Keep Your Videos Short

The shorter the videos the better.

To get the maximum impact out of your videos try to keep them under 5 minutes. The most optimal length is 2 minutes.

This means that you don’t have much time to get to the point, but this can be a good thing.

Making a video is like create a Tweet; you have to direct and to the point because you don’t have a lot of space or time.

This will result in your videos being short, sassy and vibrant. You know that you don’t have long so you won’t be tempted to waffle. Instead you’ll be getting to the point quickly, and inspiring your customers to want more.

As well, don’t forget to include the link to your Fashmates Closet in the video and also in the description box under it. That way, watchers can click it immediately and start buying.
