    what are some good cover photos for facebook

    This is a truly unique facebook cover I created myself – grabs attention, right? Video is even better.

    But wait!

    Everyone else is using them (well, they’re free right!) and they are just… stills.

    And what Facebook’s learnt from Youtube is that video attracts people.

    And that’s what you want, right? So, to attract people you need…

    Unique Facebook Covers… With Video

    Now, for your fan page,  cute fb cover photos don’t do it anymore.

    Use video instead. Get in now and you’ll be ahead of 98% of business on Facebook.

    Your video can be up to 90 seconds long – shorter is better – around 30-60 is great.

    Which means plenty of time to show people:

    • the very best of your work
    • how your vistor can get hold of you
    • your logo or picture
    • your marketing message
    • your call to action

    (A typical Super Bowl ad is just 30 seconds – you can fit a lot into a short video!)

    Now it’s really easy to load a video into your fan page and I show you exactly how in the video just down the page.

    But first, why would you use a video?

    When a vistor lands on your page, guess what they notice first! Yep, your page’s cover. And there’s only so much you can pack into a photo. A video you can tell your brand’s story so much better. And you can fit in your logo, your contact details, and a call to action as well. You can pack much more in even a short video – a photo collage with so much in would look  impossibly cramped, and just wrong.

    how to make facebook cover video

    This is a unique Facebook cover – a video made for purpose – fits perfectly – grabs your visitors attention.

    But there’s more to it than the story you can tell.

    As Holywood, Youtube, and now Facebook know, video grabs people’s attention. So a video cover may help keep people on your page for longer. Because whatever you’re doing with your fan page – you need to grab people by the eyeballs – before they head off to your competitors.

    And for sure, there’s more chance they’ll reach out to you if your contact details and call to action are right there at the top of the page, so they don’t have to search for them! Is a video cover the answer to all your marketing needs? Well of course not. But it’s like an arms race out there. You need the latest technology.

    So your message continues to stand out.

    What you’ll have seen in the video is that, if you start from a ‘normal’ 16×9 one, you have to crop the top and bottom.

    Which can make your existing videos useless.

    That’s on mobile – and as you know it’s better to optimize for mobile these days.
