Dear Trimax Solutions user,

Embrace video marketing easily with Vine on Twitter Since its launch in January 2013, marketers are increasingly delivering creative ways to promote their brands with the new mobile video app Vine which is available on Twitter. This new social media feature allows businesses to upload a 6 second video, which plays on a loop system, combining imagery and sounds to create powerful content. Twitter has embraced video marketing and optimised it by including Vine into its social media platform with its 6 second limit.

With the rise of video marketing there is an increasing amount of visual content vying for our time and consideration leading to reduced attention levels. Visible Measures state that with visual content you should “expect to lose 20% of your audience within the first 10 seconds of playback”. As Vine only allows videos of up to 6 seconds, it allows marketers to get their whole message across whilst they still have the viewer’s attention, meaning more effective delivery of the message. As Vine caters specifically to mobile devices which can be viewed on the go, it enables amateur videos to be created focusing on the quality of the content not the quality of the video. Vine makes it easier for a business to showcase its’ brand easily and effectively without a huge budget.

According to Vine "Posts on Vine are about abbreviation, the shortened form of something larger” The app is currently only available as a free download on the iPhone and iPod touch but is soon to be available on other platforms. Anyone can use Vine you don’t need to be a member of Twitter to use the app and posts can easily be shared on Twitter and Facebook, with the possibility to share on other social media networks in the pipeline.

Vine aims to make video marketing more accessible to businesses with the introduction of concise videos focusing on quality content and creativity
