Social Media Week LA hosted a fun Vine Workshop for Brands and Creators that was a blast, and very different from what you see at most industry conferences. Entertainment Tonight’s Bryan Moore moderated this event where top Vine network Collab gave us six Vine Off Tips.

Before breaking up into groups, Chief Creative Officer Will McFadden and Branded Content Creative Director Eamon Brennan of Collab’s digital team revealed their Top 6 Vine Tips. And it’s amazing the storytelling that can happen in a six second Vine.

6 Vine Off Tips

  1. Tell A Story
  2. Add a Twist
  3. Loop It
  4. Can you Relate?
  5. Add your Special Skills
  6. Add Cuteness

Top Vine Superstars then led the six Vine Off teams, including Ry Doon, Meghan McCarthy, The Gabbie Show and Dinky. We each had fifteen minutes to create a creative Vine using 3 out of 6 of their tips. While that might sound like a long time to create a six second video, it was actually harder than you think.

We were fortunate to be on Gabbie’s team from The Gabbie Show, and she took us through a brainstorming session, voting within the team on the idea to use, idea generation for four parts of the Vine, filming, editing and posting on Vine.

For this Vine Off, below are the six contenders, and ok, our team won (Never insult a woman), but it was very close with Dinky. Everyone loves dogs, and it was a miracle that we beat Dinky was a VIP. Check out these creative Vines, and let us know what you think in the comments.

After taking an “official” (wink) audience vote, Will McFadden recapped the tips to show how “Never Insult a Woman” Vine included a story, was relatable (Women complaining about their high heels hurting their feed), and had a twist at the end.

Will then emphasized that the Top Viners in the room had over 10 million followers, and asked everyone to Re-vine, Like and Share the “Never Insult a Woman” Vine. It was fun to see our Vine blow up, and get on the “Popular Now” page (which I did not know existed), get 260,000+ Loops (like plays on YouTube), over 4000 Likes and 50+ Comments. Big thanks to Gabbie for being the creative mastermind behind our Vine!

And cheers to SMWLA, Bryan M Moore, Collab Creators, all the Vine Superstar Leaders and everyone who made this workshop one of the best panels ever at a conference! Happy Vining!
