How to MasterVertical Video
A four-part email series covering everything you need to know about vertical video and the stories format.
The importance of vertical video for marketers
We’re in the midst of a video revolution. The traditional 16:9, landscape format is being replaced by a new, 9:16, vertical format that has fast become the default for video creation and consumption.
Vertical video used to be seen as a mistake —something people do when they forget to turn their phone horizontally while filming — but since the rise of platforms like Snapchat, vertical video has taken over and become an innovative way for individuals and businesses to tell stories.
Over one billion people use the vertical video format on Facebook-owned properties like Instagram and Whatsapp alone — and even YouTube has now embraced vertical video on the web and mobile.
So how do you create content for the vertical format? And what should you create? Those are the questions many marketers are asking right now. And when it comes to vertical video, almost every filmmaking rule has been broken. It’s a blank slate full of opportunity.
Vertical video has changed video production. Anyone can now create incredible video content from a smartphone — no need for cameras, expensive editing suites, it can all be done in the palm of your hand.
This four-part series will take you on a journey through the world of vertical video and stories, helping you to understand why vertical video is important for your business, what platforms to use and exactly how to get started.
