Whether it’s a white paper, executive briefing or explainer video, there’s a limit to how much content the audience will consume.
In response, we’ve a collective desire to reduce the messages to the minimum of what’s required.
But sometimes the desire to keep the white paper to 4 pages, video to 2 mins or blog to X-hundred words just doesn’t work. Messages get over-clipped and new notions are strangled by restrictive word counts. If it doesn’t fit, don’t squeeze it in.

The challenges represented by ‘Content shoehorn!’ relate to:
- Content marketers and their associate writers and agencies charged with production
- Product marketers who may be under pressure to over-expand agendas and messages
- Marketing leaders who recognise the value of balancing crisp, shorter-form content with realistic word counts to deliver the messages effectively.
