Being able to always look on the bright side of life is a blessing. A sense of humor is an essential life skill, as laughter makes everything better. It is a vital part of our psychology, and it helps us process all kinds of information.
Therefore, wise store owners know that the fastest way to attract and fascinate their customers is to make them laugh out loud.
Humor simply grabs our attention, and its use in marketing is a tried strategy for brands to ensure that their campaign will affect the audience and will remain in their memory.
Through their funny advertising campaigns, organizations make an emotional connection with consumers and create a meaningful relationship with their target audience.
A 1993 Journal of Marketing study evaluated the multinational effects of humor on advertising, and it found that ‘humor is more likely to enhance recall, evaluation, and purchase intention when the humorous message coincides with ad objectives, is well-integrated with those objectives and is viewed as appropriate for the product category.
Under such circumstances, humorous advertising is more likely to secure audience attention, increase memorability, overcome sales resistance, and enhance message persuasiveness.’
