Why People Still Want Printed Copy in a Digital World

Do people still want printed copy in a digital world? The technological wonders of our digital age now give us the ability to bring products and services to clients at any time and into any location where there is an internet connection. In real estate marketing however, there is still a huge demand for hard printed copy.

Appealing to the senses

There is still a strong requirement among potential clients to have something tangible “souvenirs” to refer back to and show their friends and family. We are, after all, physical creatures and anything that appeals to our sense of touch and feel are likely to add a further dimension to our perception, and anticipation concerning the end product.

Although digital copies may only be a few clicks away, there is still the needs to locate, turn on a device, and then navigate to the specific online page or document. However the hard printed copy is right there. The tangibility can be translated to something real and offers an enhanced perspective of the presentation

Benefiting from human psychology

According to the business leaders Forbes, a printed copy is much better at connecting with our brains. Using eye-tracking technology, measurements in attention span and innovative questionnaires, a recent scientific survey uncovered some surprising statistics.

The research shows that hard copy actually requires 21% less mental effort to process than digitally transmitted information. Brand recall is also more than a third up on a digital copy from 44% to 75%.

Without getting “too technical”, hard printed copy is seen to act on the Ventral Striatum area of the brain to a greater degree than digital. In short, this means that print increases desirability and valuation.
