We are in the age of which it is important to create easily digestible content. Our attention spans are waning, as is our patience. So it is important that not only are we producing and sharing content that is extremely relevant to our clients and potentials clients, but also that the content we are producing is captivating. So you have to ask yourself what type of content requires less work and fatigue on the prospective client? The answer is video. This is considering that you are not sharing a 30- minute video that is dragging on until it gets to the point.
