<p>Emerging Social Media: Instagram and Twitter Vine</p> <p> Presented By:</p> <p>Thank you Diana, Jackie and Lucinda for having me this morning..I want to begin this morning with a story..It's a story about a friend of mine..Back in June on the first day Vine was introduced to the Android market, this friend was one of the first people to install the app on their phone. They didn't know what they were doing with the app. All they knew is Twitter owned it and you could make a 6 second video..They spent a lot of time trying to make videos everywhere they seemed to go..the mall, the pizza place..Yet after a whole bunch of spent energy, they just couldn't figure out why they couldn't get any followers or likes for their posts..Sound familiar?I had another client on Instagram. This person had only 74 followers but were following 105 people. Their account like most of them on Instagram was upside down.They didn't understand how to effectively use hashtags for likes.They didn't know the power of the shoutout accounts and how those work.They wondered why they couldn't seem to attract customers to their brand.</p> <p>What Is Emerging Social Media?</p> <p>1. Vine2. Instagram3. Trending Social Media Apps you can use mainly from your Smartphone </p> <p>Basically speaking, this friend did not have at best, a basic understanding of Emerging Social Media</p> <p>When we talk about Emerging Social Media we are talking about the apps Vine and Instagram</p> <p>It also includes any trending social media apps you use mainly from your Smarphone. </p> <p>Why Choose Emerging Social Media?</p> <p>Mobile is HOT! </p> <p>Of the total Internet visits, Americans access 28% more often from their smartphones than their desktops. </p> <p>In the US, 91% people agree that they are within reaching distance of a mobile device 24/7.</p> <p>The other thing this friend didn't understand is why someone should be on emerging social? &gt;&gt;For starters, Mobile is HOT.&gt;&gt;According to a survey by Monetate, Of the total Internet visits, Americans access 28% more often from their smartphones than their desktops. Around $38.8 billion will be spent on shopping through mobile this year in 2013. And its easier more than ever for these consumers to multitask and see the product on emerging social and go to a site and buy it outright. Where e-commerce website traffic is concerned, 21% of visitors are now accessing web pages from their smartphone.&gt;&gt;Also In the US, 91% people agree that they are within reaching distance of a mobile device 24/7 and of course, when they have to make a buying decision it's more likely going to be made from mobile.</p> <p>A Closer Look:</p> <p>When should you decide to use Vine?</p> <p>When should you decide to use Instagram?</p> <p>How do you use Vine and Instagram to Get Followers?</p> <p>How do you use Vine and Instagram to Get Likes?</p> <p>Best Practices</p> <p>How to convert followers into business leads</p> <p>So this morning we're going to take a closer look at Vine and Instagram specifically and answer these questions so you're not like my friend on emerging social media and doing more shouting than gaining possible customers. By the way, that friend actually happened to be me.:We'll take a look at when should you or a client decide to use Vine.When should you use Instagram?What the pros and cons are of each?How you use both of them to get followers and get likesBest practices for each...How to convert followers into business leads</p> <p>What Is Vine?</p> <p>Online video and social networking mobile app created by Twitter</p> <p>Allows users to create and share short, 6 second looping video clips</p> <p>Functions in some ways like Twitter</p> <p>Introduced to iPhone in January </p> <p>Introduced to the Android Market in June (16M Downloads in first day!)</p> <p>swirly vine from mckenna71 via stock.xchng</p> <p>So before taking a look at when you should decide to Use Vine or Instagram, let's remind you a little about the two platforms.&gt;&gt;Vine is the online video, social networking mobile app created by Twitter that allows users to create and share short, 6 second looping video clips. Actually the videos are 6.5 seconds but whose counting, right??&gt;&gt;In many ways Vine functions like Twitter. You have people you are following, and followers.&gt;&gt;The iOS app came out in January of this past year. &gt;&gt;Android introduced it in June and on the first day it hit the Android market Vine received an unprecedented 16 Million Downloads.