Get the most out of Vine with these Vine tricks and tips!
To YouTube creators, Vine might seem kind of redundant. After all, it’s a social media website that’s based on short videos. Why should you bother with any Vine tricks or tips?
Well, let me tell you. Vine is a strong way to promote your videos and grow your audience if you use it right. You can use the similarities in both platforms to your advantage, and this is how.
TGN Partners get access to Epoxy, which is a service that lets you manage all of your social media accounts, including Vine, in one place. It has a super rad feature that lets you create short clips from your YouTube videos and post them onto Vine.
That’s right, you don’t have to go and make a separate video yourself, you can do it right inside of Epoxy. It’s free and incredibly useful and time-saving.
If you don’t have Epoxy, you can create your own six second clip of your video and post it onto Vine with a link. If it’s a good cut–funny or epic moments work the best–people will follow and click through to your video. It’s all about creating a clip that is catchy and representative of your work. It’s a tease and some insight into what you’re all about.
You can also create original clips of yourself or what you’re doing and promote your channel that way. If you’re good at comedy, consider using Vine traditionally and do a skit that will grab people’s attention. If it represents that same you that’s in your videos, then people will naturally look for more of your work.
Other times, you can use Vine to field questions from your audience and answer via it too. This is extra cool because people get to feel like they’re speaking with your directly and get a little bit of a shout out when you upload each Vine. This is great for communicating with your viewers and keeping them up-to-date on what you’re doing.
Vine is used best when you keep your clips succinct, clear, and relevant. If you’re out catching Pokemon with your phone, you should upload a clip. People will pick up on your constant posts and will be encouraged to follow you. Once that happens, they’ll see all of your updates and you’ll have a higher chance of them visiting your YouTube channel.

Like most social media websites, Vine is great if you keep it updated and consistent. You need to use it as a way to bolster your YouTube audience, not as something you do on-and-off. It’s a powerful tool if you use it to its fullest potential.
Just make sure to have it linked on your YouTube channel and to promote it on your videos. Do all of these Vine tricks and tips and you’ll reap the rewards of Vine in no time.
