Have you used Twitter Vine? From an Internet marketing perspective, Twitter Vine offers a new medium to promote viral clips. It is also a very active community that is well integrated with other social media websites. Vine videos can only be 6 seconds and they loop. So there is a little background for you. But the reason for this post is not to tell you to use Vine for your business or how to use vine for your business. In fact, I don’t think Vine makes much sense for most business owners at this time. Of course certain fun brands might want to explore Twitter Vine from a social media marketing perspective. But for the most part, I just wanted to write a post to showcase a few fun videos I found and to explore why they went viral.
The Element of Surprise
In most viral Vine videos you will see that they have an element of surprise. In this video, we see the fruit ninja performing his magic but at the last second, something else jumps in.
A Random Accident
In this video it’s a cold day. This guy is on his normal route. Shakespeare said, “Comedy is tragedy plus time.” But it didn’t take long for this one to be funny.
We all know that baby videos are almost always a hit. Take a look at this one, and it makes sense why it would be shared. That and it was set up right with the commentary.
If you do something dumb on camera, there is a god chance that it will get shared. Here we see some stupid kids, but it is pretty funny.
When it all comes down to it, by posting something different, that most people haven’t seen, you will get views.
Twitter Vine Viral Videos
You know viral videos when you see them. Twitter Vine is a tone of fun and I recommend everyone download the app if you want to kill some time. At far as business social marketing on the site, I would address that on a case by case basis.
