The Importance of Emotional Appeal in DOOH Advertising
In the world of Digital Out-of-Home (DOOH) advertising, capturing attention is just the beginning. The real magic happens when you capture the heart. That’s the power of emotional appeal in advertising, and it’s particularly potent in the DOOH arena, where advertisers have a unique opportunity to engage with consumers on a different level.
What Makes Emotional Appeal So Effective?
Humans are emotional creatures. Our decisions are influenced not just by logic and reasoning but by our feelings and experiences. When advertisers tap into emotions—be it happiness, nostalgia, humor, or even sadness—they create a memorable experience that resonates with their audience.
Did you know that consumers who have an emotional connection with a brand have a 306% higher lifetime value?
Emotional appeal works because it transcends the mere features and benefits of a product or service. It connects on a deeper level, creating a bond that can lead to brand loyalty and advocacy.
The High-Impact Environment of 7-Eleven®
When we talk about DOOH advertising, there’s no overlooking the incredible platform provided by 7-Eleven® stores. With a reach of over 5 billion people annually, as verified by GeoPath, the potential for impact is enormous. The stores offer a high-traffic, captive audience for brands to deliver their emotionally charged messages.
Take, for example, the heartwarming holiday campaigns from Hersheys or the excitement-inducing announcements from Lotto. These are not just advertisements; they are experiences that stir emotions and leave lasting impressions.
Notable Advertisers and the Emotional Connection
Brands like AT&T, Goodyear, Amazon, and Chase Bank have leveraged the nationwide footprint of 7-Eleven® stores to not only showcase their products but to tell a story that resonates with consumers on an emotional level. These stories aren’t just heard; they’re felt.
Reeses, for instance, can evoke the sweet nostalgia of childhood with a single image, while a service like Goodyear can instill a sense of safety and security that comes from reliable tires.
Fun Fact: A study found that ads with purely emotional content performed about twice as well (31% vs. 16%) as those with only rational content.

Crafting Emotionally Appealing DOOH Content
Creating content that tugs at the heartstrings requires a deep understanding of your audience and what moves them. It’s about storytelling that aligns with your brand values and the values of your consumers. It’s about authenticity and relevance.
Remember, the goal is to evoke a feeling that will be associated with your brand long after the consumer has left the store. It’s not just about the immediate reaction; it’s about the lasting relationship.
