A huge appeal of the new year is the possibility of transformation. People like to reshape their life with new resolutions, and their business with updated goals. But transformation can also apply to your video marketing! In the spirit of the new year, here are some silly but actionable resolutions you can use to change your video marketing this year.
Create more Ripl videos
There is some debate on the exact number, but most experts agree you should post on social media 5-10 times per week to gain attention from new followers. This is roughly once or twice a day.
Since video gathers a higher number of views and engagements, videos should be a large component of your social media strategy. We recommend sharing Ripl videos with your followers at least 3 times a week. Ripl makes it easy to share even more frequently.
Save your video as a static image
With Ripl, you can save your creations either as a video or as an image. Although most people use Ripl to create videos, if you need some static images for your business, consider using Ripl to create them.
Some specific ways you can use Ripl images: for your profile pictures, marketing emails, and print marketing ads.
Make a 60-second video
If you’re a Pro user, you can create video ads that are up to 60 seconds long. You can use a longer video to tell your business’s story. Most social media platforms support longer video ads.

Add custom music to your video
If you’re a Pro member, you can add custom music to your Ripl video. While creating your Ripl post, you can tap the music or audio tab, go to More Music and you have the option to select a track from your personal music collection.
Make a video for an obscure holiday
Although the number of random holidays can be annoying, like “National Best Friends Day” or “Star Wars Day”, it can be fun to occasionally participate. If you need a social media idea, we’d recommend doing something different and creating a video for one of these lesser-known events.

Use your own video footage
You can use videos or images to create an animated Ripl ad. Although you can use stock video for your ad, why not use your own video footage?
You can use a video highlighting your business, your product, or your employees for your next video ad. Using real-life videos of your business can make customers feel more drawn to and connected with your business. Read our guide for shooting good videos.
