In this advertisement, DHL uses the interactive experiment template in order to attract individuals to use their services.
As stated by Goldenberg et al’s study (1999), interactive experiment template uses the realization of the benefits of a certain product by involving the viewer in an interactive experience.
This is what DHL portrayed in their advert. Individuals had to engage in the advert by turning the pages of the magazine in order to receive the message conveyed by it.
With the use of these advertisements, the consumer and the manufacturer enter into dialogue which makes the message more memorable (Bezjian-avery, Calder and Iacobucci, 1998).
