• Infographic: The Power of Experiential

    As experiential marketers, we’ve long understood the value of making one-to-one connections with consumers. By getting closest to the customer, we’re able to educate and engage in ways that some other forms of marketing simply cannot. However, while the value of experiential has always seemed rather intuitive, it has been challenging to quantify its impact to brands. In this infographic, we take a look at consumers’ growing desire for live experiences and why experiential should be part of your marketing mix.

    Here are four facts you need to know about consumers and their love of live experiences:


    Experiences > Possessions

    80% of consumers in the U.S. and U.K. believe that physical experiences lead to more lasting memories than physical items. They’re putting their money where their mouth is, too. In the last two years…

    40% said they increased their spending on new experiences

    38% said they decreased their spending on new items


    What Makes it Memorable?

    When asked to recall their most memorable life experiences, consumers said they were…

    24% Family moments

    24% Unforgettable trips

    17% Attending live events

    11% Education or work-related achievement

    The common thread? Ninety-one percent of those experiences were shared with others.


    Bring It, Brands

    83% of respondents in the U.S. and U.K. agree that the best way to build trust in a brand is to experience it first-hand

    82% want brands to create experiences that entertain, engage, and educate


    Proof is in the Pudding

    In The Value of Experience Research Report, consumers took part in four activities (Audio, Reading, Video, Live Experience) that marketed a fictitious brand to them. Afterwards, they were asked to describe the feelings that were evoked by each.

    Audio - Reading - Video - Experience

    Engaged 19% - 23% - 27% - 54%

    Entertained 19% - 32% - 36% - 66%

    When it came to both purchase intent, the brand experience stood alone. Consumers were three times more likely to purchase if they participated in the brand experience.
