Content is clipped and adjusted to always have the action at the center of the frame no matter what social media platform it will be shared on. This approach ensures a global reach for businesses looking to amplify the impact of social media strategy.
“Businesses and brands who successfully employ social media content strategies are seeing higher returns on their investments and improving their bottom lines,” said Oren Kandel, CEO and Co-founder of Munch. “With Munch, any business, small or large, with quality content can now reach more potential customers – a revolutionary approach when it comes to social media usage for marketing teams around the world. We are grateful for our investors’ trust and are eager to use the recent funds to expand our team and market presence, further entrenching Munch’s position as a leading AI platform for social media.”
The company’s clip generation engine analyzes video content against the latest social media trends and marketing insights to maximize its viewership.

Not only does this novel approach to content production and distribution increase business ROI, but it minimizes the time-consuming process spent on tedious editing tasks and allows brands to focus on creative ideation and strategic planning while remaining relevant on social media with consistent, effortless, data-driven content.
