About Ingeminate

“Ingeminate” is based on the Latin “ingeminō,” meaning to “repeat” or “reiterate.”

Did you Know?

Most people ingeminate, or repeat, an important point any time they need to drive it home. However, most people experience more ingemination (the noun form) in front of their TVs and other screens than anywhere else, because that’s where they encounter advertising. One advertising theory holds that an audience must see a message seven times before they internalize it, which explains why sometimes the same ad will appear during every commercial break in a program, or across multiple online media. Advertisers ingeminate to keep the brand in the forefront of the customer’s mind.
