The Impact of Behavioral Science on Marketing Decisions
Posted September 22, 2017by Fresh Squeezed Ideas ,Fresh Squeezed Ideas
There is emerging evidence that Marketing best practices have been built upon a number of beliefs about human behavior that are not necessarily true or reliable:
That stated preferences are stable over time (they are not)
That choices are made based on personal taste (much less than you think)
That people can accurately predict what they need in the future (they can't)
Increasingly, Marketers are beginning to understand why stated intention and behavior often don’t align. Behavioral Sciences shine a spotlight on the sources of misalignment, and inform improved go-to-market strategies. This webinar will bring you up to speed on the newest behavioral science methods and their application to market research, as well as introduce the pillars of behavior drivers that impact all stages of marketing, from Insight to Strategy to Execution.
REGISTER FOR THIS WEBINAR TODAY! You will learn about how to leverage Behavioral Science Insights to strengthen your marketing strategies and executions.
Dr. Rajwant Sandhu, Dir- Behavioral Science Practice, Fresh Squeezed Ideas
Raj’s unique background as a Ph.D. in Behavioral Psychology, and as an educator (B.Ed) forms a power combination for market research as she has the expertise to understand the key drivers of human behavior and the ability to translate this knowledge towards actionable business solutions.
Over 7 years, Raj has led both qualitative and quantitative research projects exploring various facets of the drivers of human behavior including decision making, sensory and emotion processing, and addictions. In addition to publishing 5 research papers, the impact and broad application of her research have led to her work being featured on Discovery Canada, BBC, and the Daily Mail. As the first psychologist at Fresh Squeezed Ideas, Raj offers a unique perspective and an expansive knowledge base on the cognitive processes that shape everyday behavior. She draws on this knowledge to derive valuable insights into consumer behavior, and to design research that asks the right questions in the right way, as she knows that insights are only as strong as the research upon which they are based. Raj is a passionate and innovative researcher, who loves to question and to be questioned.
