DIY Videos for Audiences with Time on Their Hands

Posted by Theresa Quinn on Apr 8, 2020 3:00:00 PM

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re finding more and more audiences who have time on their hands are looking to video content for tips and tricks on how to spend that time productively.

One area where we’re seeing this trend is DIY and home improvements. A recent study estimated that 430 million DIY jobs needed attention in British homes. The study found that the typical adult had 9 home improvement tasks that they had yet to do, and that 6 in 10 had an ‘I’ll do it tomorrow’ attitude towards DIY.
