The easiest way to stay on top of your Instagram video marketing is to batch create videos in advance. Save valuable hours and money, as well as keep your followers entertained with regular and relevant video content. Instead of finding a video to post directly from your camera roll, editing it on Instagram, creating a caption and tags all in one moment, save time and try content batching.
Batching content lets brands create all the captions and visuals during a set period. Rather than writing captions one by one each time you feel like posting, they’re already done for you if you set aside time for content batching.
5. Editing hacks for consistency on Instagram
Each business Instagram profile usually has its aesthetic. Followers can quickly browse an image or video and immediately associate a brand with it. Either through consistent and recognizable hashtags, filters, transitions, or even video editing styles.
