Steal this social growth hack from Nvidia and SaaStr

Short video is the #1 way that brands grow on social today.

But you probably don’t have time for it, right?

Neither do marketers at Nvidia and SaaStr — That’s why they use AI tools that do all the legwork for them, allowing them to post hundreds of shorts and get hundreds of thousands of views.

Here’s their strategy that you can rip:

  1. Start with any of your company’s video assets, like a webinar

  2. Upload it to OpusClip, and the AI will cut it into clips with branded captions, B-Roll, and more

  3. Use OpusClip’s social media scheduler to queue 2-3 clips per day.

  4. Repeat 1 → 3

1. Implied Endorsement:

  • Technique: Utilizes implied endorsement to leverage social proof, subtly suggesting popular approval without overt declarations.

  • Impact: This method enhances credibility and trust among viewers, capitalizing on the communal influence prevalent on social platforms.

2. Engaging Visual Effects:

  • Technique: Incorporates green screen and split-screen effects to maintain high viewer engagement and interest throughout the video.

  • Impact: These dynamic visuals keep the content engaging, helping it stand out in the fast-paced TikTok feed.

3. Building Anticipation:

  • Technique: Introduces the desired outcome before showcasing the product itself, effectively building anticipation and curiosity.

  • Impact: This approach ensures that viewers are hooked by the potential benefits before they even see the product, increasing the likelihood of a positive reception.

4. Authentic Presentation:

  • Technique: This avoids a sales tone to foster authenticity and build a genuine connection with the audience.

5. Platform-Specific Content:

  • Technique: Tailors the pace and style of videos to fit the unique preferences of TikTok and Instagram users.

  • Impact: Ensures that content feels native and relevant, which is crucial for engagement on platform-specific feeds.

6. Relatability and Trend Integration:

  • Technique: Aligns content with popular formats like 'Get Ready With Me' (GRWM), tapping into existing trends within the beauty community.

  • Impact: This relatability encourages viewers to engage more deeply with the content, increasing its potential to go viral.

This strategic use of viral hacks on TikTok demonstrates a powerful way to engage and expand an audience. This approach not only amplifies their presence on social media but also sets a benchmark for others looking to capture attention in a saturated market.

INSTAGRAM

👀 Instagram's Algorithm Update: Elevating Original Content and Small Creators
Insights from Social Media Today

What’s Up? Instagram has rolled out a significant algorithm update aimed at enhancing the visibility of original content and supporting emerging creators, marking a shift in the platform's content strategy.

The Breakdown:

  • Discouraging Reposts: The new algorithm will penalize aggregator accounts by reducing the visibility of reposted content that appears more than ten times within 30 days. This move aims to curtail the prevalence of non-original content in user feeds.

  • Labeling and Crediting Original Content: To ensure original creators receive proper recognition, Instagram will now label reposted content, directing users to the source. The updated algorithm will favor original content in the recommendations feed, especially when duplicates are identified. 

  • Boosting New Creators: Adjustments have been made to the content ranking process to increase the visibility of newer, smaller creators, helping them to gain exposure and grow their audience more effectively.

Implications of the Update:

  • Creators and brands may need to adjust their strategies to focus more on originality to align with the new algorithm preferences, potentially leading to a shift in the types of content produced.

  • This could boost morale among creators and brands who have previously seen reposts of their work receive more attention than their original posts, encouraging continued innovation and engagement.

The impact of these changes on user engagement and satisfaction will be critical to monitor, as it could significantly influence content discovery and consumption patterns on the platform.
