Today I tell you how to make videos for social media. And above all, I will show you how to combine multiple videos in a single file, quickly and easily. A particularly useful feature for my trip to Bali.
This is because in reality I have never devoted much time to making videos except for those of the IG stories.
I realize, however, that videos are becoming increasingly important and that I have to adapt.
The part that has always put me in the most doubt is that of joining more videos together, which in this trip to Bali is extremely necessary, since I would like to create a video of all the stages of the journey.
I am absolutely not a video maker but I am a google user and I want to share with you an easy easy program that I found to join videos. It’s called Movavi and can be used only from PC / MAC. I tried it and it seemed easy to me. I have already combined several pieces of my trip and I’m waiting to enter the last two days. If you want to know more click here to read the Movavi manual.
And if you want to see the result, tune in to my IGTV soon where you’ll see the report of my trip to Bali.
And speaking of social we spend two words on how to make videos for social media? Yes, because we have to make a clarification: the videos for Instagram have a different format between them depending on whether they are put in the feed or in the stories and they also have a different format from that of Youtube or Facebook.
And this is a real tragedy because we either choose a single channel or we have to make different videos.
How to make videos for social media then? Here is a quick and quick guide:
Instagram Stories and IGTV
The format is vertical and while for stories the maximum duration is 15 seconds, for IGTV it can be up to 15 minutes. Then I want to see how you load them because everything hangs in less than a minute!
The format can be both horizontal and vertical as it can be adapted to the required size on the feed. The maximum duration is one minute.
Youtube and Facebook
The format is horizontal and the duration is infinite (as long as you want to spend 6 days glued to the PC to wait for the video to load) and you can share the video posted on Youtube on FB, however I suggest you upload it from scratch to FB because has greater visibility.
In short, in the end I had to surrender to having to learn how to make videos for social media, for sure I prefer photos but for a trip full of scenographic contexts like Bali video is definitely the best way to collect all the memories.
What format will I choose? Since I think of publishing it exclusively on Instagram, I will choose the vertical format!
