How to Create Great Content Fast
For YouTube you want longer-form content to get your watch hours up but actually, most people prefer to consume short-form video. Think of Instagram reels and Tik Tok. People love quick consumption. This is why my PR Tips are generally under 2 minutes. I want people to watch them, consume them, and take action and when they are short and sweet, that happens.
Short videos also allow people to quickly get to know you and get a quick taste of your personality since they are more likely to hit play on a shorter video than a longer one. Finally, solve a problem in your videos. What issues does your ideal consumer have and how can you fix it? When they understand and feel what you are saying and you can provide a solution, that will resonate with them.
