Empathy is the x-factor of marketing

 

Research has shown that more users are channeling their sense of community on social mediums like Facebook. Brands and marketers trying to reach potential customers online can capitalize on the surging trend of empathy-driven marketing by posting advertising content which uses emotional appeals like nostalgia, group mentality, relationships, fear and triumph without a clear call to action or heavy-handed marketing message. This type of marketing material is more likely to be shared, distributed, and possibly even go viral in the unpredictable world of the web.

 

Digital Marketing Executive, Entrepreneur, and Forbes contributor Abhilash Patel writes, “This is marketing at its most powerful, I think, because it elicits reactions at the speed of light. Millennials are empathizing with every click, view, and share. It’s our job as marketers to keep up.” By using Empathy as your tool for success, the marketing efforts of your brand can identify and resonate with those around you.
