If your people hang out on Instagram, video’s the best way to get their attention. Images are cool, but they make up most of the feed and get lost. That’s why you need to interrupt the pattern and add some movement to the mix.
Let’s look at the facts. 500+ million people log into Instagram every day and spend serious time there. The time spent watching videos has also been increasing by 80% year on year, so people clearly like it. This makes right now the perfect time to make a video for Instagram. Whether it’s in-feed video or video ads, some brands have already experienced the thrill of success.
Benefit Cosmetics ran a series of three short video ads that focused on creative storytelling and saw a considerable increase in both ad lift and reach. Zee.Dog saw a 290% increase in sales last Black Friday after using Instagram video ads and Story ads. And it’s not just them.
The interface has virtually no learning curve, the stock assets are professional, the music choices are solid, and the price point is spot-on.

YouTube videos tend to be much longer and more detailed than Instagram videos, so a lot of creators don’t cross-promote them. However, Instagram can be the perfect way to tell your followers about what’s going on on your YouTube channel.
Instagram’s video limit for an in-feed video is 60 seconds, so you can’t usually upload a complete YouTube video to Instagram. What you can do is edit it down to its best parts.
Content marketer Brittany Berger uses Instagram to promote her YouTube channel by creating short teaser-style videos that introduce her longer YouTube videos.
So how do you do this? You’ll need to:
Decide on the video’s purpose: Why are you sharing this video to Instagram? What will it help you do? What action do you want your followers to take after seeing it? This will help you figure out the best way to edit the video.
Edit your video: Create your video by trimming the content down to the introduction or put together a trailer with a couple of great points that tease the rest of the content!
Set the format: Convert your video to the right format (MP4).
Upload to Instagram: To upload the video to Instagram you’ll need to download it to your phone’s library or a cloud-based app, then upload it through Instagram.
With a bit of creativity, you can turn your YouTube assets into effective Instagram posts!
Remember to track your video’s performance so you can tweak your strategy over time and keep improving the quality of your content. Good luck!
