BEST PRACTICES
FACEBOOK VIDEO
BEST PRACTICES FOR
PAGES
@markrrobertson
MOST IMPORTANT BEST PRACTICE = USE SCIENTIFIC METHOD
• Know your audience
• Interact with community
• Test, Test, Test
• Inquire
• Research
• Hypothesize
• Test
• Iterate
Image Source: Christopher Prince Boucher @ FollowThePrince.com
@markrrobertson
FACEBOOK PAGE BEST PRACTICES: THE VIDEO TAB
• Prominently Feature ”Videos” Tab
• Create Featured Video
• Create Organized Playlists
• Include CTA to “Watch Video” (Keep on FB if possible)
@markrrobertson
ENGAGEMENT PLAY – SHOULD YOU HAVE MULTIPLE FACEBOOK PAGES?
• Top publishers create multiple pages by topics/verticals:
• >focus of page = > performance of relevant posts
• More targeted audience interests
• BuzzFeed has >90 Facebook Pages
• Buzzfeed Parents
• Buzzfeed Weddings
• Buzzfeed Geeky
• Unilad has >20 Facebook Pages
• Tasty has pages for geography/language
@markrrobertson
ENABLE PAGE MULTIPLE PAGES = ENABLE PAGE CROSS-POSTING
POSTING SCHEDULE
& FREQUENCY
@markrrobertson
SCHEDULING: UPLOADING BEST DAYS & TIMES
Answers:
• The best days/times to post:
• Wednesday
• Late afternoon -> Late night
Data	via	Tubular	Labs:	Facebook	Videos	Uploaded	Sept.	2016	>500K	Total	Views	Up	to	Dec.	11,	2016	(excluding	Live)
late night 12AM-3AM
early morning 3AM-6AM
morning 6AM-12PM
afternoon 12PM-3PM
late afternoon 3PM-6PM
evening 6PM-9PM
late evening 9PM-12AM
@markrrobertson
DIVERSIFY SCHEDULE & TEST FOR BEST DAYS/TIMES
When is Your Audience Most Active On Facebook?
• In Facebook, go to ”Insights” & click on ”Posts” = data of when your viewers are online.
@markrrobertson
FREQUENCY: MORE MAY BE BETTER! – TEST UPPING FREQUENCY
• Total interactions/day increase linearly with posts per day
• Negative feedback doesn’t seem correlated to posting more frequently
• Some post 30-40 X/day w/less negative feedback vs total engagement.

@markrrobertson
WHAT IF YOUR VIDEOS ARE 16:9?
• Try Borders w/Text Overlays
@markrrobertson
As much as 85% of views happen with sound off, according to multiple publishers.1
EMBRACE THE SILENCE:
Source: http://digiday.com/platforms/silent-world-facebook-video/
@markrrobertson
CAPTURING THE VIEWER: EMBRACE THE SILENCE WITH TEXT IN VIDEO

• Use Text Cards to Advance Narrative
Source:	Refinery29	“USING	DARK	POSTS	TO	A/B	TEST	VIDEOS	ON	FACEBOOK”
STUDY:	A/B	Test	of	Text	Overlays
@markrrobertson
EMBRACING THE SILENCE: TRY CLOSED CAPTIONS & SUBTITLES
One client in a study by 3PlayMedia saw an increase in watch time of 25% with CC
Source:	Facebook
@markrrobertson
FACEBOOK CLOSED CAPTIONS TIP
• <5 Min? Automatic with Paid Promotion
• Have a transcript?
1. Let YouTube do the speech-to-text
1. Download the SRT from your video.
1. Also tools like Downsub.com
2. Re-Upload SRT to Facebook Video
@markrrobertson
RECAP = CAPTURE ATTENTION ASAP FOR VIEWS & ENGAGEMENT
• Dimensions:
• Test Various Aspect Ratios
• Drive Immediate Interest:
• Use Compelling Opening Shots
• Use Strong Visual Cues
• Text, Title Cards, Supers, Brand Assets
• Clear CTA to “Watch” In Post Copy
• Embrace Silence:
• Subtitles/CC & Text Overlays
• Quality audio still important
• Important sound bites after 3 sec.
• Most users will not rewind
A FEW EXTRA TIPS
@markrrobertson
CUSTOM THUMBNAILS STILL IMPORTANT
• Remember: auto-play often disabled + thumbs show in videos tab/library
@markrrobertson
IT’S SOCIAL = INTERACT!
1. Comment first on your video to encourage more
2. Like others’ comments
3. Respond to comments
= >2 MORE views & >3 MORE Interactions
@markrrobertson
BEWARE: LICENSED MUSIC AND OTHER LICENSED CONTENT

