Why Is Creativity Important In Advertising?


It may be a little disheartening for advertisers to read but research suggests that only 16% of advertising is both recalled and correctly attributed to the brand, suggesting 84% of ad spend could be going to waste.

A recent study revealed that internet users are now spending an average of 2 hours and 22 minutes per day on social networking and messaging platforms. That may seem like a lot of time to engage with potential customers, but on average, you have around 5 seconds of that time to grab your visitor’s attention.

We’re bombarded by advertising every time we open a browser or pick up a tablet, so creative ads which can cut through this constant onslaught of content are essential for success.

Brand Love

Creativity can help brands to create a following, as well as promote their products. A highly creative ad is likely to make its mark with consumers. It turns out that many people believe that a brand is high-quality and worth their attention, simply because they’re impressed by the effort that went into producing such a creative advertisement.

From brand love, you end up with a customer who will also advocate for your brand – Expanding your advert’s reach even further.
