as a plain image does
STEP 4: Start editing your video
We provide lots of templates created by a group of outstanding professionals for you to have a place to start- specifically for those who are a little bit scared to face a clean slate. You can select a template of your choosing and then continue adding your message, your logo and anything you can think of.
But, for those adventurous souls who feel truly creative, you can also start your Instagram Video from scratch.
Once you have decided how you want to begin your project, we also provide a wide variety of tutorials to help you on every stage of your video-making process.
STEP 5: Make it look and sound good
Of course you can also upload any images or logos from your computer, or even use Google’s image search engine- we don’t want to limit you!
And remember, if you want to make a great video you shouldn’t forget to add sounds or music, because they appeal to a sense that a flat image simply can’t reach. Take into account that choosing the right background song will directly impact on how your audience feels.
