The Neuroscience of Shopping Marketing and Manipulation


A keen interest in human behavior is the only real prerequisite for this course
No previous knowledge required – I will take you step by step through the different concepts and models presented in the course
No specific materials are needed for this course. Taking notes is recommended
At different stages in the course, there will be questions presented about how you think and feel about some topics. It is highly recommended you answer them for yourself before you move on with the course
At different stages in the course, you will be invited to do some exercises. Concrete examples will be presented, however it is important (and fun) to do the exercise yourself as well


“If you buy – or sell anything, anywhere, you need this course!…”                                                                                                                              (review from Anne Jordan)In this highly entertaining and interactive course you will discover how and why marketing works. First we will need to understand what triggers us. We’ll be diving deep into our conscious and subconscious decision-making processes
and I’ll show you, with tons of concrete real life examples, how marketing strategies have been able to cash in on those processes.Now marketing hasn’t been waiting around for neuroscience to come up with insights about the brain to start applying these principles. Through trial and error, and a lot of testing, marketing departments were able to develop sound principles based on empirical evidence. In this course, not only will I show you what works, but also why it does so well. The scientific part of this course is based on the latest research in neuroscience and psychology and is brought to you through an easy-to-understand model of how our mind works.And we won’t stop there. You see, this is not a course on how to apply neuroscience to your own marketing efforts, even though I guess you could use the information here to do so. The real aim of this course is to educate consumers, and aren’t we all, so that next time we feel the urge to buy something, we are able to look beyond the marketing, and see if we’re just being manipulated or if we genuinely need or want to buy somethingBecause in the end, this course is about empowerment. It’s about being able to free oneself from consumerism. It’s about living consciously, being aware when we’re being played, and making educated choices.So what should you expect?Understand your subconscious mind – and how we make buying decisionsRecognize strategies used by marketers – and how they try to influence usUse simple rules of thumb – and avoid falling for umpulse buyingFree yourself from marketing manipulation – and make conscious buying decisionsAnd So Much More… such as survival instincts, sex, herding, obedience, starvation, neurotransmitters, countless commercials, and so on …
