Even though videos are good for viewers to observe, for developers it may not be a good subject, as it is not easy to make a video. In contrast to reading content that only needs to write the content with facts, videos need no skill but a large amount of effort to make. In conclusion, it is quite tiresome to make videos, therefore video designers and editors all have this schedule for making videos like a content schedule for influencers.

So in the end, just like everything in life, nothing is completed without putting any effort. To gain success, we all must struggle for it, even if we may fail, we should work for it.
