For the last few weeks, I have been putting 4k tours that are about 3-4h long in the background while I do my work. They are calming, sometimes informative and most of all they look cool. I remember not so long ago I did not see that many such videos, especially not professionally produced.
I see that there are even companies doing it now, with selling monthly subscriptions and creating apps that cater to this “new trend”. Check this out: NatureRelaxation.com. It costs $79.99 for a year of this service. Would you pay such a price or are the freely available videos good enough for you? Just install an adblocker, right? That is one of their selling points – no ads.
I think one of the reasons these are becoming so popular is that people are sitting home, not able to travel and this is kind of the closest thing you can get. Additionally, drones, 4k cameras have become more accessible and the price is very affordable. It could be just a one-time thing, I would love to see some data on this. If you do have any please drop them in the comments and I will add them to this article if it is relevant and informative.
I would really like to hear your thoughts about this. Do you think it is still worth jumping into that business or is it too late? What would you like to see in such videos? Is there anything missing?
Not to mention the fact that people will start to travel soon and such videos might become unpopular.
Here is my favourite one so far:
