Sample Print Advertising Pro Trends

Each Print Advertising PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online print advertising articles, videos and images. Examples:

Marketing Whimsicality Consumers respond to brands that bring fantasy to life Implications - Today's hyper-digital world has made advertising feel like a constant bombardment; as a result, many brands have adopted a humorous, self-aware approach to marketing. However, consumers still want to be surprised and delighted. Brands that use their influence to enchant audiences by turning fantasy into reality are able to engage consumers with collective feelings of wonderment. This approach disassociates advertising from the act of "selling," and instead positions brands as benevolent superpowers.

Infant Advertising 2.0 Babies star in narrative TV ads that emotionally connect brand and consumer Implications - Emotionally engaging television commercials starring newborn babies are an efficient way for brands to market themselves as essential catalysts in the important moments of an individual consumer's life. Targeted at parents and grandparents, this strategy seeks to align the use of a particular product or service with the crucial early stages of development. Given the eagerness of the modern parent to provide the best care, brands are able to position themselves alongside a young parent's new set of priorities.

Analog Awareness Brands get noticed with emotive, tech-free campaigns focused on values Implications - Given the high mobile usage rates among Hispanic demographics, brands are starting to appeal to what has seemingly been left behind with emotion-driven analog campaigns in the physical world. Relying on the rule of value and scarcity, such seemingly counter-intuitive campaigns use the juxtaposition of tech-free publicity stunts in an increasingly digital era to engage consumers.

Influencer Entrepreneur Social influencers turn to online platforms for guidance and growth Implications - The rise of social media has resulted in the social media celebrity. Though there are now talent agencies that solely represent famous YouTubers and bloggers, there are also smaller platforms designed to help users learn how to grow and manage their influence. The realization that people have the potential to co-create, rather than simply consume media, has caused a pragmatic shift in the way they use social networks.

Cognitive Marketing Brands take a psychological approach to marketing Implications - In addition to behavioral marketing, which uses consumers' online preferences to curate advertising content, brands are also adopting psychological tactics as a means of emotionally connecting. Whether it's taking advantage of facial recognition technology or harnessing the emotional effects of music, these marketing efforts showcase the benefits of hyper-targeted marketing, as well as establishing a cognitive connection with consumers.

Targeted Youth Kids clothing gets the customized treatment with specifically targeted labels Implications - No longer a sub category of mainstream labels, children's fashion is growing in momentum with brands solely targeting that demographic. Highlighting youth culture and a more mature style preference, these brands are recognizing the desire, particularly among parents, to cater youths with more sophisticated and tailored products. The shift toward more customized children's products reflects a desire to provide kids with not just basic necessities, but goods that promote a more cultured lifestyle.
