The limitations of the platform have not prevented businesses from creating very impactful videos on Vine. Quite the opposite, the limitations have enabled businesses to craft compelling short messages generally focused on one aspect of their business. The key is to be imaginative and fun! Nobody is seeking an in-depth analysis of anything watching a six-second Vine video: they are generally, while interested in your brand, wanting to see what’s new, fun, and happening now.
