What do John Lewis, Sainsbury's, M&S, Waitrose and Boots have in common? They all have released spectacular adverts for this holiday season.
Christmas adverts have become an important tool for several big-name companies in recent years. When comparing the content of these adverts, however, there appears to be a strict formula to which they stick. The adverts focus on telling an emotionally-driven story (the more tears the better), without trying to sell the audience a specific product.
The aim is to increase brand awareness and word-of-mouth amongst their consumers. These efforts make sense; since consumers have so many different shopping needs during the holidays, it's much more effective to promote attachment to your brand than to a specific product you carry.
