During my time at Fanatik I focused mainly on long-form YouTube content. We also found consistent success on TikTok, Instagram reels, and YouTube shorts. 
I worked to transition their media from product based, to content based. Meaning – instead of viewers watching because they care about the product, they’re watching because they care about Fanatik. 
How do you get people to choose you in a saturated market? Form a connection with them. Them being stoked on you will transition into them being stoked to buy from you.
