Engagement Autopilot: Have You Felt Its Impact?

An endless sea of people mindlessly on their phones

What is Engagement Autopilot?

Engagement Autopilot occurs when audiences scroll through social media and even engage with content passively. They may like, share, or even comment on a post without truly connecting with the message or remembering the brand behind it.

This phenomenon can transform even the most visually appealing and well-crafted ads into mere background noise, making it harder than ever to leave a lasting impression.

Have You Noticed the Signs?

  • Increased impressions but decreased conversion rates: You're reaching a wide audience, but this doesn't translate into meaningful engagement or sales.

  • Decent engagement metrics that don’t translate into actual business results: Your content seems to perform well in terms of likes and shares, yet this doesn't seem to impact your bottom line.

  • A sense that despite your content being engaged, it’s not truly being remembered: You've created content that checks all the boxes for a successful post, but it doesn't stick in the minds of your audience.

The Power of Nostalgia and Connection

At Intrigue Studios, we've ventured into a solution that seems to counteract the effects of Engagement Autopilot effectively: leveraging the nostalgic power we witnessed in the past. By revisiting the era where taglines and slogans were not just words but encapsulations of a brand's soul, we find ourselves rediscovering the art of making ads that stick.

The advertisements of the 80s and 90s, which many of us still recall vividly, succeeded because they did more than just sell a product; they told a story that resonated on a personal level. They connected with audiences through dreams, fears, aspirations, and humor, turning brands into symbols of moments in time, into cultural icons.

Why Did These Ads Work So Well?

They transcended the traditional boundaries of advertising to touch the very core of human emotion and experience. These ads spoke a universal language that went beyond mere visual appeal or catchy jingles. They embedded themselves in the cultural fabric of their time, becoming more than just advertisements; they became shared experiences.

Rekindling the Spark in Modern Advertising

Inspired by this, Intrigue Studios has embarked on a mission to blend these timeless principles with modern storytelling techniques. Our goal is to craft messages that resonate deeply, evoke emotions, and ignite conscious curiosity. This, we believe, is the antidote to Engagement Autopilot - and we've already begun to see the evidence of that in the results of the videos we are producing for our clients.
