Emotional connection

Has a banner ad ever made you laugh or cry? No? Bet a TV ad has and that reaction plays an important role in the effectiveness of advertising.

Making an emotional connection is a shortcut to sales and TV is the master of giving people the feels.

TV has long been the home of rich, narrative, evocative advertising – ads that tell stories while tugging at our heartstrings, stirring us to tears or making us smile.

So why is that? Well, TV gives brands the time and space to tell a story that builds tension with a beginning, middle and a satisfying end.
