How do People Read News Now? They Scan Headlines and Sub-Heads.
“Marketers have 3 seconds and 6-to-8 words to capture their prospects’ attention with a benefit,” states Squires. “People scan headlines and sub-heads now. They also want to learn at least one new idea for time invested.”
Does Mobile Propel the Micro + Visual Trend in Technology Marketing?
“Scanning for news is driven by 3 trends: rise of mobile to access news; algorithms like Summly, which lets you browse news fast and beautifully (think Yahoo News on your mobile); and peoples’ desire to be entertained with a visual,” said Squires.
What Does the Upward Trend in Blogs and Newsletters Suggest?
“Blogs and newsletters are on the rise and no wonder; they are a natural result of the Micro + Visual trend.” Squires said, “Softscribe’s format for blogs is 300 words, 3 visuals, and 3 paragraphs – each themed with a consistent category month-to-month (personal anecdote, customer news, product news), per blog post.”
