Why digital marketing must resonate with emotions

Whenever we sit at our laptops to create copy for a piece of content, a social post, or an email, we tend to see the audience as a person with a very specific problem. Due to this thought process, we speak directly to the problem they are trying to solve but don’t take into consideration the emotions that may set off as a result of the problem. As a result our copy often comes off as cold, unattached, and merely technical. 

Regardless of your industry, there is a human being at the receiving end of your message. This session takes a look at:

  • Ways to understanding the psyche of your target audience

  • Guidelines on mapping out the emotional attributes of your message

  • How to deliver a marketing message from one human to another
