Vine launches – best ways to use it for business marketing

vine for business, vine for marketing, vine how to New social network Vine launched last week – here are some of the earliest marketing posts shared by brands online, one week in….

Twitter’s new video sharing app, Vine, was launched last week.  There aren’t many like it: simple apps, released with very little fanfare and publicity, that generate buzz.

But Vine is one such innovation.

Likened to Instagram but for video, it offers a simple way to give others an insight into your business, your life and your world through 6 second looping videos.  It’s not complicated, but does it offer potential for marketing your business?

The following short vids have been shared on Vine this morning:

  • someone taking an early flight and going through security
  • a little boy colouring in his homework
  • a coffee machine creating a delicious brew
  • a cat running around someone’s living room

None of them ground-breaking, none of them designed to promote anything.  But for business, there may be more to it.

Here are some of our favourite
