Our favorite pet influencer: she had blue eyes, a striking appearance, and rose to fame after becoming an internet phenomenon. As a result, her likeness was printed on every type of merch possible. She appeared on tv shows, became a household name, and quickly earned millions of dollars. When she died, she was mourned worldwide. We’re talking about Grumpy Cat.
Thanks to early adopters like Oprah, Elon Musk, and Drake, Clubhouse quite literally shot to fame in 2020. While meeting up in real life wasn’t possible, the audio app offered us a fun new way to connect online. But as we are on our way towards getting our lives back to normal, the question arises whether Clubhouse is truly the next big thing or just a pandemic pastime?
In modern life, food has transcended its purpose. Where it used to be about survival, we now hunt for gastronomic experiences and photogenic opulence. From the ooziest egg yolk to the most mouthwatering cheese pull: both eating and preparing food have become recreational activities and entertainment favorites.
Chefs are now full-on celebrities, cookbooks are a part of all of our interiors, and everyone and their mother has tried the famous TikTok feta pasta recipe – admit it. In short: the food industry is booming and with it its influencers.
If you’re looking for a sign that you should start making video content, consider this it.
Video marketing isn’t new but it is the way to stand out right now, as the marketing landscape is overcrowded and there’s a constant content overload going on. It has been proven that our attention span has evolved to be shorter than that of a goldfish, so now more than ever, content has to be truly compelling and entertaining or informative. Otherwise, it just disappears in the mountain of overload.
Logically, video content continues to grow because messages in motion are more engaging and lead to a higher retention rate. They are snack-sized, engaging, and memorable. Videos have thus become a critical and indispensable part of any marketing strategy. Plus, you can’t deny that it’s easier and more fun to watch a video than sit and read text, right?
If we haven’t already convinced you by now, allow us to persuade you why now is the time to focus on and capitalize on the power of video content.
Video content is hot, hotter, hottest. There’s no way around it: video content creators can now effectively make a living from their content, even more so, some are making millions a year. These days, ‘YouTubers’ and ‘TikTokkers’ are full-fledged professions and forces to be reckoned with.
And it’s not surprising, seeing that TikTok has 689 million monthly active users, 500 million people watch Instagram Stories daily and YouTube just crossed 2 billion monthly active users. All of the above proves that it’s all about video right now.
As influencers were the ones to spearhead this movement, allow us to explain why you should hop on the video train, too.
Your Instagram feed is the digital equivalent of a first impression, so investing some time to plan your visuals is a smart move. In fact, a well-thought-out and attractive feed can actually convert a visitor into a follower. In other words: the sooner you start, the better.
Finding the right influencer match for your brand is the first – and most important – step. But as we all know, it is a very oversaturated market that can be hard to navigate.
Want to finetune your radar? Allow us to share our knowledge, as this blog post will clearly explain how you can find the perfect match. By the last sentence, you’ll know exactly what and who to look for.
Influencer-generated content, or IGC, offers you a constant stream of high-quality authentic content for your own branded marketing channels. Almost 93% of brands already use content marketing to up their social engagement.
So it’s no wonder that brands are constantly on the lookout for new ways to repurpose content.
If the past year has taught us anything, it’s that content is everything. Forced to stay inside, all of us looked for ways to keep busy and stay entertained. A couple of lockdowns later, people are now even hungrier for new content. And it doesn’t have to be especially great or inspiring; it mainly has to distract. Why else did more than 64 million of us watch Tiger King?
We’re not saying that “distracting entertainment” should be the be-all and end-all motivation for your content (sorry, Joe Exotic); we’re just painting a picture here.
To create excellent content, every creator needs to feel inspired. And that has proven to be hard when you’re pretty much always at home. We get it.
To help you, we’ve compiled a list of tips. Grab some paper and a pen because these suggestions will tickle your fancy and get your creative juices flowing (again).
