Your community and customers are the most authentic voice available for your brand or business. So what better way to take advantage of their videos, than by posting them on your website.

Social media: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and more
Share your video everywhere and anywhere. There are few different ways to share your videos on social media.

Emails and newsletters
Share your user-generated videos in your email marketing campaigns. Add them into your nurture or sales email sequences or simply send them in your monthly newsletters.

Create internal messages, share words amongst your team and boost morale with video messages produced and created by your community, for your community.
Share your video on either YouTube or Vimeo, create a catchy thumbnail and add an engaging title. Then share it everywhere and let the inbuilt SEO from YouTube work its magic.
Live and virtual events
When it comes to events there are a number of ways to use your user-generated videos. If you made them prior to the event, you can showcase them in the background or make the video a feature of the event and get everyone to watch them on the big screen.
Another fun and engaging way is to place the QR code around the room on posters or share it on your virtual platform. Ask your audience to share their videos from the event and use it to create content to promote both the success of your event and future events to come
