YouTube Shorts are vertical, short-form videos that you can create or watch on YouTube. Launched in 2021, Shorts is YouTube's answer to TikTok, Instagram Reels, and other viral video platforms.
They are becoming a vital part of the content marketing strategy.
But what is the best way to create them? And how can you maximize their true value to your brand?
Shorts must be 60 seconds or less and do not disappear like Instagram Reels or Snapchats. Your focus should be on delivering your message as concisely as possible and valuing your viewer’s time. The video should be engaging, with catchy audio and captivating copy.
The copy should have the main points of the message while hashtags can bring more attention to your YouTube video short is your chance to grab the viewer’s attention and give them a reason to watch.
Your videos should be relevant, informative, and exciting.
A good title and thumbnail are just as important for your video as the content itself. Create video tutorials or product introductions. You could also introduce yourself or your company in a short video clip, to raise awareness and create some hype around the “What’s New” section.
