Dear Marketer,

A commercial on TV shows a child dip into a container to pull out a sweet treat, while the mother cooks in the background and keeps a watchful eye on the child. A wave of nostalgia washes over you. A flurry of good memories floods your mind and before you know it, you have subconsciously connected with the brand in the advertisement. More than likely, when you are in the store the next time, you will reach for this brand that evokes all the warm and fuzzy feelings. Welcome to the world of emotional marketing!

Emotional marketing is the ability to connect with your target audience in a powerful way, using techniques that evoke strong emotions. Studies show that people rely on their emotions - more than on information - to make their purchase decisions. This means it is not enough to highlight the features of your product or service. You must create an experience that appeals to your customers’ emotions.

Whether you are a Fortune 500 company or a newly founded startup, your best bet to standing out in the clutter is to build an emotional connect with your consumers. This week’s newsletter is therefore geared towards understanding the nuances of emotional’ marketing to help you increase brand awareness and drive sales.

#Emotionmarketing: If you don’t want to be a boring or forgettable brand, here’s what you need to do: Help your customers ‘feel’ it.

We are not just talking about positive sentiments. Even negative feelings like fear and anger can drive a purchase decision. Here is how you can leverage emotions in your marketing messaging to create long-lasting connections with your customers.
