These 4 Examples Prove That Facebook Videos are CRUSHING IT Right Now!

These_4_Examples_Prove_That_Facebook_Videos_are_CRUSHING_IT_Right_Now-lsfacebook videosHave you heard the rumors about Facebook videos?

I've been testing them a lot on my pages -- and the results are impressive!

I'm not talking about YouTube links shared on Facebook. I'm talking about uploading a video file directly to your page -- as a Facebook video.

In this article, I'll present Facebook case studies for:

  • 2 small local pages
  • my own page
  • a larger page of a former member of the band Chicago

I wanted to test videos on a variety of pages -- and these 4 provided a nice mix.

I'll illustrate how video increased reach, clicks, Likes, comments & shares by showing you the raw data from actual Facebook Insights.

Once you see this data, you'll agree that videos are going crazy on Facebook right now!
