Since I know the first thing people look at before they press play on a YouTube video is its duration, I’m considering Vine. But only to drive traffic to my YouTube channel. Now that doesn’t mean blatant advertising videos. I still will be my creative self. Just saying on my Vine profile and its videos will be links to my YouTube. The shortest video I have is 5:19 (the next one will be even shorter). I think the best way to get people invested in longer videos is to impress them with shorter ones. Especially if that longer video hasn’t attracted the masses yet. People won’t feel like they lost nothing in 6 seconds, but 8 minutes and 19 seconds? Yeah. If I don’t join Vine I will start another YouTube channel that does videos in a minute or less.
Anybody wanna brainstorm with me?
