Have you felt the allure of nostalgia in media, like when Stranger Things takes you back to foam-covered headphones of the 80s, or a Fleetwood Mac song, linked to a TikTok trend, reminds you of the steady hands required when tuning in the clock radio dial?
That can be a strong psychological draw, and the best marketing teams know that nostalgia can play a big role in winning over their target market, if they can get their cues just right for the people they’re looking to reach.
Which is worth considering in your campaigns – and if you are looking for a nostalgic angle, this new infographic from Spiralytics will help.

“Nostalgia is defined as the longing for the past, especially for people, places, and periods with favorable associations.

Again, a powerful, and potentially valuable aspect to consider in your marketing. Take a look at the full infographic below.
