30 Oct Include Video On Your Facebook Header to gain more interest!
Have you considered using video on your Facebook page to gain extra interest in your product or brand ?
In recent months, the increase in video in the headers of Facebook pages has been duly noted and you can do this for FREE!
Simply record your own video and upload it to your page and bingo! You’ll have more interest and interaction on your page with your followers.
One of our clients uses Animoto videos and you could sign up for a free Animoto trial by clicking on the link.
One of the biggest questions we’ve heard about this new feature is, how do you export a video wide enough to fit in the Facebook cover image spot? The answer is, you don’t have to! You can upload a regular landscape video and drag and drop to crop it to the correct size. You’ll just have to keep a couple of things in mind when creating your video:
- Your video must be between 20 and 90 seconds long in order to upload it.
- Your video resolution must be 1080p in order to upload and use it as a Facebook cover.
- Part of the height of your video will be cropped out, so make sure to keep any important photos or text centralized so it won’t get cut out. In Animoto, click and drag text to centre it and use the enter or return key to shift text down, if necessary.
- Cover videos are only available for Pages and not personal profiles at this time.
The minimum dimension is the same as the current cover area dimension: 820 x 312.
