Here are some strategies that can help combat the shortened attention span:

Create Engaging Visuals
Making your visuals stand out in the overwhelming amount of content on social media platforms can effortlessly draw the eye and entice the audience to explore your content further.

While sharing videos has the unparalleled ability to captivate and entertain your audience, making video an invaluable tool when it comes to boosting reach and engagement.
