Use video interviews
Niche industries or industries that focus greatly on technology or other specialized skills tend to have industry experts who can educate an audience or talk about the current trends or the newest technology in the market. Video interviews can be engaging if the questions are thoughtful and useful. While conducting such interviews, always ask if it will add value to the viewer or not.
Short Infographic videos
