Trends for the week of July 26 - August 1

Simple before and after sound

Sometimes we just something super simple! This sound is just that. Show a "before" clip and then an "after" clip at the ding!

Things people say

For this trend, you'll want to pair this sound to text over a video listing out "things people say" related to your industry or niche. Usually, mean or "dumb" things people might say or comment on your posts. We still want to have fun with it and make it lighthearted! I like what @oakavehouse did in her caption here. Always make it your own and use these trends to relate to your audience and give them a feel for your personality.

What you know about me

Another "on my way..." trend! We love the simple, yet fun little dance move to the beat on this one. Always relating back to your niche, maybe you're "on your way" to help or teach someone something, or buy more items from your shop... If you have a brick-and-mortar, it might be fun to do this video clip going into your storefront!

Feeling good

Ahhhh what makes you or your clients feeeeeeel gooood?? A new hairstyle? Walking through the doors of their new home? Walking into your bar for Happy Hour? A new outfit? Whatever it is, show it off and pair this sound with it!

Who's knocking?

Someone's knocking! Is it your future self with a message to your current or past self? A new opportunity knocking? Share a message or question in text over a video of you putting your ear up to a door or wall, then transition to you knocking on the other side followed by an answer or call-to-action (CTA) in text over that video clip.


Trends for the week of July 19 - 25

Got a career and I'm very invested

Many of us are small business owners and very passionate about what we do! Put this sound over you doing what you love! BTS of you working on a project or doing what you love or a transformation from the beginning of your career to now.

Cool kids

If your past self could see you now transition! Maybe you were miserable at an old job and now you're doing what you love, or as a kid maybe you dreamed about doing what you do now. Show a photo(s) or video(s) of you back then and then transition to photos or videos of you now happy and thriving!

Somebody come and look at this

Show off a product you're making or the progress of a service (phases of hair color or a remodel) to this simple sound... Something you want to show off because you're proud of your work! You can also try a voiceover while you point at the something you want to showcase.

I never needed you like I do right now

What's something you desperately need right now? A vacation? An iced coffee? A facial? Try pairing this sound with something you sell like a new latte you're launching, or your signature facial. Draw people in showing them that they need what you have to offer right now!

A hot new bombshell

For our Love Island fans, this sound should sound familiar! I love this one for a beauty or fashion transition, leveling up the look to a "bombshell" look in the second clip.
