There are no constants in the media industry. To be successful, every publishing business must continuously iterate, optimize and evolve. While this majorly tends to be the case for technological advancements in media & publishing, communication is also a factor which needs a consideration.

In this article, we take a look at the most trending ways of publishing content which are text and videos.
The videos have become so prominent that publishers are in dilemma regarding the content format to consider, ie., video or text. But, the publishers must analyze criterias like product type, audience and viewer response goals before making a choice.
Video has been crowned as engagements’ Prince Charming, increasing audience engagement.
Statistics show that 78% of people watch online videos every week, and 55% view online videos every day and on an average 200 videos per month. By 2020, online videos will make up more than 80% of all consumer internet traffic.
Publishers are crazy for video content but consumers/readers are crazier.
A study by Usurv shows that 26% of viewers would share a text article and 46% would ‘like’ a text article.
