HOW TO PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS TO GET MORE VIEWS

by Calvin Bonifacio | Jul 11, 2018 | Instagram, Social Media |

Alright so you've decided to dive into IGTV. Congrats! we need more of your content on IGTV. In any case, now what? How would you inspire individuals to watch your recordings? Instagram is doing their best to elevate you to your present status, yet in the event that your supporters are "simply numbers", and not a drew in group of onlookers who are quick to hear what you need to state, they're not going to be keen on your posts. Also, if they're not inspired by your recordings, you're probably going to either get muted or unfollowed on Instagram. Ouch! In any case, that implies less perspectives. While engaged and bona fide following is an entire other point we'll cover in another post, today we'll discuss how to elevate your IGTV recordings to get more perspectives. Furthermore, the reward is you'll get more endorsers and Instagram adherents, because of IGTV. What's more, obviously, that implies getting your message and your business out to more individuals. Thus, how about we go!

USE FACEBOOK TO PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS

First thing you want to do is to always share your videos to Facebook. Facebook owns Instagram, and they desperately want to help boost the number of people watching IGTV. Because of that, they make it super easy not only to share your videos to Facebook, BUT your videos are also shown natively on Facebook. That means when your Facebook fans want to watch your videos, they can watch them directly on Facebook. They don't have to click away. TIP: Make sure you click on the “share to Facebook” button at the time of uploading your video to IGTV. Sharing with a link to Facebook after you've uploaded means your followers need to click away from Facebook to see your videos.

USE INSTA STORIES TO PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS (10k+ users)

Just like you see teaser trailers for movies, you can create a little trailer on Insta Stories to promote your IGTV Video. Now this doesn't have to be difficult or technical. You can easily create an image on Canva to let people know you have a new story, or you can simply do a super quick and casual video letting people know why they should watch your video. Now for the cool part! Instagram let's your Insta Story viewers “swipe up” on your Insta Story to go straight to your IGTV video. Swiping up used to be only for Instagram accounts that had 10,000+ followers. But for promoting IGTV, anyone can use the “swipe up” feature on their Insta Stories to direct people to their IGTV videos.

USE INSTA STORIES TO PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS (10k+ users)

1. Create your Insta Story by either uploading a video or an image which talks about the video you want to promote
2. Click on the little “link” icon at the top of your screen (as shown in the image on lower left)
3. Click on the “+ IGTV Video” link (as shown in the image below)

4. Your videos will now appear on your screen. Choose which of your videos you want to promote and tap to select.
5. Upload your Insta Story
That's it! So easy.

How to link your IGTV videos to your Insta Stories:

1. Create your Insta Story by either uploading a video or an image which talks about the video you want to promote
2. Tag your page and direct them to click on your igtv channel (as shown in the image below)
4. Your videos will now appear on your screen. Choose which of your videos you want to promote and tap to select.
5. Upload your Insta Story

USE INSTAGRAM LIVE TO PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS

This one you'll use a little differently to Insta Stories. With Instagram Live, I would do the regular live video you're planning on, but also talk about your latest IGTV video. Maybe the topic you cover on IGTV goes a bit deeper on a point you make on your Instagram Live video. In this case you can do a “call to action” on your live video to let your audience that they can hear more about this topic on your latest IGTV video. It's kind of like YouTubers add a link in their current video, to promote another video to keep people watching.

PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST

Okay, so this one might seem a bit strange. Why would you want to promote your IGTV videos to your email list? I mean, you already have your audience on email which is the result that most business owners are looking for. Here's three great reasons:
1. Always #1: you're adding value to your email audience. You're giving them some more valuable content to help them with their needs.
2. It gives you another opportunity to connect with your email subscribers.
3. You want to show Instagram you are doing your best to promote IGTV. More people coming in to your IGTV channel, will help you with the IGTV algorithm we just know Instagram is going to spring on us soon.

PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS ON PINTEREST

Yes! You can promote your IGTV videos on Pinterest. Okay, now it's not as easy as just clicking on the Pin-It button, but it's still doable. Here's how to Pin your IGTV Videos on Pinterest. Oh, and this can be phone on your phone or computer.
1. Create a pin in relaythat, adobe spark, or your preferred graphics app
2. Go to your IGTV channel to copy your link. If using your phone: choose the video you want the link to and tap on the three dots at the bottom of your video. This will give you the copy link option. On your computer, go to Instagram, click on your profile and select “IGTV”. Click on the video you want to promote and copy the URL.
3. Go to Pinterest and click on the red “+” sign at the top right corner of your screen (as shown below)





4. Drag & Drop or Upload your image as shown below. And paste the link/URL to your video below it.
5. Upload your pin and choose the Pinterest Board you want to put your pin in.
That's it! All done. Now you can go ahead and re-pin that video to your Pinterest Group Boards too for maximum exposure.

PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS TO TWITTER

Tweet something about your IGTV video topic that will entice your Twitter followers to want to view your video and add a link. Even better, create an eye-catching graphic to promote your video to Twitter. Not a lot of Twitter followers? That’s okay make sure you use your Twitter Hashtags to get some attention.

PROMOTE YOUR IGTV VIDEOS ON FORUMS

Maybe you're on Reddit or other traditional groups and forums. And no doubt you're on more than a few Facebook groups. These are great places to promote your videos. Before you go jumping in though, a word of advice: no one likes reading promotional posts. When I say promote your videos on groups, I mean in a very natural and helpful way. And only IF the rules of the group allow it. And only IF you already actively participate in the group without promoting yourself.
Here's two genuine ways to approach this (again, if it's within the group rules that you can post outside links).
1. Take note of conversations that have been happening lately. If you find that people have been taking about a subject that you've created a video on, then go ahead and start a post by saying that you've noticed a lot of questions around a certain topic, and you're sharing a video you create which they might find helpful.
2. Watch the conversations as per usual and participate genuinely. When a post comes up where your video would be helpful, then add a comment saying that you have some helpful thoughts on that subject, and link to your video.
Promoting your videos in group in this way, is the same as a natural conversation with a friend where you recommend something or give advice. Whereas jumping in and promoting without conversation, is a lot like that pushy sales person, that we just know cares about nothing else but pushing a sale. No one wants to be that person.
So, there you are! Lots of options for you to promote your IGTV videos.
