A new perspective.
If you spend time on social media, you’ve certainly noticed the rise of vertical videos. While feature films and TV shows are shot in a traditional widescreen landscape format ideal for TVs and movie theaters, the rise of mobile viewing is changing the way people consume media.
Vertical videos are styled to fit the vertical screens of your mobile devices (without having to rotate them) and can create a very immersive user experience.
Build your social media marketing strategy.
An eye-catching, full-screen video can stop someone from scrolling past your content on their Instagram feed. And social media platforms — most notably Instagram Stories, TikTok, and Snapchat — now primarily feature videos viewed vertically.
If you’re in the video marketing, social media, or content marketing realms, vertical online videos should be on your radar. People spend a lot of time on their phones, and vertical videos are an effective way to reach your audience across social networks.
As a marketer or advertiser, keep your social channel in mind when creating your vertical video ads and content. For example, videos on Instagram’s IGTV can be up to 10 minutes in length for most accounts and up to an hour long for larger accounts. Alternatively, TikTok videos need to be under 60 seconds.
