Mood, Monotony And Motivation: Understanding Brand Success In 2022

Mood, Monotony and Motivation are key themes covered in the new report from TEAM LEWIS in partnership with GWI.

TEAM LEWIS, a global marketing agency, released a report with market research firm GWI today.

The report dives into how today’s multi-moment audience is evolving and the changes the pandemic has brought about in today’s marketing multiverse.

Markets covered in the report include Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Malaysia, Netherlands, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, the UK and the U.S.

“It’s no longer as simple as getting in front of your audience with a single message as many times as possible,” says Simon Billington, executive creative director, TEAM LEWIS.

“Consumer expectations of a brand’s interaction with them is clear.”

“They want unique, attention-grabbing creativity delivered in a personalised way.”

“The complexity of the message and the vehicle the message is delivered in is paramount to success.”

With a rise in screen time and device ownership, unrestrained social media usage and growing concerns surrounding privacy, today’s audiences have an increased desire to impact the world around them.

These shifts point to three key themes covered in the report.

Ending monotony to avoid marketing immunity, understanding how mood can impact an audience, and tapping into key motivators to foster more meaningful connections.
