How do you get someone to try a new coffee shop, buy your new product or hire you when they haven’t worked with you before?
This is the crux of marketing and why billions are spent in marketing and advertising. In today’s digital world, humans are so bombarded with ads that they tune out 90% of what is being marketed. Marketers are competing for attention, paying more for ads that are less effective. While catchy or clever marketing campaigns can grab attention, they rarely change human behavior.
At the core of good marketing is the art and science of human behavior change. Integrating the latest in social psychology research with effective design strategies, Trailhead members Amber Bieg and Deb LaSalle have developed a well-proven marketing methodology that causes new social behaviors, community norms and ultimately massive behavioral shifts. Their successful approach to social behavior change integrates Dr. McKenzie-Mohr’s Fostering Sustainable Behavior framework, Dr. Kahneman’s social psychology research and IDEO’s Human Centered Design (HCD) process.
