Tony Quin, CEO of IQ Interactive writes Another Type of Climate Change in the latest issue of OMMA Magazine (free reg). Tony makes six points about digital competition, here's one of those...

"Don't presume attention. Time is the consumer's most valuable resource. So if you want it, you have to earn it. Consumer attention is very hard to attract and fleeting, and you earn it by delivering relevance. Even though the depth and breadth of a Web experience, unlike traditional channels is unlimited, you must engage the consumer in short increments, with each step getting more personally valuable to them."

Excellent point. Bravos, Tony.
