The Power of Music in Advertising

I grew up in a very musical household. One that consisted of a lot of music from the 60s and 70s. Now while I was younger I would've much rather preferred the current "hip" music of the era, but now that I'm much older and much wiser, I find myself listening to the oldies but goodies. I will obviously always feel that the 90s possessed the BEST music (perhaps because it's the era I grew up in), but I'm a lover of ALL music honestly.

Music has a way of bringing us all together. I don't care what the genre is, I can honestly listen to anything and probably feel something. A simple melody, and a catchy lyric can instantly transform my mood. Music is just that powerful. I listen to music in my office while I work, in my car on the way to and from work, while I workout, and even if I am having a tough time sleeping, I turn some on.

Ironically enough, music plays a significant role for advertisers as well. Music in a commercial increases our attention to product information in a message and can even directly influence our attitudes. This doesn't necessarily mean if I like a song I will purchase the product featured in the ad simply because I enjoy the song. It does mean that I'm more likely to actually pay attention to an advertisement, therefore making a lasting impact on the viewer (or listener). Isn't that the overall goal of an ad, to make a memorable impact? So make sure your ad not only reels them in, but holds their attention. Video is an amazing and creative way to reach your audience.
