Marketing is sometimes just like cosmetic surgery, while Behavioral Economics has all the tools to become a general hospital. Learn what is Behavioral Economics about and how this science of how customers behave and what makes them tick can make all the difference.

Introduction to Behavioral Economics

Everybody is looking for the “moon shots” which will revolutionize marketing. Rory’s view is that it’s not technology which will revolutionize marketing as we know it today but something else.

“My experience of marketing over 30 years is - If you find out something that works, try testing the opposite because that might work as well.”

Why Behavioral Economics in Marketing

Dan explains why we consider a price to be more fair when visible effort is involved, and reveals a few simple tricks that business owners can use to justify a higher price.

We want prices which feel fair otherwise we won't buy. Yet the way we assess fairness is quite arbitrary.

Fairness and Perceived Value

Disenchanting to experience, enchanting to use, that's loss aversion in a nutshell. What's the right appeal? What on the other hand, can backfire?

You’ll find IKEA packs quite a punch in this video; it even has an effect caring its name: The IKEA effect. How to use it, we will tell.

How to make someone feel like they own something before they’ve even purchased it? Why it works? It's all about the so called, Endowment effect which helped us increase job ad conversions by 57%.

The Power of Loss Aversion

It's not that less is always more. Too many choices are bad but taking away options has to be done with precision of a watchmaker. Learn how and what to do when you, in fact, can't cut down anything.

Anyone who has picked flooring for their living room, will testify that having to choose from 156 options sets one on a journey of headache and prolonged dissatisfaction. Granted we were able to choose, but sometimes we just bail.

What’s there to do when dealing with choice overload? Frankly much more than just having to cut the options down.

Learn about examples which employ “but you are free” effect, Choice closure or Chunking. All these can have a great impact on the ease with which we choose and how happy we are about it. Chinese restaurant menus could tell stories and they certainly do.
