Which part of the brain are you marketing to?
The proliferation of smartphones and tablets has had a profound change on the way people consume content.
There is a near infinite amount of content, but only a finite amount of time to consume it all.
As a result, even the highest-performing mobile ads have click through rates of 1-5%.
Meaning those ads fail to convert the other 95-99%, which could amount to millions of unconverted impressions over the course of a campaign.
Understanding the value of the impression can help advertisers build their brand
For that we turn to Neuroscience. Neuroscientists believe our subconscious is the motivating force behind many of our actions, including which brands we buy from.
The modern internet is all feeds, especially on Mobile and we’re having to read more than ever before.
We read status messages on FB, Tweets, messages, instagram comments all day, every day. Therefore, people spend more time browsing online than engaging with content.
Neuroscience reveals that people see banner ads, but they truly read native ads.
Native advertising is NOT just about placement, it’s about being native to user expectations and experience of seeking relevant content through reading.
NATIVE ADS TAP INTO MORE BRAIN, DELIVER MORE FOCUS, MORE TIME, MORE MEANING, MORE SUBCONSCIOUS IMPACT, MORE CONSCIOUS IMPACT
Native ads are effective because they require the use of the entire brain.
Unlike banner ads, native ads require the use of both hemispheres of the brain. This results in great engagement, retention, and action.
|Left Brain||Right Brain|
|Text processing||Image processing|
|Single task focused||Multi-tasked focused|
The act of reading a native ad triggers neural pathways in the brain and unravels a tapestry of associations in the mind.
Reading a native ad is able to neurologically change the brain by creating associations.
Triggering subconscious associations is able to influence message perception.
People are biologically wired to make split second subconscious, snap judgments about the world → the same few seconds it takes to read a native ad.
The impression is the point of influence - make a good impression.
A few seconds with a meaningful thumbnail & headline can help inform our long-term beliefs, help us jump to conclusions and make important associations with a brand.
Meaning those 99% of people who don't convert (or millions of unconverted impressions over the course of a campaign) are likely to have the same snap judgement as those who do and would result in a similar outlook towards the brand long term.
Neuroscience reveals that optimizing the ad can increase a person’s interest in the message on a subconscious level and increase the value of the impression.
Optimize Native Ad components to trigger memory, emotion and empathy.
