Keep in mind that people won't sit through long videos on Facebook. After two minutes, viewers' engagement significantly drops. That's why it's important to keep it short and sweet. If you're not sure how to keep it short, then break your video up into segments, creating a series of videos, and release them over time.

It's also important to utilize what Facebook has to offer. Instead of using YouTube or another third party site, upload your videos directly to the social platform. On average, these videos receive twice as many views and three times as many shares compared to videos coming from other sites.
