Overcome today’s “Attention Paradox” with our Long-Form Infographic Blog Articles.

Allow me to draw a picture of the average human living their life in the 21st century.

Actually, let’s get AI to do it:

What do you see?









Even AI recognises that we live in a world that is more distracted than ever.

With multiple devices and platforms constantly vying for your customer’s attention and an endless barrage of information at their fingertips, most long-form written content is struggling to hold readers’ interest. 

Meanwhile, Google and other search engines continue to prioritise longer-form content (especially in terms of SEO) because they recognise that it is the best way for customers to access the substantiative content – plus, it’s a great way to keep people engaged on their platform.

So arises…

The Attention Paradox.

where your customers find substantiative content less appealing than trivial content, even though they prefer substantiative content.

So, how can you keep your content:

Search Engine Optimised...

Highly informative…

And engaging…

all at the same time?

Infographic Blog Articles (like this one).

Let’s explore the intricacies of this revolutionary content format and why they’re a game-changer in the digital landscape.

The downward attention spiral.

Over the past two decades, computer scientists and psychologists at the University of California decided to study human attention spans and their findings reveal a concerning trend: 

The average time a person can concentrate on a single task is falling, fast

This decline can be largely attributed to the advent of the digital age. 

With smartphones in virtually every person’s pocket, and endless streams of consumption at our fingertips, our brains have succumbed to constant stimulation.

The average person checks their phone 58 times a day.

It’s no surprise that this constant bombardment of stimuli comes at a cost—it fragments our attention and makes it increasingly difficult to sustain focus for extended periods.

While this plays directly into the hands of social media platforms, whose algorithms rely on a high volume of short-form content pieces to keep people engaged, many business leaders are struggling to gain traction on their in-depth, high-value content.

While cultivating deep focus and concentration has become a formidable challenge for many, 

we’ve noticed that many people are beginning to become frustrated by this trend, especially since the advent of AI…

The AI problem with content today

Attention might be plummeting, but one thing that isn’t falling is your (human) audience’s demand for substance and depth.


Demand for Substance

The emergence of Large Language Models (LLMs) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) platforms like ChatGPT has reshaped the landscape of information dissemination. 

ChatGPT receives more than 10 million queries per day.

In November 2023, it hit 100 million weekly users.

While these technologies have enabled swift access to vast amounts of information and content, they have also enabled the mass production of generic and shallow content tailored to broad audience types.

Not surprisingly, this scarcity of substance is driving a growing inclination to seek out insights from qualified thought leaders. 


of buyers say opinionated, thought leadership builds credibility when the brand is not already known.


of buyers say that thought leadership builds awareness for a new or little-known brand.

Showcasing expertise and experience in their respective fields, these thought leaders offer nuanced perspectives on important topics and can provide in-depth analyses that cut through the noise to solve people’s problems. 

Whether it’s:

thought-provoking discussions,

informative web content, or

expert opinion pieces,


these individuals are increasingly becoming beacons of knowledge in a world struck down by information overload.

And so arises a paradox.

The Marketing Attention-Information Paradox

We’ve established that attention spans are falling almost 50% each decade. This means that individuals are increasingly drawn towards the easily digestible, dopamine-triggering content.

But at the same time, the AI-driven trend toward short-form, generic information is leaving many people unsatisfied and yearning for deeper insights and substantial knowledge.

So arises the information-attention paradox.

On the face of it, people are drawn to fleeting content and attention-grabbing ideas, but deep down, they desire meaningful understanding.

So what should you do?

Give your audience what they want?


Give your audience what they need?

The Solution: BOTH!!!

Long-form Infographic Blog Articles.

When it comes to creating marketing content for your ideal audience, there is a tension between the allure of fleeting content and the intrinsic human desire for meaningful understanding. 

Fleeting Content

Meaningful Depth

There is also a tension that exists on the production side of content. 

While Google and other search engines continue to prioritise long-form written content when it comes to SEO rankings, consumers are constantly distracted by shorter-form content as evidenced by the rise of platforms like TikTok.

The good news is, this tension doesn’t have to exist.

You can have your cake and eat it too! 

And that’s all thanks to a new style of blog content that optimises both substantiative and in-depth information while simultaneously appealing to your customer’s dopaminergic instincts and shortening attention – the Long-form Infographic Blog.

In fact, that’s exactly what you’re reading now, so if you’ve got this far – they work! Here’s how.

How Infographic Blog Articles Work.

The Infographic Blog article is the perfect content solution to solve the tension between fleeting attention spans and the hunger for substantive knowledge. 

These strategic content marketing pieces combine:

1. Visually appealing infographics that WOW!

2. With long-form and informative written content

to captivate audiences for a longer period, without them losing interest.

Rather than presenting dense blocks of text, Infographic Blogs strategically support information with eye-catching icons and graphics meaning they combine the best of both short and long-term content for optimal customer retention.

This deliberate design not only breaks up the monotony of traditional articles but also keeps readers focused with visual cues directing attention to key points and enhancing comprehension.

Infographic Blogs also cater to the evolving preferences of modern consumers.

As search engines continue to favour long-form written content for SEO ranking, Infographic Blogs tick that box.

But rather than more people coming across your content, only to click off after 45 seconds due to boredom, now you can hold their attention for much longer!

(Can you believe you’ve already read 1,000 words of this blog? Doesn’t feel like it right!)

This approach strikes a perfect balance between depth and brevity, giving audiences enough shiny objects to capture, and recapture their attention without compromising the quality of the content at hand.

Infographic Blogs offer a compelling solution to the information-attention paradox, transforming previously dense information into a fast-paced, engaging style of content (without actually removing any of the previous information).
