6 Brain Science Secrets that Rev Up Response

Nancy Harhut, Chief Creative Officer at HBT Marketing

New research by behavioral scientists confirms people don’t “make” decisions. Often, they just default to reflexive responses without even thinking! And while that can sound discouraging, it actually presents a big opportunity for you. Because if you factor in the decision defaults your customers and prospects rely on, you can increase your success. When your emails, landing pages, ads, etc. tap into the hardwired behaviors of customers and prospects, they increase engagement and response — automatically. Discover how to apply the latest brain science findings to your marketing messages. See numerous examples from a variety of companies. And find out how you can use the surprisingly powerful Endowment Effect, Availability Bias, Scarcity Principle and more to prompt the behaviors you want.

Maximize Your Brand – But Don’t Forget About the Law! The Legal Minefields of Influencer Marketing, Content Streaming, Free Trials and More

We live in a world where subscription-based companies are constantly building on strategies to capitalize on interactive influencer campaigns, stream engaging content, and capitalize on free trial and automatic renewal programs.  What many don’t realize, however, is how highly regulated the legal landscape surrounding the advertising and retail industries is – and how these laws apply to the arenas of e-commerce, digital marketing and social media.  The Federal Trade Commission (the FTC) is hyper-focused on the subscription economy, and can seek incredibly high penalties and consumer redress in the event of companies’ non-compliance with its rules governing subscription sign-ups and cancellations as well as influencer marketing and celebrity endorsement disclosures.  Further, companies streaming content need to be aware of the complex intellectual property landscape when negotiating clearances and licenses.  Join HBO Senior Counsel Dan Nemet-Nejat and Paavana Kumar, Partner at Davis+Gilbert as they discuss these legal minefields and upcoming changes to the law that all subscription-based companies need to be aware of to avoid becoming the regulators’ next target.

How to Use Your Membership to Unlock the Biggest Psychological Reason People Make Purchases

There are a lot of reasons people buy stuff online. They buy because of FOMO (fear of missing out). To improve social status. To Belong or Be Relevant. To Have Security… the list goes on.

However, one of the biggest reasons people buy stuff (or make any decision) is Sunk Cost, yet almost NO ONE is tapping into it yet. It’s often referred to as “The Sunk Cost Fallacy”, and people make all kinds of irrational decisions because of it. Online shopping purchase decisions are a big one!

Membership is the secret weapon to tap into this powerful buying behavior. In this presentation I’ll show you exactly how to structure your membership program to leverage Sunk Cost to skyrocket your sales and blow your competition out of the water.

For the past year, Publishers Clearing House and Media Cartographer Evan Shapiro have done six research studies of American media subscribers, surveying more than 200,000 people about their media and subscription habits. They’ve identified the churn and burn mindset of the younger subscriber, identified key differences between the generations on viewing habits and willingness to pay for content, found a ceiling for moviegoers (as opposed to movie streamers) and delved into the importance of sports, music, news for subscription stickiness and pointed to the significance of “other” to long term retention. In this session, head of PCH Insights and Product Smriti Sharma and Shapiro will go through their latest and greatest studies and tease out actionable insights for every subscription service.

The world is overflowing with content. Everyone is a creator, and now, even robots are in the game. Skip the lifeless ChatGPT generics. We don’t need more “meh” clogging up our inboxes. You are the front line of content quality.

Don’t just post to post. Tell a story. Make it sparkle. Take a stand. Give it a twist. Capture the moment. With a little creativity, orthogonal thinking, and the latest AI tools, we can turn your bland corporate communications into something remarkable your customers will actually read, love, react to, and share.

Added Bonus: Bring one of the products you’re looking to promote, and we’ll lead an instant WISTFul content brainstorming filled with imaginative ideas you can use.
