Contract Job - EEVblog: Making Shorts/Reels

<< < (5/5)


--- Quote from: RoGeorge on May 01, 2024, 08:08:18 am ---If we jump from 15 minutes to 15 seconds videos, that is 60 times less.  At 30FPS, 15s means 450 frames.
If this trend continues, next jump will be to show only 7...8 snapshot pics instead of a 15 minutes video.  ;D

The format is already pretty much optimal for what it is, which IME is distraction for people bored out of their mind in some public place - sitting on a train, waiting for their medical appointment, etc. They pull out a phone, scroll through an endless stream of videos and watch whatever catches their attention.

It has to be clickbaity if you want anyone to start watching it, it has to be entertaining if you want anyone to watch more than the first second. It can't require more effort than making a watch/no-watch decision or it will be a no-watch for you. No clicking and browsing pictures, no putting on headphones, captions preferred over audio, etc.

--- Quote from: EEVblog on May 01, 2024, 12:08:17 am ---Both Big Clive and Fran have both commented that Shorts are getting more views and engagements than recent videos.

Likely the result of agressive pushing by the algorithm, not result of views by regular subscribers.

Probably, but if it's consistent then you can't blame them for continuing to chase an audience there.

Yes, it's understandable. But do they have the demographics for the audience they get through shorts? I'm curious.

A few content suggestions:

Traps for young players.

Designs for common problems.  For example a power button circuit.

Product reviews.  Products you use.  Mailbag stuff.  Trashing the scammers.

It is annoying but way more engaging. I would watch just compilations of australia-isms of dave lol imagine 1 minute with 100 We're in like Flynn
