Just in time for the upcoming holiday season, the latest issue of Research World, the leading global magazine on data, research and insights industry, features EyeSee and Twitter study on best practices for social media holiday campaigns. The two companies joined forces to identify effective attributes of holiday ads and offer insights that help marketers generate longer dwell times and elicit positive emotions along with increased recall, product awareness, message association, and purchase intent.
Twitter and EyeSee Research conducted a large-scale eye tracking and facial coding study that included 35 Twitter holiday ads of major brands and more than 1,200 respondents. The impact of emotional content was tested, such as ads pointing out joy of giving/receiving or family warmth during the holiday season. Features often present in online ads – such as free shipping and holiday deals – were examined as well, along with certain elements of creative solutions: presentation of product, brand logo or humans in the ad and holiday hashtags in the Tweet copy.
The study includes the following findings:
• Purchase consideration is 27% higher for ads focusing on gift giving rather than family atmosphere;
• Featuring logos in holiday ads leads to 133% higher brand recall;
• Attention and brand connection is 10% higher for ads highlighting the product;
You can find more details of the research in the October issue of Research World, as well as on our blog.
