Don't get me wrong video is nice... but with every Internet Marketer telling everyone to create videos and mp3's you have people that create unnecessary long ones. I mean the height of being ridiculous is when I listened to a video of Dan Kennedy (I think >< ) and for the first 35 minutes of the mp3 he talked about himself etc. The mp3 was 95 minutes long. Now tell me that isn't just plain stupidity. He was boring me to death actually. The initial few minutes were like...okay, this is how you started way back then in marketing. But he goes on and on. He also "Uhms" and "Ahs" a lot and goes off into directions that has no consistent flow. He would start talking about what happened when he was a kid in school, then mid sentence he would refer to the fact that he has to talk about :"How to create a $100,000 in 90 days" at this seminar. It was really frustrating.
Personally nowadays I download the mp3's and videos, but unless they are less than 15 minutes long, I do not bother. It's a waste of my time. Therefore I have tons of material on my hard drive that I have never listened to.
I prefer to read the pdf's. At least it's easier going through a 90 page pdf then to listen to stuff that has no meaning or frustratingly sit through long mp3's.
Does anyone else get annoyed with long videos and mp3's or do you enjoy watching lots of videos/listen to long mp3's?
What would you think is acceptable in terms of time for a video and mp3's?
Example some people (like me) can watch videos for 15 minutes, and mp's ...well I prefer them to be less than 10 minutes in length actually. A 6 minute mp3 would be ideal for me.
