The Power of Pure Emotion Drives People to Action

The Power of Pure Emotion Drives People to Action | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

This article is by Mars Dorian for businessgrow this piece is based on John Kearon's talk at a conference about the power of emotion and why you need to make people feel something to get them to do something.


Jan Gordon: My commentary


Know your audience and speak to their listening


This was mentioned in this article by the author who paraphrased

what John Kearon said:


”We are feeling creatures. Content matters so much LESS than you think it does. Do something shocking or exhilarating in your marketing, but don’t be bland. If people feel nothing, they do nothing


Do the best companies make you think or feel? The author suggests feeling is what makes things happen".


Jan Gordon: 


Content in any form is an important part of marketing. It's the door opener, the bridge that can lead to comments, relationships, brand advocacy, transactions and other opportunities that might not have otherwise happened. Using emotion that strikes a chord with your audience is very important.


This was a response from Mars Dorian to one of the comments and I absolutely agree with him: (again, know your audience, this might not apply to everyone).


"haha, I think the limits of pushing that emotional zone haven't been pushed yet - because companies as well as solopreneurs tend to hold back on the edgy, but effective stuff".



Here are some highlights that I think apply to content curators/arketers particularly


"PURE emotion is the sole buying decision influencer — because it’s targeting your oldest and most powerful part of the brain – the fight-or-flight REPTILIAN BRAIN".


Here are a few suggestions that caught my attention particularly for content marketers/curators:


Concentrate on the feeling benefit of your products and services


**show pictures, words and/or videos of how people feel after they bought your product or services - What state do you want them to feel?


Write Visual:


**The easier it is to grab your sentences, the more your audience can picture it. If they can "picture" it, they can feel it.

Here is a very quick article listing the 6 C's needed for storytelling success. I like this post because it's not a laundry list of elements to include a story. Instead it's about the 6 C's of story practice -- like Commitment. Or Clarity.

 

Sure, you need to know how to craft a story. But underneath the crafting, these principles are at work. Combined with a well-crafted story, you will experience greater success.

 

Written from a marketing perspective, these principles are the same for leadership and influence.

 

So grab this list, take action on these practices, and story on!
