    YouTube-Infographic-Emotional Experience

    Emotional triggers in marketing can give you the chills, fuzziness or reminds you of who you are as a person. When you hear an emotional message, it triggers you to take some form of action – whether it would be to buy, share or just give your two cents. That’s why YouTube has a strong influence on purchases.

    According to ThinkGoogle, 72% of recent auto purchases agree that YouTube is one of the best place to go online to watch “in-action” videos of vehicles they are considering to buy.” 62% of smartphone purchasers use YouTube for how-to-videos and product reviews. And 66% of beauty purchasers uses YouTube to visualize how different products fit their lifestyle.

    So, for your next marketing campaign, consider creating an emotional experience with your product on YouTube.

  • Pinterest is from Venus, Google+ is from Mars

    Remember the book Men from Mars, Women from Venus? This 90’s bestseller guide reveals how men and women are different in their needs and behavior. Twenty-years later, this classic theory relates to Pinterest and Google+ gender split.

    Pintest and Google+ gender statistic

    Based on research, women continue to dominate Pinterest. 80% of the pins are from high income females who enjoy sharing “what she loves to get her hands on”. Pinterest, a heavily photo driven site, allows her to pin for aspiration – from fashion wears to the home décor for her city loft.

    So, if your product revolves around a female demographic than Pinterest may be the best social network.

    On the other hand, Google+ is heavily favored by males; making up 70% of the users. These contributors are well educated with a technology background, like your programmers and engineers.

    If you need to brand your software company or launch your mobile app than Google+ would be the best place to market.

    With that being said, create gender based buyer persona for your social media efforts. Your marketing message will be real to them because it’s relevant.
