Why You Need to Stop The Thumbs of Your Target Market

This session is ideal for digital marketers and any business looking to squeeze more leads out of their social network accounts.

With the average social network user seeing potentially thousands of posts per day, it’s more important than ever that businesses grab their attention. To do so requires “thumbstopping content”.

What is thumbstopping content?

In this talk, we’ll cover the concept, what thumbstopping content looks like and what we should expect our target market to do when their thumb stops on our social media posts. Whether we’re using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram, grabbing and holding the attention of our target market is possible. But only if we get the content right. You’ll learn some practical tips and the analogy of the “social media wheel” will give you that “ah hah!” moment.
