Quick in, quick out

The goal of almost all media is to suck you in as quickly as possible and once you’re in to keep you in as long as possible.

Here’s another hilarious post. Oh, and don’t you wanna watch this crazy video? Here are five super useful tips to get rich quick. Wait, don’t go, your friend just commented on this post over here and you should really chime in.

It’s easy to see how that’s in the media’s best interest.

If your interest is to show more ads that is. Or to keep your audience from spending the time on someone else’s channel.

If you treat this part of your audience well that’ll not only be in their best interest but also yours.
