How do I create video memes?
Ever since the first Lolcat appeared on our computers with the question, “Mona me cheezburger?” (I can have cheezburger?), we’ve become obsessed with memes. They are perhaps the most responsive medium on the Internet, reflecting public attitudes toward important world events, from the U.S. election to the birth of baby Yoda. They also have an incredibly broad reach that includes a large number of generations of writers and viewers. This year, for example, 74-year-old Dolly Parton launched her own viral meme.
Thus, they are a success on the Internet and reach a wide audience. This makes memes a great (and fun!) marketing tool for your business. In this publication, we’ll show you how to make video memes in Clipchamp Create. We’ll also share links to our meme templates if you want to save time. Forget the confusion with online meme generators and follow our simple guide.
What are memes?
In its simplest form, a meme is an image or video with text superimposed on top. But it’s actually much more than just images and text. Memes have the unique ability to capitalize on iconic moments in culture and create viral content, be it politics, movies or just a grumpy cat. In essence, memes are associated with instant recognizability, and it is this defining characteristic that allows them to be quickly adapted and spread across the Internet.
Visually, memes have grown and become very diverse. Nevertheless, the classic look of memes never gets old – clear large font, thick upper and lower borders and some deliberate spelling errors added in moderation.
How can meme marketing work for your business?
Social media has overtaken most traditional forms of advertising, and with the right strategy, advertising on it can target thousands of users every day. Unfortunately, just because an ad will be seen doesn’t mean users will be interested in it. According to Forbes, users are becoming increasingly averse to ads, especially when it comes to their social media feeds. That means you need content that really engages users – that’s where memes come in.
The average millennial views 20 to 30 memes a day, and examples show that memes can have up to ten times the reach of traditional ads. With that in mind, there’s one easy way to start using memes to promote your business.
