Suppose you or a client wants some audio put into their Facebook Page –how would you do it? I had a client ask me and I did some research on how to add just an .mp3 file to the page. Here are instructions from Facebook on how to upload a .wav file (windows-type of file). I haven’t tried these instructions and from the comments, it looks like people were having problems with it. But this is not my focus today.
We’re going to add audio to Facebook and make it more interesting by adding pictures!
Instead of Just Audio, Use Audio + Video
It seems backwards, but I think it works. Instead of having just an .mp3 file that might get boring for your fans to listen to, why not add some video to it. Instead of building your project around the video, build it around the audio! That way, your friend or potential customer is fully engaged with both video and audio!
Since we’re talking about audio + video, it seemed to make sense to do a short video on how to get your audio posted to Facebook, a blog, etc. Of course, you’ll need to have your audio clip recorded and saved to your hard drive.
Then, you’ll need to match your message with your images. If it’s a product you are highlighting, take photos of your product and use those to make your message. Be creative, but tasteful. My sample video is not beautiful, but the purpose is to demonstrate the steps.
Now, you’ll have a more powerful, impactful message since you’ve gone beyond text or just a bland audio clip. Give it a try!
