Marketing for Attention in a World of Instant Gratification
The world today is completely different than the one most of us grew up in. Anyone who caught up in the hype around Back to The Future’s 30th anniversary in 2015 got a great reminder of what things were like 30 years ago. Our behavior has shifted over the last three decades due in part to the rise of technology.
The rise of computers, the internet, and mobile devices has had an effect on how we interact as we’ve gained widespread access to information. Our new access made it easier to communicate and gain information, therefore changing our behavior. Gone were the days of the Industrial Age where advertisers simply needed to run TV commercials to sell millions of products and in came
the Information Age.
