If you got lost by the word phygital, we recommend you to read the first to articles of this series where we presented the phygital marketing revolution (Chapter 1) and what you should pick between an brick and mortar store or an ecommerce (Chapter 2).

What is Emotional Marketing?

So, marketing has evolved a lot through the years. Nowadays, because of the hyper competitiveness of every markets, we need to do more than just answering a need.
To complement that need-answer vision, emotional marketing has been developed. We could define it as a practice of marketing and advertising that focuses on transmitting a basic emotion to make sure the audience notice, remember, share your communication and then buy your products.
It comes from a very basic statement: every purchase is made based on emotion.
Just think about the last thing you bought something, did you do it out a well though-out act or was it impulsive? Of course, you might say that before the actual act of purchase you reasoned yourself with a comparison study of prices and products but once you got in front of the product, it’s your heart that made the final decision, not your brain.
You got influenced by emotional marketing.
Studies shown that advertisings basing their arguments and visuals on emotions had twice as much success than regular advertising.

How does emotional marketing work ?

First impression matter and first impression is based on emotions.
As we said before, purchase decision is based on emotion rather than reason, so by using emotional marketing you influence their final decision. It inspires people to act while receiving the correct message and following the road map your built for them
We can generally group all emotions in eight primary emotions: anger, anticipation, joy, trust, fear, surprise, sadness and disgust:
This is the wheel of emotion, created by Robert Plutchik in 1980. It shows the most basic emotions (in primary color) and their declination. Its disposition in rose window also shows you the opposite of each emotions, as pensiveness is the contrary of serenity or joy is the contrary of sadness, etc.
It’s a great tool to use if you want to have a more global vision of the emotions your marketing and communication campaign can focus on while having a brief extract of the reaction each emotions generate.
For instance:
Happiness makes people share your campaign, generating leads and increasing the brand awareness. Bad news sell, good news travel. Our brain is copycat, when we see someone happy, we mirror him while sharing our good mood to the world.
Sadness makes us empathize and connect. It rises the will to give and leads to altruism
Surprises makes us hold on to what feels comfortable (your brand) rising brand loyalty
Fear is a tricky one, because if not well done it can be disastrous. Otherwise, your brand will be seen as the only bright spot in a dark world and make the consumer lean on you when things turn bad.
Anger & Passion drive people stubborn, virilizing your content, increasing your followers loyalty and the shares of your content on social medias.
