Serial Written Updates
With the rise and rise of on-demand video streaming services, viewers of all age-groups are glued to their screens – smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and computers. Regular television shows (priority TV, real-time shows, and catchup TV), reality TV, movies, news, documentaries, specials, biographies, originals, and more, the consumer has never had more choices.
Little surprise then, that content consumption metrics are off the charts. Yet, experts reckon, we are just getting started! As per BARC, Indians watch approximately 3 hours and 44 minutes of television content each day. Yet, it is small, compared to the average American household that watches 8 hours and 55 minutes of TV per day!
Apart from the quality, variety, and tech around content delivery (arguably the most important USPs), what keeps the audience glued, keeps them coming back, gets them talking, tweeting, conversing, and sharing is the availability of associated content.
Access to serial written episode updates show related news, previews, featured stories, serial gossips, reviews, and the entire social buzz is what keeps the audience glued.
What Are Serial Written Updates
Serial written updates or episode updates are engaging write-ups covering the key happenings and developments in an episode. It starts with an engaging and meaningful headline (which usually carries the episode number and the broadcast date) and covers the broad storylines, themes, and key plot twists in the episode.
A well-crafted serial written update also carries interesting banner images, screenshots, offer hyperlinks, or embeds videos, tweets, and highlights quotes and key dialogues – all of which further enhances engagement and adds to the recall value.
The tone of voice while writing a serial update is fast-paced and devoid of subtle nuances and descriptions. In fact, a serial written update is a crisp scene by scene description and can be considered as a written alternative to hearing a friend describe “what happened in that episode”– to keep you abreast.
