You can use Vine to propagate your traditional content as well. Not only are you informing a different subset of your consumers’ culture, you are strengthening internal link between your various associated media. USA Today has done this beautifully with Vines of their headlines.
These methods are only the beginning of what is possible with Vine. You may consider a series, with 6-second episodes in a continuous plot. You can also open your Vine video marketing strategy to your customers and let them submit their own Vines for prizes. There’s no limit to what you can do, aside from the 6 seconds. Use the social media tools at your disposal, and your visibility will increase. Your brand will become more refined if you let it explore its creative side in marketing with Vine.
