Obviously due to the nature of Vine, this will mean editing any video down to the six second limit, but depending on the video, that could be just what you need to actually get attention. Vines are good at getting views for the fact that they're so short, so why not do some trimming and see what happens?

If you want to see some good examples of how marketers are already utilizing Vine, this article has thirty-seven of them.

Vine also added some new editing tools, so you'll now even more options for creating a compelling, short-form version of a longer video.
