If I see a cool video – sure I’m going to share it on my wall. Make it easy for me! Incorporate a share button in the video or somewhere near it where I can see it.
Write the post for me.
Yes. Write the post you want people to read on my wall. Maybe I won’t like it and I will delete it or change it. Or maybe I will and I will leave it just the way you wrote it.
Add a link for your video in your e-mail signature.
If you use e-mail marketing as a tool for getting new leads, it will be a great idea to put a link of your explainer video in your signature. That will make it easier for your potential customers to understand your business and if you make a good impression – they can share it.
Make your call to action about sharing.
