How People Choose
Get People To Do What You Want By Limiting Decision Stress
April 14, 2015
Why Read This Report
Marketers miscalculate how consumers make purchase decisions. Why? Because the rapid adoption of digital technology gives marketers a false sense of precision about how they predict consumer behavior and adds stress to people's decision-making processes. Humans are actually very irrational creatures; according to a Harvard Business School study, we make 95% of our purchase decisions with no active consideration at all. In this report, we use the primary dimensions that create stress for decision-makers — what's at stake and available time — to narrow choices into four key decision types. Get people to choose your brand by marketing to the critical influences for each type of choice. The results will provoke personal branding, one-to-moment marketing, and a decline — that's right, a decline — in advertising spend.
