Tutorial: how to make a sharable video graphic

Repurposing your content is an effective way to create more in less time.

To learn the specifics of repurposing your online content, read our blog post on the topic here.

In this blog post, I will be sharing the individual steps for making a sharable video graphic.

This is specific for MacBook users and we will be using the Keynote software that should already be on your Apple computer.

A sharable video graphic looks something like this…

It is usually a sneak-peak clip of a longer video you have available elsewhere.

For example, let’s say you went LIVE on your Facebook business page and have downloaded the replay to upload onto your YouTube Channel.

Now you want your ideal clients/customers to go and watch that uploaded video on your YouTube Channel. So, you are going to show a one minute preview of the contents of that video to peak their interest.

This is what the sharable video graphic will do. You can post it on your Instagram feed or Facebook page promoting the new available video on your YouTube Channel.
