According to a recent study conducted by Insider Intelligence, social media is the first touch point for over 40% of consumers under 30. These younger generations consume hours of high-velocity, compelling content, prompting brands to compete for attention. How can you produce large volumes of creative content to target digital-first generations?
As an early adopter of digital during the dot-com bubble, Steven Moy endorses attention economics, which forces brands to capture consumers’ limited attention spans on fast-paced, content-rich platforms like TikTok. Highly targeted content captures consumers within the first second and communicates value propositions in the following three to four seconds. To reach younger generations effectively, Steven recommends hiring college students to create engaging short-form videos that resonate with audiences.
