The Hot Shots: Our top 3 video stories from the last week

By Sam Valorose | Oct 22, 2018


Every day, the Wibbitz editorial team works around the clock to create Top Story videos that cover breaking news, trending entertainment stories, sports and lifestyle pieces. These Top Stories are available to customers to rebrand – meaning that, in one click, these videos will adhere to their branding requirements and feature their own custom fonts, transitions, and logos. After rebranding a Top Story video, users can then edit the story’s media, text, soundtrack and more to meet their own editorial voice and style.

We always pay close attention to the Top Story videos that get the most rebrands from our customers. These insights help us understand what kinds of stories that our publishing partners’ audiences care most about, and what we should be focusing on in the following week. We’ve come to realize that these insights are just too valuable to keep to ourselves – so in this post, we’ll reveal the best performing Top Stories from each week. Make sure to tune in every Monday to learn what the world’s leading storytellers are covering!
