Folder Test, Face, Memorization, Ads
A large amount of literature in psychology and neurosciences demonstrates that attention is preferentially and automatically oriented toward faces. This stimulus is fixed longer and processed faster compared to other classes of visual stimuli (objects). This article investigates if and how face presence in print ads affects the memorization of ads content. A folder test procedure was used where ads, with or without faces, were inserted. Findings suggest that face presence in ads image positively influences ads memorization. Implications for advertising conception and promotion campaigns are discussed.
