Using humor in marketing can be advantageous for your brand. It also adds a human touch. People remember it easier too! It gets people talking and spreading the word to generate more organic marketing for your business and brand.
Being funny makes you more relatable and seen as trustworthy and helps differentiate your brand. There is a potential downside by saying the wrong joke at the wrong time and you do not want to be offensive.
For example, the cartoon chosen for this article – it’s just funny, silly, or cute.
As Steve Olenski, Forbes contributor says, “So should you incorporate more humor into your marketing campaign? That depends on your brand characteristics, how much risk you’re willing to take, and how much work you’re willing to put into the finished product. Humor can certainly add new dimensions to your campaign, and earn you better results—but only if it’s used appropriately.”
Now I’m hungry and need to get a pastry!
