  • The Case for Better Content

    You're talking. Is your audience really listening?

    Grab attention quickly

    Did you know that the average human attention span is now 8 seconds long?

     

    In today's digital age, people are constantly bombarded with information—emails, Facebook, websites, banner ads, texts, tweets—all fighting for mindshare. You're probably great at ruthlessly screening out anything you don't need to see right now. So is your audience.

     

    So when someone clicks on your content, you have 8 seconds—or less!—to capture their attention before they move on.

    Distribute a clear, unified message across a diverse employee base

    We've worked in big companies, too, and we know how challenging it is to get a message out.

     

    The further a message has to travel, the clearer and simpler it has to be... or you risk launching a massive effort just to have people miss the point.

    Turn information into action

    Compliance is not an information challenge. It's a persuasion challenge. 

     

    Think about it this way: Most public companies have been providing in-depth compliance education for 5, 10, or even 15 years. If distributing information was enough, our job would be done! 

     

    At Rethink Compliance, we help clients create messages that stand out from the noise. We draw on brain science to create content that is easier to absorb and remember. And we borrow tactics from research into influence and persuasion to influence employee choices and change their behavior.

     

    In other words, we fight dirty. But we give your message a fighting chance.
