SHARING YOUR VIMEO OTT PROJECT IN A FACEBOOK Status Update
When you post a Vimeo OTT link on Facebook, it will pull in the Product artwork and description and link out to the page. It might take a minute for the product image to appear, but once the shared content is posted, the product artwork should appear.
We do not currently play trailers on Facebook as we found it does not help conversion. People may watch your trailer, but they will rarely buy it. If they click on the link and go out to your site, they are more likely to convert.
ADDING YOUR VIMEO OTT LINK TO YOUR FACEBOOK PAGE
Don’t waste an opportunity to promote your Vimeo OTT site! We highly recommend adding a link in the About section so that users always know how to find your Vimeo OTT project.
