  • Don’t miss the call-to-action button: After you have their attention, make sure to invite the viewer to take an action, with a call-to-action button. Examples are: ‘tag a friend’, ‘watch the next video’, or ‘take a test drive, now!’, etc.
  • Share already existing videos: If you are short on time, it’s sometimes better to share someone else’s videos. But, an original video should always be your first choice.
