How to use positive creativity to engage audience …

How many images a day do you think your exhausted brain sees?

100? 1000? 1000 000?

Estimates range from 4000 ads to a million images upwards. Snapchat users shared 8,796 photos every second whilst in Facebook 250 million photos per day are uploaded. That’s a lot of advertising and spinning cats. How can our poor minds take all this in?

The brain analyses an image 73 times faster than the written word, which means that if your visual content doesn’t engage your reader it is possible they will not stop to read your written content. The problem is no longer just getting audience to read your marketing, it is getting them to notice your content amongst all the other content/marketing that they are engaging with at the same time.

How are you going to get your content (and by that I mean any marketing – printed, verbal or social) to actually be read, seen, heard or actioned upon?

Your marketing content needs to be educational whilst also being engaging, on trend and relevant and visually satisfying.

Have you got time to do all that? Create a campaign to advertise your business, work out who you want it to reach, schedule it, measure the results, work out what to say next?
