Think it.

VideoSnack is a place where I post my favorite online videos. The website features amazing short videos, called "snacks", because they're easy to consume.

I decided to categorize snacks in two ways: by flavor and calories. Snacks can be inspiring, beautiful, funny or interesting. But you might be searching for snacks by length as well. The calories metric I made follows the 1 calorie = 1 second ratio.

Build it.

I built the website using Webflow in a weekend. Webflow enables me to create dynamic sites visually, and fast.

The site uses Mixpanel and Google Analytics to track user's actions throughout the website. The results so far are pretty informative and have helped me tweaked navigation.

Use it.

I post around 3 new videos every day. Build, measure, repeat.

Lessons learned:

  • For content websites, focus on user data: how do people navigate your site? Where do they usually watch? Optimize around these insights.
  • Snackable content is booming :)
