I read an interesting article yesterday about what makes advertisements stick in people’s minds. It said that the secret to making a “sticky” ad is to make the consumer have an emotional impact.

There are plenty of ads that focus on things like features, price, etc., but the ones that make us feel something are the ones that move us to buy.
