📖 Brand profile

3 ways to leverage the Verbatim Effect in product marketing
Did you know that humans are more likely to remember the gist of things rather than the details? 🧠
This psychological phenomenon, called the Verbatim Effect, plays a key role in ensuring marketing effectiveness. To help you leverage this in your business strategies this year, Stacked Marketer shared some tips on how to use it to sell your product and brand:
- Show, don’t tell. You’ve got to show your audiences what you want them to know. Remember: it’s easier to remember visuals than words.
- Tip: Use before and after images, lifestyle shots, and video testimonials.
- Use snappy, impactful slogans. Good slogans are memorable, and good jingles are earworms.
- Make your customers feel. The key is to be clear about what emotions you want to associate with your brand story. Humor? Romance? Adventure?
- Tip: Think about the emotions your products should evoke. For example, Coca-Cola evokes “thirst” in its commercials.
🥜 In a nutshell
You need to understand the gist of what makes your product marketable. And avoid unnecessary noise and clutter that could distract buyers from your message.
