Ultra-Skimmable Takeaways From DOYO Live 2017

Posted on Posted in Marketing, News, Social Media

One of the key messages from DOYO Live’s keynote speaker was that today’s business professional has an attention span comparable to a goldfish.

We know that sounds bad, but it’s just an adaptation to the overwhelming amount of information we’re given every day. Today’s digital marketer has to cut the fluff and get to the point!

So with that in mind, here’s a super-scannable look at our favorite people and presentations from DOYO Live 2017:
