Whitepaper: The Rise of Attention Planning in Media

Attention is at an all-time premium, it’s no longer enough to simply capture attention, you’ve got to work to keep it too. If you succeed, you have the opportunity to increase ad recall by almost 80%. But if you fail, ads will soon be forgotten and campaign effectiveness will drop.

Sounds like a quick win, but it isn’t always straightforward as marketing and advertising content has never been so saturated. Audiences are consuming more than 7 hours of screen time each day, and their attention is taking the hit. Today, the average adult attention span lasts only 8.25 seconds.
