8 Seconds to Get Their Attention
Today’s average attention span is a measly 8 seconds, so how do you capture students’ attention quickly? And combined with decreasing attention spans, in a survey of 18-24 year olds, 77% said they pick up a phone when not busy. Do they scroll? Of course they do. Every 10-20 seconds. One way to stop the scroll is by adding value — think micro-conversions at each stage of their journey — and doing it in video format will help too (95% of content is retained when watching a video)!

Students Asking Students
Because this generation of students value the voices of people their own age over “expert opinions,” we’ve launched our partnership with Unibuddy to create a space on StudyUSA.com for students to talk to each other! Students with questions can talk directly to students already studying in the U.S. One of the key benefits to you: your current students are actively recruiting your future students.
If your school already has a StudyUSA.com profile, it’s an easy process to set up ambassadors as part of your current package. And if you’re thinking of joining StudyUSA.com, get in touch to take advantage of this feature!
