As we prepare to discontinue Jumprope and join LinkedIn we’d like to celebrate our creators, share their amazing content, and recap what has been most viewed on Jumprope.
Jumprope empowers anyone to share their knowledge and passion through engaging videos. Tens of thousands of creators (many who were previously intimidated by video!) have created high-quality videos from their kitchens, bathrooms, gyms and garages.
Top Viewed Jumpropes
The best performing content on Jumprope was (a) helpful, (b) detailed, and (c) interesting. Viewers appreciated Jumpropes containing complete instructions and a full list of what they needed to cook the recipe, make the craft project, or follow the beauty tutorial. Food was an early front-runner as our most viewed category, but we’ve also seen high engagement in travel, DIY, fitness, and beauty/fashion.
Creators That Published the Most Jumpropes
Many Jumprope creators had little to no video experience before creating on our iOS and Android apps. From new content creators to long-time professional bloggers, we consistently saw that creating video for the first time was intimidating. Allowing creators to start using Jumprope with photos, then slowly incorporate video, was key to empowering them to feel comfortable with our editing tools and ultimately publish hundreds of videos.
Our Favorite Popular Trends
Growing this platform throughout a pandemic, where many people were stuck at home, meant we saw a variety of interesting and helpful trends.
DIY Masks became a necessity for many people in 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Our creators helped to educate others with tutorials on sewing masks, no-sew options, handmade mask storage pouches and more.
National Parks were another growing trend throughout 2020 and 2021. As people sought outdoor adventures within driving distance, our creators were there to provide safe and inspiring travel suggestions.
Acroyoga combines acrobatics and yoga into one fitness practice. This type of fitness content succeeds because it’s interesting to watch, even if you aren’t attempting these moves yourself.
Dalgona Coffee, a creamy, whipped coffee drink made by combining hot water, sugar and instant coffee, was all the rage when people were sheltering in place and missing their favorite coffee shops.
Hot Cocoa Bombs were the hottest gift last holiday season. They are made with a sphere shaped mold of chocolate filled with instant hot cocoa, marshmallows and any other goodies your heart desires.
Crochet is a classic example of the always evolving ‘vintage made modern’ DIY trend. Our creators shared crochet decor, accessories, granny squares and more ahead of the crochet explosion we’ve seen in fashion throughout the summer of 2021.

All of us at Jumprope love the tool we built; not just building it, but creating our own content with it as well. In fact, when we were working in-person in the office we spent time every Friday morning creating Jumpropes! Here are some favorites some of our team members published.
