Get Shorty!

Brevity can be the heart and soul of clarity, for both video and written pieces.

Here’s a thing: a 30-second TV ad lasts an aaaaage. You can grow a spare head watching a John Lewis ad at Christmastime (two minutes, twenty seconds). And TV advertisers spend a TON of money on these efforts.

May I ever-so-humbly suggest you keep your next video case study or product tour to around 30 seconds?

Please avoid four minutes of talking heads; eschew two minutes of walk-and-talk; even one minute of product pitch is too long.

Aim for 30 seconds of pure crystal, sock-it-to-them clarity. Get Shorty!
