WHAT IS NEUROSCIENCE?

Consumer neuroscience integrates nonconscious measures to capture responses moment by moment, offering a more complete view of the consumer. Key methods include eye tracking, measurement of brain activity, and facial coding.

WHY SHOULD MARKETERS CARE?

Marketers use neuroscience to answer the question: How do consumers’ minds actually work? It can help marketers uncover more data that leads to deeper insights and, ultimately, more effective campaigns.

HOW CAN IT HELP YOUR BUSINESS?

Although only a small number of respondents (10 percent) attributed revenue growth to the use of neuroscience, those who did said it contributed a sizeable amount (an average of a 16 percent increase in revenue).

 
Worldbuilding - The Future of Storytelling, with Wild Card

In an age where consumer attention spans are at an all-time low, something curious is happening: under the right circumstances, consumers are spending hours - even days - immersed in lush fictional worlds such as Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, and The Avengers. However, world building isn't just for blockbuster entertainment franchises. When executed well, brands can create immersive worlds of their own, significantly driving brand loyalty in the process. We spoke with Tara Deveaux and Shawn Shahani of Wild Card about a new study on world building and consumer behavior. They shared what marketers could learn from Hollywood producers, and gave tips on creating a world of engagement around your brand.

You Can't Go Home Again: A Return to Work Sites After COVID-19

Organizations have undergone unprecedented changes in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. Businesses with the ability to do so have shifted to a work from home structure, which the firm Global Workplace Analytics forecasts may make up 25 to 30 percent of the workforce by 2021. But for many companies, productivity and essential tasks must be done in a physical office space. While it’s still uncertain when employees may return to their workplaces, it’s vital that leaders look into the precautions and adaptations that will be necessary in many cases to ensure the safety of their employees.

“I don’t think neuroscience will ever replace what we’re doing. What I think it does is it augments our understanding about how the places we create might likely elicit more profound emotional reactions and deeper connections to our brand experiences. All of our guest engagements have to provide experiences that have profound emotional resonance and long-term memory connections. So, when we’re creating environments, we have multiple places within our hotels where we have an opportunity to connect in a meaningful way that enhances the likelihood of fostering empathic relationships. Neuroscience gives us an understanding of how people might likely interact at a particular location. What this does is augment our understanding about what tool we might likely want to use to engage in a way that’s more relevant.”
