Event Details

Marketing success rises or falls according to brands' understanding of their consumer's interests, values and aspirations. However, this fundamental need of marketing cannot be fully satisfied by simply asking consumers or through data analytics alone. Purchasing decisions are emotionally driven, and to truly connect with consumers, brands must comprehend how their consumers' brains respond to marketing stimuli. Neuromarketing incorporates neuroscience principles to study which emotions are relevant in human decision-making, and uses this knowledge to make marketing more effective. Understand the Consumer Brain Our brain processes millions of bits of sensory information every second, yet less than 1% is processed consciously...everything else is subconscious. Although the act of purchasing is a conscious decision, the emotional intent and motivation leading to that purchase is done subconsciously. So how do you effectively trigger your consumers' subconscious mind? In this presentation you will learn how advanced neuroscience technology is transforming the marketing industry by providing brands a deeper layer of consumer insight, leading to your marketing success.
