The Role of Color in Marketing - Business 2 Community

The Role of Color in Marketing - Business 2 Community | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it
It’s more important than ever for brands to project their value. Marketers in general understand the need for consistency in color and design. But it’s also vital to move beyond the standard logo and tagline and take a holistic approach to evoking emotions among potential customers across all of your marketing channels — including social media sites. You can use color to your advantage. Color is a form of non-verbal communication and an important part of our daily lives. The underlying emotions that colors evoke have been cultivated since birth and vary depending on age, geographic location, and gender (e.g. blue for boys, pink for girls). Color affects our moods and feelings, and research suggests that it has a physical effect as well, influencing the hormones that control our emotions. Applying color theory is one of the most powerful methods of creating customer appeal. Why do you feel like clicking and browsing on some websites and not others? What makes you feel like purchasing from one online merchant vs. another? Could it be because of your emotional responses to their color palettes? Choosing the right color scheme is crucial to how your brand is viewed....

Elizabeth Anne Dale's curator insight, August 15, 2013 6:41 PM

The importance of drawing emotional responses from consumers is a widely accepted part of marketing. Emotional responses help consumer's to understand a brand, or relate to a brand, and help to build relationships between a brand and the consumer. It is interesting to think about the fact that colour is one quite simple way to create some level of emotional response, or to help enhance the level of emotional response from other aspects of a marketing communication. I think that colour as a key to emotional response is underrated, and not acknowledged as much as it should be, and I think that it is something that is often used without deliberate thought. A colour is picked because it is fitting for a product or advertisement, rather than because someone has sat down and thought about what emotional response they want, and what colour might help obtain that response.

Ksenia's comment, August 20, 2013 9:35 PM
Good read, nice choice of article Elizabeth, I have always wondered about the role of color and its impact on consumers! As being a consumer myself, I am always drawn to the color light pink - its catches my attention every time a brand is seen!Reminds me of my childhood! Just like Elizabeth mention it is an emotional response and it widely accepted as part of marketing! Color is defiantly some thing that is beyond the standard logo and tagline, color as stated in the article is used as an advantage! colors remind people of moods and feelings of an experience they may have had. Lets just say green & brown colors in my perspective reminds me of forest and earth - symbolizing nature! I would be expecting a natural or environmentally friendly product or service:) Emotional responses are important when connecting with consumers- this is one of the first steps to engaging & catching your customers attention! Some thing for marketers to think about :)
Hannah Joy Gaisford's comment, August 21, 2013 5:57 AM
Great article to choose for this topic Elizabeth. So fascinating!I have come to understand that colours do have an effect on how we react to things e.g red means love and anger pink means girly and sweet, green means fresh and new. I agree with eliabeth that it is interesting to know that colours can be a way of garnering an emotional response. I agree with Elizabeth that colour can be underated and that marketing should really consider the colour schemes they use more thoroughly and effectively. Overall some great insights elizabeth

The Impact of Customer Communities in Creating Business Value - Business 2 Community

The Impact of Customer Communities in Creating Business Value - Business 2 Community | World's Best Infographics | Scoop.it
Here's how creating customer communities can add to core value.In the past decade, establishing customer communities has moved high on the corporate agenda – for good reason. Enthralled by concepts such as client retention and customer-led marketing, businesses are investing their marketing dollars into community groups that encourage customer involvement in all product development stages – from design and service to marketing promotion and brand awareness. Setting up a digital community will do for your business what millions of dollars spent on aggressive marketing won’t – and that is lend a sense of purpose and value to customers who want to be a part of your brand, and not some random numbers in your database.Brought together on the same platform, customers will save you time and money, help with product development, strengthen brand loyalty and drive sales. And the best part is, they will thank you for it. Take a look at Get Satisfaction’s infographic to see how you can maximize customer retention with minimum marketing investment:...

The trouble is that there can be a lot of friction involved when mining the data. ...This is where dashboards come into play: a well-designed dashboard can save huge amounts of time, helping people to quickly identify the numbers that matter, in order to make insightful observations or to compile reports. Dashboard design is a tricky business. The challenge is to communicate the key numbers in a straightforward way, while allowing users to drill down into the specifics. It is about avoiding clutter, about catering for personalisation, and about the prioritisation of the right metrics. It's difficult to get right, but I think many of these examples have lots of good things going for them. I have a few ideas for web apps based around dashboards, so in part this post constitutes a kind of note to self. It is also a call for further suggestions... if you have seen other beautiful / functional / clever dashboards then do leave a comment below.

These 5 infographics offer a great introduction to the topic....Part of a good content marketing strategy, content curation is the art of finding, selecting, and sharing the best, most relevant content related to a particular theme or topic. It’s not possible (or recommended) to share your own content 100% of the time, which is where content curation comes in. Curating and sharing topical content that’s useful to your audience associates that content with your brand and creates brand affinity.Curata’s Content Marketing Pyramid nicely illustrates all the facets of content marketing and the amount of effort required for each initative. At the top of the pyramid is dense, high-value, hard-to-produce content that’s difficult to distribute, like hardcover books.

While CSR, cause marketing and sustainability might have seemed like nice-to-dos just a few years ago, articulating your brand's core values is now critical in terms of the reputational, employee productivity, and bottom line impact to your company.As Rich Fernandez, Director of Executive Development at Google, said recently at Sustainable Brands '13, If a company's product is not improving lives, it's diminishing them." In the face of rising consumer activism, Marketing 3.0 will be won by those who become purpose-driven social brands.

Facebook has only been around for 9 years, and "googling" wasn't a thing until Google launched in 1998. Even email has only been a possibility for just over 30 years. So where did it all start? Interestingly, the "Internet" started as a research tool for the U.S. military.
