Today we are going to be attacking — and, yes, I use that word very carefully — short attention span marketing.
Topics discussed in this episode:
- Predictions for 2022 social media trends and Britney’s thoughts on them
- Short attention span marketing and how you can make it work for you
- Why entertaining content only helps your audience if it leads your audience to the ultimate goal: you
- How you can still infuse your personality into short attention span marketing

Reducing an entire message down to three soundbite clips can certainly be entertaining, but is it going to lead your audience to the ultimate goal? Maybe. And maybe not.
The dawn of the short attention span marketing does not have to be the end of marketing as you know it. It simply means you need to dive more into your personality, more into your strengths, and more into your unique message.
I am all for providing value, but I am not for providing entertainment at the expense of value.
