  • Using Neuroscience to Trigger "BUY"

    Wish to improve how you persuade your audiences to buy from you? Begin by diving deep into her brain. Emotions play an overwhelmingly big part in decision making. The curious thing is that we decide with our emotions even when we think that we acted rationally.
    In studies where brain injury patients lose the use of their emotional brain centres (the limbic brain system), it was found that those individuals were unable to make the simplest decision.
    Often, they couldn’t even decide where they should have lunch. Or which shirt they should wear.
    The lesson for us is this: any form of marketing message which we churn out must have an emotional stimulus that influences decision making. Going solely on logical and rational benefits alone will not work.
    This training program seeks to enable your team to use contemporary neuroscience theory to embed emotions in your communication to trigger a buy decision in your target audience.
