Tips For Creating The Perfect Facebook Cover Video

Tips For Creating The Perfect Facebook Cover Video

In mid 2017, Facebook launched a much awaited feature; Cover Videos. This was thought to be revolutionary for business pages as videos are proven to have a considerably higher conversion rate than images and to grab attention for a comparatively longer time span in this day of mindless scrolling and browsing.

Facebook cover videos provide an instant attraction - you are likely to get more followers, likes, engagement and ultimately higher levels of brand awareness with an eye-catching cover video.

However, uploading visual content on Facebook can be tricky.

     5. Add your own text, logos or images to the video

IMPORTANT: Facebook often crops cover videos according to various mobile/desktop viewing requirements. The best option is to make sure all your important content is in the blue area highlighted below. You can still add content in the grey area, but it MIGHT get cropped on different devices.
