Let’s be honest – most of us have pretty short attention spans. Especially when we’re juggling a thousand things, it’s easy for our minds to wander. Did I add chickpeas to my grocery list? Was Dave’s appointment on the 20th or the 21st? Oh wait, what line of this report was I reading? Guess I have to start over…
Your B2B leads are struggling with the same thing. The nicest (and most effective) way to grab their attention is to feed them important information in the most compact way possible: short videos.
Videos are the ultimate match for the dwindling human attention span. They can pack a whole lot of visual and audial rhetoric into just seconds of runtime, with viewers able to digest the provided information much more quickly than if it was provided in a written article.
Think: If you need to learn how to do a quick household repair, are you more likely to leaf through a (poorly-translated) user guide, or find a YouTube video where they help you resolve the problem, step-by-step, in under 5 minutes?
Now, videos need to be relatively brief- certainly under the three minute mark. A longer video, even 5-10, is usually too intense of a commitment for busy folks. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve run through entire TEDTalk playlists on YouTube while multitasking, without hearing a word of what the speakers said.
