Publisher's Summary

Practical techniques for applying neuroscience and behavior research to attract new customers.

Brainfluence explains how to practically apply neuroscience and behavior technology and behavior research to better market to consumers by understanding their decision patterns. This application, called neuromarketing, studies the way the brain responds to various cognitive and sensory marketing stimuli.

This scientific approach to marketing has helped many well-known brands and companies determine how to best market their products to different demographics and consumer groups.

The Best Practical Guide to Neuromarketing

Would you listen to Brainfluence: 100 Ways to Persuade and Convince Consumers with Neuromarketing again? Why?

As someone who has read a lot of books on neuroscience, behavioral economics and how our minds affect our behaviors, I thoroughly enjoyed Brainfluence for its ability to bring the best of the entire industry to a book of 100 tips.

By no means will one learn all about neuromarketing by reading Brainfluence, but you'll certainly receive a great primer, be exposed to some of the most fascinating studies in the industry, and be presented with dozens of additional authors, studies and books for future reference.

As a marketer, I've been using Brainfluence as a cook book full of ideas for our A/B testing program. Great book - highly recommended.

wish there was more instruction.

I wouldn't say this book offers any "ways to persuade". it's more of a list of persuasion studies with very few examples of how to put them to use. I wish I went with another persuasion book.

Great to Keep Around!

Insight! That is the best word to describe this book. I gained so many insights that I never thought of. It really helped me make a contribution and impact in an internship I was during the same time.

There are so many great insights that it will have to be a book I read/listen through multiple times because there is just so much. In this way, I think it’s more of a reference guide rather than a great story; though, Roger Dooley does a great job of bringing real case examples to the principles.

Would recommend for anyone wanting to deepen their knowledge of marketing strategy.

a perfect introduction to neuromarketing

Dooley takes what can be a dense and complicated subject - the psychology of buying - and transforms it into bite-sized chunks which can be put into place by most businesses almost immediately. 100 "chapters" means it's easy to dip in and out of, and can easily be listened to alongside more "meatier" books. If you want more detail, try The Buying Brain by Pradeep, but this is great for any business wanting to think outside the box, and apply proven techniques that can increase their sales.

Enjoyable guide to the dark arts.

I bought this out of an interest in psychology as much as marketing, and I think you'll find it rewarding whichever of those is your primary focuss. Turns out the number of ways in which we are illogical in our behaviour is almost infinate, (well, there's at least 100 of them), and this book lays them out in an admirably clear and concise way, with useful summaries of each, and without unnecessary padding.

Narrator is fine.

Really easy to digest nuggets of information. All about advertising, how the human brain works and what you can do to push the odds in your favour. I'll listen at least 2 more times!

Some gems and some common sense

For those in other industries and for those looking to convince stakeholders using "science" this could be for you. For seasoned marketers who want to understand why common sense seems to work scientifically speaking, again this could be a good choice.
