The same pattern is happening on Humix, where short lists on nearly every topic (like this video listing out the best sites to learn English) are gaining significant amounts of views.
14. Pop Culture Discussion
The most popular content creators are usually the ones that can make a home in a massively popular space, where discourse and conversation happen naturally every day.

These kinds of videos lend themselves extremely well to publishers who are just starting out creating video content.

This simple, homemade video breaking down some popular family recipes continues to perform well on Humix.
19. Relationship Advice

One of the more interesting insights we at Ezoic are noticing about Humix is that shorter videos (~5 minutes) tend to perform very well. A lot of top-performing videos are commonly simple instructional guides with basic voiceovers and graphics to show a point (all of which can be done with a literal push of a button using the brand new article-to-video tool Flickify!).
You don’t need to build a massive following to get views on Humix, nor do you need to be great on-camera and speak well in public. Actually, you don’t need any of these traits for your videos to perform well on Humix.
If you’re ready to tap into video content revenue, we strongly encourage you to pair Humix with Flickify, turning your text articles into high-quality videos on Flickify, then uploading them onto Humix.
We hope this helps. Good luck creating great videos!
