Why Reels, TikToks, and Stories Dominate

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

In recent years, there's been a shift in the way that businesses and individuals use video to market themselves online. Long-form, horizontally shot videos are becoming less popular, as platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook prioritize shorter, vertically shot videos in their algorithms.

This shift towards shorter videos has been driven, in part, by the rise of "reels," "TikToks," and "stories." These formats allow users to quickly and easily create and share short-form video content, often in a fun and creative way.

One reason for the popularity of reels, TikToks, and stories is that they're easy to consume.

In today's busy world, people don't have the time or attention span to sit down and watch a long-form video. Shorter videos, on the other hand, can be watched in just a few seconds and are more likely to hold someone's attention.

Another reason for the rise of these formats is that they allow businesses and individuals to showcase their personality and creativity. Reels, TikToks, and stories are often used to share behind-the-scenes glimpses, funny moments, or unique perspectives. This type of content can be especially appealing to younger audiences and can help businesses stand out in a crowded online space.

But it's not just about the format – it's also about the content. These short-form video formats are perfect for sharing quick, engaging snippets of information. Whether it's a tutorial, a promotional video, or a creative ad, you can easily capture someone's attention and convey your message in a matter of seconds.

Another benefit of reels, TikToks, and stories is that they're more interactive and engaging.

These formats often encourage users to comment, share, and participate in challenges, which can help to build a community around a brand or individual. This level of engagement can be valuable for businesses looking to build relationships with their customers and followers.

In conclusion, reels, TikToks, and stories have taken over video marketing because they're easy to consume, allow for creativity and personality, are perfect for sharing quick snippets of information, and are interactive and engaging. If you're looking to market your business or personal brand in the digital world, it's worth considering incorporating these formats into your strategy.
