Brainy Marketing: Neuro-Optimized Websites

Need to get more leads or sell more product? Do you want to create a stickier website that encourages visitors to stay and consume more content? Boost affiliate revenue? The vast majority of your visitor’s behavior is driven by emotion and unconscious processes – if you are only talking about features, benefits, and prices you won’t maximize your success. This panel of thought leaders from diverse disciplines will show you how to appeal directly to your visitor’s brain. You’ll learn how to apply the latest findings from neuroscience, neuromarketing, and behavior research to redesign your site, write persuasive copy, and trigger the visitor behavior you want. The expert panelists, all from different backgrounds, will focus on techniques that produce bottom-line results.
