1. Halloween

2. Countdown

Countdowns are very versatile for our customers. Are they counting down to a product launch? New Year’s Eve? A birthday or other special event? Who knows! What we do know is that customers are loving the variety of different countdowns we have on offer and are hungry for more.

3. Autumn

The weather is cooling down in the northern hemisphere and the leaves on the trees are turning red. Out come the cosy scarves, chilly mornings and pumpkin spice lattes! Autumn is coming and our customers are looking for content that reflects the change in season.

Hot tip: Even across English-speaking countries, people use different names for the season. The US and other parts of North America use “fall” while countries that use British English tend to say “autumn”. To make sure your content is being displayed to all customers, make sure you tag all relevant content with both “fall” and “autumn” so that it shows up in search results.

4. VHS Effects

In news that might make you feel old: VHS effects are in fashion right now and people are loving the retro look! Customers are looking for ways to make their videos look rustic and glitchy to mimic the look of analog video tapes, and are looking on Elements for the right tools for the job.

5. Artificial Intelligence / AI

They are futuristic, high-tech, and conceptual, and they’re exactly what customers are searching for! Visual representations of artificial intelligence or AI are doing really well with Elements customers. To make sure your content is being seen by the right customers, tag your content with both “AI” and “artificial intelligence“.
