If you registered earlier this year for Vine to integrate video content into your twitter marketing, you might have found it frustrating that there was no easy way to direct people to your profile.
But checking on their website today you will see there is now the opportunity to register for your Vine profile.
I have to admit that I rarely create Vine video content as part of my visual content marketing plan, but it is important to claim your profile to make it easy to direct people to it.
Slashgear reports that Vine is only allowing those who have both been a registered user for thirty days or more, and who have posted at least two Vines, to be among the first wave of vanity URL users and that initially those with verified Twitter accounts can register for their URL.
Checking their site today (21 December) I was able to register for my Vine profile url and am not a verified Twitter user – general registration was to be available on 23 December.
So this is how you register for your Vine profile url – firstly head over to the website for Vine to register for your profile. They also have a direct link for profiles.
You will be presented with a pre-populated identity – for mine there was a full stop between my first and last name which I amended. Take care to check your Vine profile url as you will not be able to change it.
Once you have confirmed your url for Vine you will be directed to a page that confirms your Vine profile url and a prompt to tell your friends. At the time of writing this article my Vine profile url is not yet live.
What are your plans for using video content in your marketing plan in 2013?