TEST, MEASURE &
REPEAT
@markrrobertson
FACEBOOK PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENT
Focus on:
• Interactions vs. Views
• Shares/comments =
powerful engagement
metrics
• Average % video watched
• Also – study negative
feedback
• Hides of posts, spam
reports, unlikes
@markrrobertson
EMBRACE PAID MEDIA – BOOST & TARGET VIEWS
• Many Facebook video publishers leverage
paid promotion to test, drive views, &
expand reach.
• Tips:
• Start Video Ad Boosting when engagement
ratio >2-4% = Cheaper
• Look into FB Dark Posting for A/B and
Multivariate Testing
• Ad thumbnail must have less than 20% text
• BONUS:
• Add CTAs
@markrrobertson
A/B & MULTIVARIATE TESTING TECHNIQUES
1. Segmented Audience Posts (Organic)
• Downsides
• Manual measurement & comparisons
• Start over when winner is determined
2. Unpublished, Paid “Dark” Posts
• Provides views, interactions, expanded
audience, and social proof
• Tips:
• Use Power Editor to create unpublished posts
• Run in Mobile & Desktop News Feeds Only
• Upside vs. traditional video ads:
• Shows in news feeds and not on publisher
page until published
• Winner when published, keeps all views,
interactions
FACEBOOK LIVE
VIDEO TRENDS
@Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights
WHY FACEBOOK LIVE VIDEO?
• Facebook Live – officially launched to all users in April 2016
• Facebook Live Videos are watched 3x Longer than regular
videos
• Facebook is giving greater prominence to live video:
“We're making a small update to News Feed so that Facebook
Live videos are more likely to appear higher in News Feed
when those videos are actually live, compared to after they
are no longer live.” (Facebook 2016)
Source: http://newsroom.fb.com/news/2016/03/news-feed-fyi-taking-into-account-live-video-when-ranking-feed/
@Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights
FACEBOOK LIVE ENGAGEMENT
• Facebook has stated that Live Videos are considered a
separate type of content < BIG clue to video publishers
• Facebook Live streams also generate 10x more engagement
(comments, shares, reactions) than standard Facebook videos

FACEBOOK LIVE ENGAGEMENT
• Top 10 news creators on
Facebook who uploaded
video content between July
21st and October 21st 2016 –
Tubular compared the
performance of their non-live

• As a whole, these creators’
Live videos generated a
higher engagement than their
Non-Live videos. We found

FACEBOOK LIVE VIDEO
TIPS
@Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights
BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION
• Facebook recommends that you broadcast live for at least 20 minutes, although
the feature supports broadcasts of up to 4 hours for live-streams that you’ll want to
archive.
Why?
@Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights
BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION
• One of the big challenges you may face with broadcasting live on Facebook is
getting enough viewers to tune in. Streaming live to a handful of people won’t give
either party a satisfying interactive experience
• Although Live is heavily promoted on Facebook, every brand should aim to
maximize viewers
@Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights
BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION
Pre-broadcast:
• Email blast
• Social media push
• Facebook post
• Facebook ad
• Instagram post or Story
• Ask viewers to subscribe to
notifications
@Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights
BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION
• Don’t be be discouraged if there are only a handful of viewers present when you
first go live - it can still sometimes take time for your audience to find your live-
stream.
• The longer you can keep the broadcast live, the higher the chances are for viewers
to find you.
• The longer you stream, (and the more engaging your live-stream is), the higher the
chances are that you followers will share to their own News Feed. That way, it gets
seen, and shared by others, who may share it themselves, attracting even more
viewers……..
@Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights
BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION
Remember to:
• Add a compelling description
• Keep the (late) audience up to date and engaged
• Interact with the audience via the comments section
@Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights
BEST PRACTICE TIPS: 3 EXTRA TAKEAWAYS
• See what's working with native video uploads - can it be replicated via live?
• Source copyright-free music, or buy a license for background music (Epidemic
Sound or other music libraries)
• Check reactions to previous live-streamed content to see where engagement/views
peaked

  • 57. @Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION • Facebook recommends that you broadcast live for at least 20 minutes, although the feature supports broadcasts of up to 4 hours for live-streams that you’ll want to archive. Why?
  • 58. @Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION • One of the big challenges you may face with broadcasting live on Facebook is getting enough viewers to tune in. Streaming live to a handful of people won’t give either party a satisfying interactive experience • Although Live is heavily promoted on Facebook, every brand should aim to maximize viewers
  • 59. @Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION Pre-broadcast: • Email blast • Social media push • Facebook post • Facebook ad • Instagram post or Story • Ask viewers to subscribe to notifications
  • 60. @Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION • Don’t be be discouraged if there are only a handful of viewers present when you first go live - it can still sometimes take time for your audience to find your live- stream. • The longer you can keep the broadcast live, the higher the chances are for viewers to find you. • The longer you stream, (and the more engaging your live-stream is), the higher the chances are that you followers will share to their own News Feed. That way, it gets seen, and shared by others, who may share it themselves, attracting even more viewers……..
  • 61. @Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights BEST PRACTICE TIPS: LIVE STREAMING DURATION Remember to: • Add a compelling description • Keep the (late) audience up to date and engaged • Interact with the audience via the comments section
  • 62. @Carla_Marshall - @TubularInsights BEST PRACTICE TIPS: 3 EXTRA TAKEAWAYS • See what's working with native video uploads - can it be replicated via live? • Source copyright-free music, or buy a license for background music (Epidemic Sound or other music libraries) • Check reactions to previous live-streamed content to see where engagement/views peaked
