core. We’ve broken down each video into its main points. Here’s what they said.

Video 1: Get noticed. This video was an introduction to the series. The moderators discussed what attention is and how advertisers and creators can capture attention through video. The host says that by providing location and context in each video, brands can see longer viewing times, better engagement, and “good his KPIs.”

Video 2: Proper video size. Optimal video size on Twitter. The speaker claims that there is practically no difference between 1:1 and 16:9 aspect ratios. How you use the space makes a huge difference in performance. Avoid black bars or letterbox content. What’s the big point? “Impact is not given, it is earned.”

Video 3: Proper video length. Think about how you want your audience to spend time on a piece of content and how you can make that time as valuable as possible. Convey your brand’s key message and keep your audience moving forward.

Video 4: Proper video layout. Where you place your video elements can have a big impact on performance. There are three different locations that represent the primary locations where information resides.

  • upper left
  • upper right
  • bottom center

Think of an envelope with a return address, a mailing address, and a postage stamp.

Video 5: Creating Engagements. “Depth” is a key factor in creating content that people want to engage with. By creating content with depth, you naturally trigger the human brain to engage and interact with it. Creating content with depth can inspire people to action.

Video 6: Provides practicality and clarity. By providing utility, you can give your audience a reason to interact. Answer the question, “What is the value of an engagement, click, or install?” Clarity means simplifying your value proposition so that your audience gets a very clear message.

Video 7: Copy and caption pairing. In this video, I’ve explained three rules for making a big difference in your Tweet copy.

  • keep it simple
  • Be additive, not disjointed or redundant
  • Use hashtags (only one)

Adding captions increased viewership by about 30%, so add captions when you can and get creative.

Video 8: Breaking the 4th Wall. Speak directly to your audience and break down the walls between brands and fans. Capture your audience’s attention quickly through feed breaks, breaking the 4th wall, talking directly to your audience, and more.

Using these tactics can boost metrics such as:

  • total play time
  • brand awareness
  • Message association

What Twitter says.

“It’s always helpful to receive a list of best practices, but turning a do’s and don’ts list into a performant video can be difficult. If implemented in a single ad without a single ad, the content can be watered down and lose its entertainment value and creative spark. It doesn’t just teach you what practices are, it teaches you how to use them to think about and approach your next piece of content.”
