Installing the VideoPeel Carousel Player

What is a Carousel Video

A carousel video is simply a creative form of advertising. You may recognize a video carousel when you see a slideshow of pictures, videos, headlines, taglines, call to action, or links rotating on a website or advertisement. This form of advertising allows multiple pictures and videos to be shown in one single ad. These are particularly useful on Facebook and Instagram as they have shown high success rates. Facebook describes carousel videos as a “richer storytelling experience”. For a carousel video it is important to share important messages, use high quality photos or videos, and keep everything intriguing.

Benefits of Carousel Videos

The benefits of using a carousel video are that it gives viewers the chance to see multiple messages in one place. If you are having trouble choosing one picture, video, or message to share to your audience, try using a video carousel. Carousel videos are more likely to receive more engagement simply because there is more content to take in, therefore the viewers spend more time watching the ad and potentially interacting with it. Social media presence is extremely important in today's world which is why carousel videos are so effective. 

Advertising using carousel videos is a great way to invite customers to get to know your brand, core message, and business purpose. This style of advertising performs well over other forms of advertising because of the outstanding relationship it builds between the brand and the customer.