</p> <p>What is Instagram?</p> <p>Online photo/video sharing social media network</p> <p>Owned by Facebook</p> <p>Enables users to take pictures, apply digital filters to them and share them</p> <p>Launched 15-Second Video feature on June 20th</p> <p>Where Twitter Vine just allows you to created a 6 second looping video, Instagram owned by Facebook started out with just pictures and enabling users to take photos, apply digital filters to them and share them. &gt;&gt;The way it started is the app confined photos to a square shape, in contrast to the 16:9 ratio used by mobile cameras and allowed users to share it.&gt;&gt; In a venture which has been seen as some as Facebook's way of competing with Twitter's Vine video-sharing application, Instagram incorporated video sharing in June 2013, allowing its users to record and share videos lasting for up to 15 seconds.</p> <p>What is Instagram?</p> <p>Online photo/video sharing social media network</p> <p>Owned by Facebook</p> <p>Enables users to take pictures, apply digital filters to them and share them</p> <p>Launched 15-Second Video feature on June 20th</p> <p>Here's a side by side in depth comparison from Tech-Crunch of some more detailed features and benefits of both Vine and Instagram.In addition to the side by side time comparisons, you see here users can apply filters to Instagram videos, just like you can pictures on Instagram. This is something Vine videos dont have. Remember when Instagram was first making waves, a lot of it was focused around its filter feature it made amateur photos look professional and all you had to do was, well, pick a filter. </p> <p> Both platforms let you shoot multiple, disjointed clips and string them together. However, Instagram will let users delete the last clip that they shot in a series, just in case it was a bad take. You are not allowed to delete the second clip in a series, without deleting the fourth and third first. In other words, you can only remove the most recent clip taken. Vine, on the other hand, doesnt let you edit at all. </p> <p>You cannot import videos on either one. You have to shoot your Vineable or Instagrammable video within the respective apps.</p> <p>Both Vine and Instagram will let you switch back and forth between front- and rear-facing cameras while shooting.</p> <p>Instagram also boasts video stabilization in what they call their cinema feature which will stabilize and doctor any shaky recording, another feature Twitter cant offer.</p> <p>&gt;&gt;So Now the BIG QUESTION:</p> <p>&gt;&gt;While many comment on the rivalry of Instagram vs. Vine, the problem isnt which is a better platform. The problem is that companies have posted content on both sites and gotten no results. Is it a fault of the platforms? Think again. </p> <p>&gt;&gt;Before commenting about how either platform may outperform the other, we need to focus on how each platform should be used.</p> <p>When Should You Decide to Use Vine?</p> <p>New Product Features</p> <p>How-to Videos</p> <p>Invitations to events</p> <p>Video teasers</p> <p>Live interaction with customers</p> <p>&gt;&gt;For Vine, Since you only have six seconds, flashing a feature or new product gives just enough time for users to want to find out more.&gt;&gt;How To Videos and Do it Yourself videos are extremely popular ((how to make food products))&gt;&gt;Also invitations to events, video teasers.&gt;&gt;You can also use VINE to interact LIVE with your customers...</p> <p>Here is an example of how Honda used Vine to respond to a customer recently in quirky real-time responses and advertise for the Summer Sales Event.</p> <p>((Read Tweet from consumer and read reply from Honda))</p> <p>((WATCH VIDEO)){WATCH VIDEO}</p> <p>When Should You Decide to Use Vine?</p> <p>It's a destination</p> <p>Heavily engaged subculture</p> <p>Cross-over community </p> <p>New Vine Celebrities</p> <p>For many marketers, Twitter Vine isn't just a tool, it's really becoming a destination if you will.</p> <p>&gt;&gt;Get into a conversation with someone who spends a lot of time on Vine and you'll hear about a new, heavily engaged subculture. Vine producers tend to play within certain genres and styles, generally in fast comedic situations. A really good Vine creator has their own unique fingerprint. It's an important part of the draw. If you've seen enough clips in a split second, you know whose work you are watching.