Book Description

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

Brainfluence explains how to practically apply neuroscience and behavior research to better market to consumers by understanding their decision patterns.

With quick and easy takeaways offered in 60 short chapters, this book contains key strategies for targeting consumers through in-person sales, online and print ads, and other marketing mediums.

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. Brainfluence offers short, easy-to-digest ideas that can be accessed in any order.

  • Discover ways for brands and products to form emotional bonds with customers
  • Includes ideas for small businesses and non-profits
  • Roger Dooley is the creator and publisher of Neuromarketing, the most popular blog on using brain and behavior research in marketing, advertising, and sales

Brainfluence delivers the latest insights and research, giving you an edge in your marketing, advertising, and sales efforts.



Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

According to leading neuroscientists, 95 percent of all thoughts, emotions, and learning occur before we are ever aware of it. Yet, most marketing efforts forgo the vast subconscious and instead target the rational, conscious mind. If you want to get ahead of your competition, it's time to stop selling to just 5 percent of your customer's brain! Through the wonders of modern neuroscience, tools now exist that can help explain the brain's cognitive processes. When you understand how your customers' brains work, you can appeal to the powerful subconscious—and get better results for less money.

Brainfluence explains how to apply neuroscience and behavior research to better market to consumers by understanding their decision patterns. Neuromarketing studies the way the brain responds to various cognitive and sensory marketing stimuli. Analysts use this to measure a consumer's preference, what a customer reacts to, and why consumers make certain decisions. With quick and easy takeaways, Brainfluence contains key strategies for targeting consumers through in-person sales, online and print ads, and other marketing mediums.

Neuromarketing can benefit your organization—whether a business or a nonprofit—in measurable ways. Get easy-to-implement, detailed tactics that are proven to boost sales, including:

  • Ease the very real pain of high prices through bundling, using decoys, and anchoring your prices effectively

  • Use images of money to stimulate a consumer to make a selfish purchase, like a sports car (but avoid these tactics when encouraging the purchase of a gift)

  • Win loyalty with rewards and quality contact time with the customer

  • Keep your brand associations consistent (and consistently good!) and become the more familiar brand

  • Build sensory features into your products, services, and marketing to appeal directly to the emotions and stored memories of your customers

  • And much more!

Brainfluence delivers the latest insights and research, giving you an edge in your marketing, advertising, and sales efforts. Your customer's subconscious mind is a vast potential resource—this book explains how to tap it.

"You can never be too enchanting, so read this book to learn even more ways to change people's hearts, minds, and actions. It's always good to have some science behind your tactics."

Christophe Morin, coauthor of Neuromarketing and CEO, SalesBrain

"Using the most modern neuroscience research out there, Roger Dooley's insightful new book, Brainfluence, will serve as a how-to guide for driving a successful business past its competition."
Martin Lindstrom, author of Brandwashed

"For years I've turned to Roger Dooley to keep up with the cutting edge of neuromarketing. Now with Brainfluence, Roger gives smart businesspeoplea one-stop unfair advantage. This book is a must-read."
Brian Clark, CEO, Copyblogger Media

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, Actionable, Research-based Advice December 20, 2011
Format:Hardcover
As a psychologist and marketer, I've been a long-time fan of Roger's blog and was excited to see him finally write a book. Brainfluence strikes a great (and rare) balance between being research-based and academic while still being clear and actionable. The market seems to be flooded with one or the other - academics who can't communicate, or marketers who only have opinions with nothing to back them up.

I've read many of the classics, like Cialdini's "Influence", so I was pleasantly surprised to find not only new data in Brainfluence, but new ways of looking at that data. The "100 Ways" approach made for a great collection of real-world examples and I definitely walked away with some ideas for my existing clients.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sound business advice backed by research! December 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The great thing about the web is that you can find answers to almost anything online. The problem is there's a lot of mis-information out there. Theoretical advice over what works and what doesn't and a lot of it isn't backed by much proof. Some would be expert tells you, "don't do that, it doesn't sound like a good idea." Here's the thing though, I want to know why. Why isn't it a good idea? What do you recommend? And why?

What I love about "Brainfluence" is that it answers the "why." It's a solid book, full of great insight that can be applied to various areas of your business. What's more is it's backed by research. And that's what I love about this book. It's like having my own personal business coach giving me sound advice, backed by research, over the various aspect of my business from pricing strategy to building trust with customers and potential customers. Definitely worth a read!

5.0 out of 5 stars At least 100 great fundraising ideas December 31, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm a fundraiser, not a commercial marketer, but I've found this book to be indispensable. If you're a fundraiser, and you prefer to base your fundraising on facts and science (as opposed to your own hunches and superstition), this is the book for you. It focuses on practical marketing takeaways from neurological research. There are 100 short chapters, each with a neuroscience finding and how it might be used in marketing.

I came away from this book with more than a hundred ideas I can test or just put to work in fundraising. If even a small percentage of these ideas improve results, my clients stand to make the price of the book hundreds of times over in the coming months.

Like any science, neuroscience research is extremely technical; the findings are hard for us non-scientists to understand, much less put to work. Brainfluence bridges the chasm between the research and the marketplace. It's an easy, quick, enjoyable read, and you'll get ideas you can use.

3.0 out of 5 stars I had just read Predictably Irrational February 13, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I feel like I'm reading Predictably Irrational all over again, but less elegantly written. I'm early in the book so far, but eight chapters in and the author is citing the same exact info from Dan Ariely's book. I'm hoping more original info pops up soon.

The section on copywriting was excellent. This is a great book if you are looking to be more persuasive in your marketing efforts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Insightful. Clear. Helpful. March 6, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Roger has done an outstanding job writing Brainfluence! This book utilizes scientific-based behavioral research and translates that science into actionable, real-world approaches for marketers. Science meets art. Each chapter provides a pragmatic, helpful way for marketers and businesses to leverage the behaviors uncovered by scientific methods.

After reading this book, I have several novel ideas on new marketing approaches and ways to improve my business results. In addition, the book is written in a very digestible format with the perfect balance of depth of content, clarity and a touch of levity to keep the reader fully engaged from cover to cover. Brainfluence gets a strong recommend from me.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's okay November 24, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
For me, a five star book blows my mind; a four star book opens up new avenues of thought; and a three star book is fine. This book repeats much of what is to be found in other neuromarketing books like The Buying Brain. There is nothing here that is new under the sun. I bought this book to deepen my knowledge of neuromarketing, but it did not help in that regard.
