Soon, the mobile ad industry will face one of the realities of maturity: integrating with the rest of the digital advertising world. One of the drivers leading
Ulrich Weihler's insight:
Companies like Drawbridge, have built massive databases of user devices that allow advertisers to reach the same user as they move from their laptop to smartphone to tablet.
94 percent of sales occured offline in 2014. Two types of signals used to measure the lift from a campaign. 1. Actual purchases. Companies like Datalogix access to point of sale data which they can link back to a user cookie. 2, Location-based attribution. Showing an ad to a user on desktop or mobile and then seeing if the user, along with his or her mobile device, walked into a store. Only for short consideration cycles.
Emotions included trust, bonding (“It‟s my brand”), resonance (“This fits my self image”), companionship (“This brand is like a companion to me”) and love – in which a deep affection was felt and the consumer would be really upset if they couldn’t buy their favourite brand.
Emotional branding is widely used globally, including McDonald’s long-running ‘I’m loving it’ campaign and Kodak’s attempts to link its brand to nostalgia. But its effectiveness has been unknown until now, Dr Steve Bellman, deputy director of Audience Labs claims.
“Our study shows that when companies tap into consumer’s deeper feelings, the payoffs can be substantial,” he said. “Emotionally attached consumers purchase substantially more than regular customers, which frees companies from having to rely on promotions and discounts to keep them buying the brand.”
The digital marketing world was all abuzz when Forrester Research made the bold statement that web content management was now part of a larger category they dubbed Customer Experience Management (CXM).
Brands are forever seeking more effective methods to build closer connections with the consumer, boost recognition, build loyalty and sway the purchase decision journey. Marketers have made staggering advances in their ability to analyse and understand what influences consumers, whether this be employing eye-tracking technology or using sophisticated data analytics to monitor real time consumer preferences. Yet, unexpectedly, it is neuroscience that has emerged as one of the biggest breakthroughs in marketing in decades.
We are in the midst of a “Visual Thinking Revolution” and leaders in all types of organizations are embracing visual thinking as a literacy of the future.
It seems visual thinking and visual storytelling is a top theme this week in the articles that come my way!
If visual thinking is the next revolution, then anyone building their biz storytelling skills are smack-dab in the middle of it.
Why? Because those who can tell a compelling story are already visual thinkers. We are masters at distilling complex thoughts down to images that convey meaning. Yahoo!
The job of the storyteller is to feed images to listeners. You need to be able to think visually in order to do this. And building visual thinking skills is part-and-parcel of becoming a compelling storyteller.
This article give 10 external forces that are fueling the visual thinking revolution. See how your business is doing, or where you fit in with these trends.
You’re walking home alone on a quiet street. You hear footsteps approaching quickly from behind. It’s nighttime. Your senses scramble to help your brain figure out what to do. You listen for signs of threat or glance backward.
[Hmmm, storytelling and exploitation in the same article. Have they been talking with Christian Salmon?]
Lastly, we are wired for storytelling. Researchers asked subjects to look at an animated drawing of a box that had one circle and two triangles floating out of it. They were asked to explain what they saw. Only a single respondent replied that they saw floating shapes. Every other respondent told a story complete with metaphors, characters, plotlines. Evolutionary psychologists explain that we need stories because that is how we define people and also how we define ourselves. The Wall Street Journal is acclaimed for one of the most powerful direct response ads in ad history.
From The Original Article: "Facebook has regained domination for traffic driving over StumbleUpon, in fact, StumbleUpon seems to have dropped off quite dramatically this past year, but despite that fact, it still comes in as the number two traffic driver in social media well ahead of Twitter and edging out both Youtube and Pinterest.
With the tremendous buzz that Pinterest has been generating over the past few months and the fact that it was recently recognized that Pinterest drives up to 4x as much retail buying traffic as Facebook, the fact that StumbleUpon still drives more traffic than Pinterest is a big deal.
Then you look to YouTube, arguably the world's largest search engine, and it comes inbelow StumbleUpon as well, but just a hair ahead of Pinterest for the third place spot in real traffic driving among the major social media".