</p> <p>&gt;&gt;It's a crossover community.Remember when it was a big deal for Different Strokes cast to appear on facts of life? Vine creators include each other in their videos in cameo roles and routinely share their favorite Vine posts. </p> <p>&gt;&gt;We're starting to see the beginning of Vine Celebrities</p> <p>Here's a look at some of the famous faces from Vine...Anyone know who these people are?? Well, Spend time on Vine and you'll get to know them pretty quickly. You may not recognize them from their pictures here But when we take a look at their videos I bet you will. &gt;&gt; Iman Crosson is known for his outrageous impersonations of Obama. He's got 763,100 followers on Vine and only follows 51 people. His handle is alphacat &gt;&gt;Dawn Siff sent out what marketers call the first official vine job resume. Afterwards she appeared on The Today Show with Matt Lauer and later landed a job as a reporter at The Economist</p> <p>((WATCH VIDEO)){WATCH VIDEO}</p> <p>When Should You Decide to Use Instagram Video?</p> <p>Promotional campaigns</p> <p>Video Series</p> <p>Commercial Style Videos</p> <p>When should you decide to use Instagram&gt;&gt;In addition to taking and sharing photographs which you can't do on Vine, you can use Instagram Video to do:&gt;&gt;Promoitonal Campaigns: Having 9 more seconds to feature a video can showcase a bit more about your product.&gt;&gt;Starbucs uses Instagram to show off their personality by creating a theme and carrying it out with a few videos in a series&gt;&gt;Humor is difficult to achieve in video but with the additional time, your videos are able to simulate TV commercials better. </p> <p>A brand that has done very well in incorporating humor into their videos is Taco Bell most recently with their video for the NEW Fiery Dorritos Locos Tacos</p> <p>((WATCH VIDEO)){WATCH VIDEO}</p> <p>You can see in this brand adoption study from Simply Measured that many brands are choosing Instagram as their video vehicle. In fact, twice as many top 100 brands use Instagram Video as Vine.</p> <p>Pros and Cons</p> <p>VINE INSTAGRAM </p> <p>Its no secret that share-ability is what brands are looking for with videos. Sharability is one of the main pros and cons to consider when deciding which platform to use.</p> <p>Instagram has Vine topped on the front of sharing options. Where Vine only lets you share to Vine, Facebook, and Twitter, Instagram lets you share videos to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, and foursquare, as well as through email.</p> <p>Checking Instagram used to take about five minutes and then I was out, ready to move on to something else. With video it really breaks that experience and takes longer. Video breaks that experience</p> <p>Its possible to hide videos from your feed. But to do that you have to consciously choose to avoid the video feature. </p> <p>How To Get Followers on Vine</p> <p>Follow People Who Are Following Followback Accounts</p> <p>Manually flush unfollowers by deleting Following list and then following back Followers</p> <p>Re-Vine Videos from top Viners</p> <p>Patience! </p> <p>To get followers on Vine:&gt;&gt; follow people who follow following back accounts. ((Show what these look like))&gt;&gt;Manually flush unfollowers by deleting Following list and then following back followers&gt;&gt;Re-vine&gt;&gt; Have Patience: People don't check Vine as often as Instagram because it's a slower more thoughtful experience. When you launch Vine, they know what they're getting into. Rather like Pocket or Instapaper, its a conscious decision that users have the time to give the app their full attention.&gt;&gt;Also, because it is a video sharing service its almost impossible to sprint up and down the home feed in Vine. Videos often take a moment to load and it takes exactly six seconds to watch each one. Vine is a measured process, scrolling and pausing to review each in turn, possibly waiting for it to loop a couple of times and then adding a Like or comment underneath.</p> <p>How To Get Followers on Instagram</p> <p>Follow People Who Are Following Shoutout Accounts</p> <p>Flush unfollowers using apps like InstaFollow or JustUnfollow.</p> <p>Content is key!</p> <p>Keep your account right side up, not upside down!</p> <p>To get followers on Vine:&gt;&gt; follow people who follow following back accounts.
