Аs the market demands more and more and the technology is moving faster and with higher speed, we need to know how to adapt fast and define our brand communication better, according to the target we need to reach.
According to the neuromarketing science, every single brand provokes in the customers’ head different thoughts and emotions.
That is why when defining the content we need to address, first, we need to know how our customer makes decisions to buy a product.
The way customers react to the brands
Brands convey messages that fit precisely to the selected target group of their target and make their hearts beat faster with a result that specifically these people decide to buy the item. Everyone else can be ignored by the brand. That's how it works in B2C, but in B2B such segmentation in the target group is challenging, because of the target is made of many different people with different functions and ways of thinking. How then can a brand appeal to all these different people on an emotional level? 80 percent of our decisions are made on autopilot and unconscious and we are not thinking about it. So the reaction of the brain when we see a brand is immediate - good or not good - we do not think about it. We have to understand how our brain is working, which emotional system is in our brain, how important is it and which one is more important to us.
The reward system
Every decision is based on our emotions and depends on our reward system. There are 4 types of emotional reward systems that affect the way the brain reacts to the brand communications: Autonomy is the first one and it is when people ask themselves: Will this brand make me stronger, more successful than others?. The second type is Excitement and it is when people recognize the brand as a way to discover new things. People who look for safety and reliable it may be not so important - they are in the third group where Certainty is a priority. There is also a group that cares more about the care and the support and need a harmony in the social life. We call it the group of Care/Support.
So we have to adjust our brand communication to the reward system of the customers. On the internet is complex but not impossible.
When is content the king?
Everything starts with the content we create. After it is created we can position it in our campaigns. Once we use it, we can measure how it affects the brains and after the measurement, we can create a profile of the user. And also we can provide to the user the right experience according to his profile. We need to optimize our communication and go a step further. Using the Drupal platform allows us to know what the user is looking at, how much and one we create his emotional profile, we can synchronize all the information and we can create a face of the company which allows us a one to one communication.
