@AdamMore, Reaction

Why this works: This creator reacts to a Short that immediately spoke to him on his feed. By reflecting from his experience, he joins into the conversation with his own authentic opinion and invites his audience to respond.

Tip: React to other creators’ hot takes, jokes, mishaps or creative experiments. Add your own sense of humor or perspective to the feed! Revealing your true thoughts and opinions, whether genuine or ridiculous, will invite commentary and more reactions from your audience. Reaction videos are their own popular content category on YouTube, and Cut makes it easy to get in on the fun.

@AvaleneR, Let me explain

Why this works: YouTube is a great place to learn from experts all over the world! This creator shares which dental tips and tricks are worth following from other YouTubers with her audience in a bite sized format.

@AlegraChetti444, Do It Yourself

Why this works: This creator takes a clip from a viral “I’m cold makeup” trend and makes it her own. She adds her own flair by showing off how she got the look and teaching her viewers how to join in too.
