CONSUMERS AND BUSINESSES ARE NOW MORE EMPOWERED AND KEENER ABOUT THEIR DESIRES AND NEEDS. CAN YOU AFFORD FOR YOUR MESSAGE WILL JUST GET LOST AMONG A THOUSAND OTHERS?
When it comes to raising brand awareness, one of the biggest challenges for businesses is breaking through. In this age of information oversupply, traditional self-extoling ads are not just considered passe’; they’re also ignored.
We’ve discovered three factors audiences worldwide are searching for; things that when employed, can catapult any brand or campaign to guaranteed results.
1. Powerful, emotion-stirring imagery
Statistics show that promo materials elicit better engagement when integrated with visuals like videos and photos. In fact, a 2010 survey by Internet Retailer reveals that consumers who view promotional videos are 85 percent more likely to take action than consumers who don’t.
The best ones though are those that don’t just use rich visuals, but also possess a strong emotional theme. Be it happiness, anger, sadness, or glory, one thing’s for sure: beautiful images that evoke emotions bear a larger impact than the average marketing ad.
2. Human experience
People respond more positively to brand campaigns that reflect day-to-day life: candid moments, real people. Authenticity tremendously effect emotions. To portray real-life experience, try starting with a story built around a single character or single message.
Whether you’re in the exotic east or in the ultra-modern western society, you’ll find it easier to influence perception if you’re culturally relatable. Diversity and social relevance are sensitive issues, and consumers tend to form a deeper connection with brands that understand those sensibilities.
