• I am going to open up here and go first – I think that Vine holds the most potential (of the above suggestions) for teaser clips. 6 second clips are great and can be lots of fun, but you can only show so much. Once the buzz settles down and people are done with showing their lunch preparation, cocktail-making prowess and tours of their desk, I think we will see a lot of these clips used as teasers for longer videos, how-to videos, articles, blog posts, launch pages etc.

    This looks awesome Donna, but can you confirm to me where we can share? I’m guessing linkedin, pinterest and google+ (along with other twitter users of course) My understanding is that facebook have disallowed Vine access to the social graph. What is your opinion on this? .

    • Mainly Twitter at the moment Fiona, while Facebook are having a teenage moment about platforms. You can share to Facebook as far as I am aware but it won’t automatically play like it does on Twitter. But then again that is part of the reason why I am getting as much traffic and engagement on Twitter as I do on Facebook. It is new too – so give it some time – any new platform will take a while to open up its sharing to a range of platforms and Vibe have indicated that more is to come.

  • Thanks for posting my vines, I’m glad you liked them! 🙂

    • You are absolutely Welcome! Thanks YOU for the great content! Just love your Gifs – you must be loving Vine! You beat me to it! I was just about to send you a link so glad you spotted the post. Keep up the great work. I think it will be a fun platform and lots of potential! Thanks Khoa!

      • PS I love your Gif – “taking out the trash” – very cool!

  • Mercedes Donis

    I didn’t know about Vine–seems like a great new addition to the social family! I love how it’s the Instagram of video, and using it in Twitter. Will look into this! Should be fun.

    • Cheers Mercedes. I would normally be hesitant to overwhelm everyone with “something new” unless it is useful, but this app is seriously easy to use and fun! Have fun with it!

  • I love how this post takes the fear out of making videos. Awesome!

    • Hi Kathy – yes absolutely – it is great for people wanting to dip their toe in the water with video and the simple push button to video function makes it so easy to use. I also love that it is great for teams of people wanting to give their readers/viewers a window into their business – you can do great things with little snapshot videos about your day. Enjoy!

  • Oh my gosh! Awesome! Thanks for cluing me in Donna, where have I been?

    • ha ha yes, when something is this simple and has such a visual impact with a difference, then all I have to say is…awesome! Can’ wait to play with it more! One of my readers (and a digital marketing strategist, Cindy) did a great one today at an event…check it out: vine.co/v/bJgrJW0TQuY

      • I d/l it right away and made a silly video of my dog!

  • Hmm. Cool stuff. Wishing that many of our fellow marketers will really like and use it as part of their marketing campaign. I know we are all aware of those guys who make use of this current tool to upload stuffs that are “NOT so GOOD”. I’m Looking forward to see great and beneficial stuffs from vine app.

    Thank you Donna for introducing this here:) Cheers!

    • I agree Maegan – I hope brands embrace it – quite a few brands are already so it is looking to be a tool that everyone can get creative with!

      • Exactly Donna. Reading some of your contents here and Thank You they’re are many amazing tips that can help our fellow marketers 🙂

        • Thanks Maegan – I am glad you are enjoying it. Let me know if you start to play with Vine – it has lots of potential for marketing (and for fun!). I noticed today on Twitter even more brands are playing with it which is great!

  • vine app has been released for some time, but up to now, i still havent tried using it, well recently i got curious so i started reading some articles on how to use this vine app and so far the impression it gives me is a dot gif file and not a video, 6 seconds? for an internet marketer to fully used this as a medium to get audience one should be really creative to make the full use of the 6 second vine video, i guess there are still some features that should be updated or changed or maybe im still trying to catch up on how to use this best, its just like when twitter took us by storm, the 140+ tweet is hard but as soon as you get the hang of it, somehow it becomes easy.

    • Definitely – it is still new and there are still little issues being ironed out but so far brands and businesses are having fun with it – it is amazing what some people are doing with 6 seconds of air time!

  • Hey Donna,

    I’ve been trying out Vine myself – but these examples are awesome to go by. Will share – as always! 🙂

    What I like about Vine is that the vids get saved to your phone, which means you can not only share on Twitter, but everywhere else as well.


    • ha ha yes it is definitely loads of fun. I need some time to go back and play with it now! The trick is getting the timing right!
