The year 2020 forced marketers to find innovative ways to manage content marketing. Limited resources for businesses forced them to become creative with their content. For this reason, global companies more than ever started repurposing content.

Brands increase their visibility by creating a strong presence on social media platforms. Your content would need to cater to each of the platforms in a unique manner.

Often, the same piece of content will have high engagement on one platform. It could be very low on the other. This occurs because the brand’s target audience may not be present on these platforms.

As a marketer, you must understand how to create versatility in content. You must communicate a singular message across platforms. Twitter, for example, is an online platform for users to express their opinions.

They can do so only within a limited number of characters. Instagram is a visual online platform where users share content in the form of images and videos. A brand needs to navigate its content to match these requirements.

Most industries are switching from static posts to mobile-optimized visuals. Instagram stories started the trend to view an image or video on the entire screen of your mobile. Soon after, YouTube started video shorts, where a similar format followed. The latest addition, gaining popularity is Google Web Stories.

What are Google Web Stories?

Google Web Stories are a set of tappable images or videos made to view on the mobile. They can appear on Google Search, Google Discover and Google Images.
