The average human attention span on social media is eight seconds. That’s shorter than a freakin’ goldfish’s. Ouch.
What does this mean for you, the influencer? The K.I.T. strategy is your best friend: Keep It Thumbstoppy. Especially during the holiday season, your fans are being overloaded with ads, social media, emails from brands, passive-aggressive text messages from their family (haha whoops did we say that out loud?)…. So getting, and KEEPING, their attention is harder than ever. We’re here to help.
Okay, first off, what’s “Thumbstoppy”? Exactly what it sounds like: Something that makes you stop thumb-scrolling through social media on your phone.
What Makes Something Thumbstoppy?
If you don’t snag viewers’ attention within the first 3 seconds, they’re done. How do you do this? Bold colors, big motions, fun music, and the element of surprise. Think about popular TikTok dance challenges – many start with leaps, jumps, and other full-body movements that catch the eye.

My favorite looks from 2019! Narrowing it down to just 10 was the hardest decision ever lol but I think these really capture the versatility of my style, and if my wardrobe only consisted of these looks I would be ok with that. Style is personal. It’s not about trends or how much money you spend but what makes you feel the most comfortable & confident. And baby in these lewks nobody could tell me nothing ok! Which one is your fav?

Make It Easy To Get
Found an uhmayzinggg deal on a popular gift? Make that the first thing you say or talk about in the caption. Give them the link to click, whether that’s a Swipe Up To Shop link, your ObsessedWith.It gift guide collections, or Text2Shop™. The fewer clicks to get from your content to having paid for the item, the better.

Hate it when videos or captions take for.ev.er to get to the point? You get the idea. This is why TikTok and Instagram Reels are popular – easily consumable, digestible content that doesn’t tax our overstimulated brains. It forces creators and advertisers to distil their messaging into the shortest, simplest, most eye/ear-catching form possible.
