Today much of what is old is new once again. With the world changing at such a rapid pace, many long for the familiarity of times past. They want to return to a day when life was much simpler. It is for this reason that many companies are using old fashioned advertising techniques to bring in customers and to draw attention to their products.
Familiarity is key and tends to make a marketing campaign something that people feel comfortable with. Whether you realize it or not there is a certain warmth that comes from things that we were surrounded by as children. Just as if you walk into someone’s home and they are baking an apple pie you may be transported back to a time when the home of your youth smelled just like that. There is comfort in the memories of a simpler time.
It is therefore that many companies have also returned to offer customers something for nothing. Especially in times when the economy is not doing well, customers feel special and comforted by a company that is offering them freebies and items for nothing. These things can make your customers and potential ones feel warm and fuzzy about your business. Nostalgia is key to marketing success.
