In our audio and video categories, we’ve noticed a rise in searches for gaming intros. With a limited supply of fresh, high-quality content to meet this current demand, we see this as an opportunity for our Authors to create more content in this space. Templates that are dynamic, easy to edit and customize are appealing to our customers. We love this vibrant item featuring 3D objects by motionpictors and this Davinci Resolve Gamer channel opener by Videostones, which are perfect for any E-sport-related platform like Gaming TV intros, YouTube & Twitch intros.  When adding relevant items, consider using the following terms when tagging:

  • Gaming intro
  • Gaming opener
  • Gaming template

In our last roundup of monthly item opportunities, we identified ‘wedding content’ as a key opportunity. This month we’re seeing that demand remains high, especially for save the date video templates. We don’t anticipate that this demand will slow down anytime soon. In fact, as the world continues to open up post-covid and weddings are back on the agenda, we only expect to see an increase in demand for this content. 

Customers are seeking templates with multiple functions, such as this one, which can be used as a save-the-date invitation and a digital wedding album post-wedding, as well as templates that are mobile-friendly like this one here. When adding relevant items to Elements, consider using the following terms when tagging: When titling, describing or tagging your content.

  • Save the date
