Staying Relevant in a Digital World Not Pushing Play

Did you know that 85% of Facebook users watch video with the sound off?

Most marketers create video and audio content assuming their audience is going to be super excited to “push play” on their video or audio content such as podcasts.

Let's get real about how people are engaging with your content. 

People are not always pushing play.

Why you ask?

Here's a few reasons…

  • They are in a location or situation where they can't (in a meeting, taking off on an airplane)
  • They don't know you or your brand and aren't sure if your content is worthy of them actually hitting play
  • They are multi-tasking and hitting play means your video or podcast is going to take them away from what they are doing
  • They are looking at their phone pretending to work. If they hit play everyone will know they are faking it ;)

You get the point. There are a ton of different reasons your dream customer may or may not be excited to push play on your content.

Is your content relevant enough to inspire your audience to push PLAY? 

The important question you must answer is not just why are they not pushing play, but how can you inspire them to push play? How can you inspire them to actually “listen” and engage with your content?

Even more important is…are you relevant enough for them to push play? WHY should they push play?
