Flavilla Fongang: The secret of Neurobranding and Neuromarketing

Share This

Neurobranding is often used by big brands such as Nike, Apple and Coca-Cola, but it’s seldom written about. So, what is Neurobranding and how can it help in business?

The secret of neurobranding and neuromarketing is to tap into your audience’s pain points and demonstrate the importance of your brand, product or service through contrast.

To stimulate engagement you need to emphasise the tangible value, use visuals, and strike an emotional chord. Here is the process:


Diagnose the pain

1 – Self-centred

Our brain is highly stimulated by content that appeals directly to us and our situation. Does your product or service fix a problem? Focus on the problem to help potential buyers self-diagnose. I.e. A beauty product that reduces wrinkles might focus on how wrinkles make people feel. Diagnose the pain in your marketing.


Differentiate your claims

2 – Contrast

The brain is trained to notice contrast. If your content marketing is unique it will stand out from the crowd. Make your content unusual, demonstrate the value, and people will share it. This should be apparent throughout your marketing.


Demonstrate the gain

3 – Tangible

As people, we are only concerned with what we can see. Demonstrate the value that your product/service provides in a real and familiar way. Demonstrate why prospects need to have it. Make an emotional connection.


Deliver to the reptilian brain

4 – Beginning & End

We are highly influenced by the beginning and end of an experience; and not that fussed with what’s in the middle. By placing a high value on the expectation and the delivery/how people feel at the end, prospects feel assured of the outcome.


5 – Visual

A picture is worth 1000 words.

By showing a visual representation of what you plan to deliver, you are helping the consumer to understand what you are saying without having to involve the other areas of the brain.


6 – Emotion

Triggering positive emotions can also be effective, though the reptilian brain is more drawn to negative emotion.


It might sound complicated but focusing on these elements will help you to get more sales.

Neurobranding is effectively using mental triggers, emotions, and experiences to lead your prospects to make a buying decision. There is a reason why big brands use it – it works!
