Brands, It's Time To Get Moving: Why Action-Oriented Marketing Is The Way Forward

Brands, It's Time To Get Moving: Why Action-Oriented Marketing Is The Way Forward | IMC STUDY 2 |

In the latest in his series on neuroscience and marketing, Douglas Van Praet argues that humans are driven by movement and memory, and the best brands think beyond grabbing eyeballs and focus on creating experiences.


Despite our continued homage to the almighty 30-second spot and the much heralded promise of the virtual and digital realm, as Marvin Gaye sang in his 1968 hit “Ain’t nothing like the real thing.”


The greatest irony in advertising is that despite continued heavy media investments, branding doesn’t simply occur by staring at the TV or surfing the web. It happens best in the tangible interactions of authentic human experiences.

Cen Xun's insight:

This article is talk about the brands expand, it is not only through media, such as TV and Facebook, it also expand through human daily experience. People involve more physical action to feel a new thing that just viewing it, and it can bring deep impression of the products in customer’s brain. And behavior change often precedes changes in attitudes and feelings.


So to create an effective branding this article gave use a 7-steps process:

1)    Interrupt the Pattern 
2) Create Comfort 
3) Lead the Imagination 
4) Shift the Feeling
5) Satisfy the Critical Mind 
6) Change the Associations 
7) Take Action

And it give us a good example about Redbull, they ignore to use traditional TV advertisement  to expand their brands, but give a free case to the college student which to join a party, and they do not told them how good this drink, just ask them feel it, and they also sponsor some extreme sports, which clearly to told the customer the spirits of our branding. Those action bring a deep impression of Redbull is a good energy drink to every people, and it becomes the most famous energy drink brand in the world.

I agree with the article. Brand does not easily occur by seeing from the TV or anywhere. Despite companies continue a huge media investment but customer will best trust in the tangible interactions of authentic human experiences.
Wenzi Liu's comment, September 26, 2013 6:59 AM
I agree with the point of this article. Tangible human experience is important for branding. Customers retention happens when consumers have positve experience with the brand.
