Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In his first book, communications consultant-to-the-stars (Sprint, Nextel, Cisco, Nortel, TI, Motorola) and "expert in consumer behavior" Martin uses ideas from the worlds of science, technology, psychology, history, philosophy and business to demonstrate how a consumer's unconscious controls most of his or her behavior. As a result, Martin argues, companies large and small are wasting money and energy engaging the wrong part of the brain-rather than worrying over expected behavior or ultimate satisfaction, marketers should focus on how buying habits form through simple, time-tested methods like reward and repetition. How else would brands like Microsoft-infamously frustrating but ingrained in the culture-and Starbucks coffee-overpriced but ubiquitous (and literally addictive)-make it? In a reportorial style fit for both marketing executives and savvy consumers, Martin presents interviews with marketers, researchers and scientists that outline the principles supporting his method, delineating the executive mind from the habitual (unconscious) mind, exploring how an ideal product like the iPod targets both minds, and providing a blueprint for creating habitual buyers. Martin's argument requires readers to suspend some long-held beliefs about consumers, but rewards them with some eye-opening perspective.

From the Back Cover

"The Samsung Instinct was designed to be habit forming. Inspired by pioneering work by Dr. Neale Martin, Sprint and Samsung created the Instinct interface from the bottom up to work the way your brain works."--Doug Rossier, Sprint Instinct Marketing Lead "In "Habit," Neale Martin provides what seems to be a simple observation--that human behavior is largely managed through subconscious process. In startling fashion, Martin makes this point and then proceeds to undermine much of what marketers have come to believe as absolute truths. This is a worthwhile read, with significant implications to anyone who hopes to build brands and sell products."--John Stratton, Sr. Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Verizon "Neale provides some of the most comprehensive insights into marketing I have ever read. His understanding of today's market complexity is simply brilliant."--Derek Broes, Sr. Vice President, Paramount "At last someone has approached marketing with the clarity and precision of a brain surgeon."--George Ford, Marketing Director, Petrafoods ""Habit" reveals why traditional approaches to acquiring and keeping customers don't work anymore. Dr. Martin shows that by focusing on behavior instead of attitudes and intentions, companies can radically improve not only how many customers they win, but how many they keep."--S. Somasegar, Microsoft Senior Vice President, Developer Division ""Habit" is an essential read for all marketers, managers and executives. Dr. Martin has elevated the seemingly boring concept of habits to a science with implications for every business in every market. This excellent book not only explains why consumers behave the way they do, but what companies should do in light of these startling insights!"--Jagdish N. Sheth, Ph.D, Charles H. Kellstadt Professor of Marketing, Goizueta Business School, Emory University "Habit" begins with a revolutionary premise--95% of human behavior is controlled by the unconscious mind. This fact exposes the central flaw in marketing theory, market research, and a preponderance of business strategy--that customers are consciously aware of what they're doing. "Habit" explains why 80% of new products fail, why billions of advertising dollars are wasted every year, and why even satisfied customers aren't loyal. In "Habit," Dr. Neale Martin persuasively contends that recent research from the brain sciences reveals that our brain evolved two minds--and marketing is focused on the wrong one. By explaining how the mind actually works, Martin shows how 50 years of marketing theory is deeply flawed, and how your customers' habits thwart even your costliest marketing campaigns. "Habit" explains in practical terms how to work with both your customers' executive and habitual minds to not only make sales but more importantly, create loyalty. You'll discover how behavior actually rewires your customers' mind--and how to leverage this by refocusing on behavior, not on attitudes and beliefs. Martin offers a complete process for working with customers' unconscious and conscious minds together, to become your customer's habit, not just their choice. Using these techniques, you can finally achieve the twin holy grails of marketing: higher customer retention, and greater long-term profitability.
