Why ads should have Emotional appeal and Storytelling?

Emotional appeal and storytelling are important components of an effective ad because they can help to establish a connection with the target audience, and evoke strong emotions and feelings that can lead to action.


Emotional appeal can be used to trigger specific emotions such as happiness, excitement, fear, or sadness, which can help to create a memorable experience for the audience. When an ad is emotionally engaging, it can capture the attention of the audience, make them feel connected to the brand, and motivate them to take action.

Storytelling can help to make an ad more memorable by creating a narrative that engages the audience and draws them in. A well-crafted story can help to establish a connection with the audience, create a sense of empathy, and build trust in the brand. By telling a story, an ad can communicate a message in a way that is more engaging and memorable than simply presenting facts and features.

Let’s understand by the example of the Elder Care service provider Aapkilathi ad (festive theme), created by Nextlad ProductionThe ad has sadness and happiness both emotions and the story represents the brand value, which is dedicated to elders. #IsTyohaarBasApnoKeSaath

Another example is Amazon pay ad for India


In summary, emotional appeal and storytelling can help an ad to stand out, be memorable, and create a strong connection with the audience. By engaging the audience on an emotional level, ads can be more effective in driving desired actions such as purchasing a product or service, signing up for a newsletter, or visiting a website.
