marketing automation

I admit it, marketing automation is one of my obsessions. As a life-long marketer and someone who’s fascinated by behaviour, I get a bit giddy when I get to combine the two. And marketing automation sits comfortably at that intersection.

Consumer behaviour has always been an area of interest for me and has featured heavily in my marketing career. But understanding why we behave the way we do, took on a whole new direction when I started working with mindset.

But just because I work closely with mindset, it doesn’t mean that I’ve nailed the consumer-behaviour thing. Oh no! I consider myself a life-long student and with the exciting field of behavioural economics expanding rapidly as it’s doing, I have plenty of reading to be getting on with.

I first met Kenda at the Atomicon marketing conference (one of the best conferences I have ever been to BTW!). I overheard her chatting to someone all about cognitive biases and even though I’m no expert in them, I was glued. I knew right then, that I wanted to dive into a proper conversation with her.

It just so happened that her book, Hack the Buyer Brain, was about to launch, so we had an excuse to hook up and talk all about it.

Hack the Buyer Brain, the book

Hack The Buyer Brain aims to change the way you look at marketing by helping you understand the consumer brain, its motivations and behaviour for better marketing. 

The book:

  • Provides an understanding of why consumers do what they do
  • Breaks down and covers the science and data behind these insights, keeping it simple and easy to action
  • Combines behaviour, marketing strategy and content together to help you generate more leads, convert better customers and build longer customer lifetime value
  • Includes varied examples and case studies of real businesses succeeding with the strategy laid out

Just because you’re not a neuroscientist shouldn’t mean that you can’t access the awesome advances that buyer psychology has gone through, and use it in your marketing.  

During our chat we talk about

  • using marketing automation
  • the cognitive biases that marketers need to know about
  • how retain the human connection with your automation
  • how the brain perceives price
  • using artificial intelligence (AI) in your marketing
  • how to stack up the perceived value of your product or service

… and LOADS more!

So, are you ready?
