#Results: Hot Tech

If money was no object as it pertains to consumer tech, many American adults indicated that they would upgrade their phones and improve their home security, as per a survey by eMarketer. However, our readers replied to our poll and said that they are more interested in wearable tech and connected exercise equipment – seems like they’re a health-conscience bunch.

Video Storytelling

According to 83% of marketers surveyed by Content Marketing Institute, video has become an even more important storytelling tool in the last two years. Here are a few other marketer insights from their report:

  • 60% of those surveyed expect their video budget to increase in 2022 over 2021.
  • 69% say their organization needs to invest more in the format, showing they believe in the power of video.
  • 48% say their brand doesn’t use existing video to its potential.
  • Almost half (49%) say interviews with influencers/subject matter experts produced the best video results.

#FGFStory: Bouncy Castle Cleans the Air and Gobbles CO2 While You Jump

A bouncy castle on display at COP26 in Glasgow can clean air by removing carbon dioxide and other pollution. It works thanks to algae inside the playground’s inflatable walls.

To demonstrate, children from a local primary school played on the bouncy castle. As the children jump, air is sucked into the walls of the playground where the algae inside absorbs carbon, releasing oxygen in its place.

Check out the video.

  • Repurpose the content for other uses (social, blogs, eblasts, infographics, etc.)
  • Evaluate by paying attention to analytics
