Building the Creative Strategy Your Business Absolutely Needs

Posted by StellaPop on Oct 30, 2019 8:15:00 AM

Most high-performing businesses spare no shortage of time and effort in developing a viable business strategy, and a hard-hitting brand strategy to support it. But what about a creative strategy?

Experiential Marketing: Why Your Business Should Care

Posted by StellaPop on Jun 28, 2019 8:59:52 AM

The most profound effect on our actions, impact that makes a lasting impression and sets our future selves up to perform the same action again and again, stems from emotions, not logic. Emotions operate on an altogether different playing field than cognitive thinking.

Put simply, they knock it out of the park when it comes to effectiveness in advertising and brand building. Instead of appealing to higher minds, brands are hitting people right in the guts, using ads that invoke emotion and attempt to trigger a specific response. Sound a bit like manipulation?
