How to Upload Marketing Videos to Facebook

By Kevin Daum, Bettina Hein, Matt Scott, Andreas Goeldi

To upload a marketing video to Facebook, from either your mobile device (such as a phone or a tablet) or your computer, follow these steps:

  1. Visit your company’s Page.

    On your Wall, you see different sharing options at the top. Click the Video icon. You see two options appear: Record a Video and Upload a Video.

  2. Click Upload a Video.

    Select a video file by clicking the Choose File button. You can only upload videos that are no larger than 1024MB and no longer than 20 minutes.

    Do not upload videos that you don’t have the rights to. You risk them being taken down.

  3. Add a message.

    Add a message that describes your video in the box below it. You also choose whom you want to share it with. Finally, click the Share button to publish it on your Page.

To optimize the exposure of your Facebook videos, go to the Video section of your Page and click the uploaded video. You can now add tags to the video to tell Facebook who’s in the video and where it was taken.

Even more important, the Edit This Video link lets you add a title and a description and choose a thumbnail. Choose one that looks interesting and action packed. Friendly faces are also good choices.
