How Many Times Do Consumers Need to See an Advertisement Before They Make a Purchase?

Have you thought about the “why” when you try a new product or service? What does it take to hook you to try a different brand? It’s likely not random at all. Check out how marketing behind the scenes works for baiting the final sale.

Repetition, replication, and redo (x’s 15 +2)?

Reputation ads
Repeated information is the key to any advertising campaign. Today’s fast-paced, social-media-crazed consumers see 4,000 - 10,000 ads per day! In the past, we applied the Marketing Rule of 7, stating consumers needed to see an ad 7 times before making a purchase. Modern, digital age research believes this number has grown to possibly more than seven times that amount! Social media is relentlessly badgering you, compelling you to buy this and buy it now, so you feel better, look better, and simply achieve that dopamine spike with a purchase.

In order to stand out for your targeted consumers they need to see you and hear your marketing message many, MANY times before they decide to buy. Whether online, commuting, or at home, businesses are vying for your attention and compelling you to buy. Your marketing efforts need to be repetitive and consistent.

How Often Do You Surf Social Media?

As a business owner, you realize if you aren’t seen or heard, you aren’t selling anything. There are endless tactics to get in front of your consumer; social media, Google ads, Facebook ads, snail mail, radio, billboards, grocery receipts, shopping carts, movie theaters, online reviews, and word of mouth. Even Alexa is flooding me with advertisements as I create this article. The point is that getting your message out in various directions keeps you in the game. You have to be in the game in order to play the game.
