For marketers, music does more than just paint a pretty picture – in fact, it is a highly strategic choice. Behind every song choice and original composition, advertisers combine music theory and frameworks to make sure their brand sticks in your mind. If they succeed, you may not even notice.
Episode 3 of our MktSoc Video Perspectives series, titled "How Advertisers Convince You with Music," explores marketers' strategies and thought processes when choosing music for their ads. Branding Director Andrew Ni explains the unspoken music theory rules to which marketers generally adhere – except when they strategically don't.
