Storytelling has defined humanity’s evolution since the beginning of time and plays a vital role in enabling brands to connect meaningfully with their target consumers in a compelling way that goes above and beyond the factual and functional. In today’s age, defined by so much digital noise, storytelling is a vital way to separate your brand from the rest. In this talk, Molly Rowan Hamilton takes us through the fundamentals of powerful brand storytelling, setting up vital strategies for using it to enable your brand to succeed.
Joan and Stephen will share the learnings from the National Lottery’s Social Media Attention study, the first part of which they shared with us at IAB Connect H2 2021. This is the first study of its type in Ireland, conducted by Red C Research in partnership with Karen Nelson-Field of Amplified Intelligence. The state-of-the art research programme utilises Amplified Intelligence’s proprietary Gaze AI software to deliver an unparalleled measure of continuous granular attention. The unique process assesses attention towards real advertising on respondents’ own social media channels using the latest in eye tracking technology.
