Taylormade Posts Instagram Video; Golfers Start Drooling

This is one of the simplest, yet so effective, pieces of native advertising content we’ve seen in a while on social media.

So what makes this short video from Taylormade so impactful, relative to marketing and branding?

1. Simple: A close up of a ball teed up, showing the Taylormade brand, with little else.
2. Addictive: As many in the comments say, the sound is “heavenly,” and they “could listen” to it all day.

Sound ↑ — that’s better.
