The myth of the zombie consumer

Much of the fear expressed by critics of neuromarketing seems to be based on an implicit assumption that consumers need to be protected from neuromarketing because they’re weak and passive and, therefore, easy dupes of wily and clever marketers. This is an ironic assessment, because if these critics took the time to understand the brain […]

Why neuromarketing is here to stay

Not surprisingly, we (the authors of Neuromarketing for Dummies) believe neuromarketing is here to stay — otherwise, we wouldn’t be writing this book!

Intuitive Marketing

Lately I’ve come to the realization that neuromarketing isn’t enough. As I’ve argued before in this blog, neuromarketing hasn’t achieved the uptake many of us expected in the early days, when we were sure our radical new measurement techniques would sweep away the old world of consumer surveys and self-reports, and usher in a new era of […]
