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.

Can An Amazon Store Teach Web Marketing? Yes & Here's How via @Curagami

Can An Amazon Store Teach Web Marketing? Yes & Here's How via @Curagami | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

How Become A Great Web Marketer?
Every time I suggest this idea to B2B content marketers they roll their eyes and think my suggestion stupid. Everyone can learn new ideas, ideas that inform all digital marketing, from creating an online store.

Each day someone asks how they can learn Internet marketing? Hard to sit in a classroom and learn this stuff. Better to DO IT and no better thing to do than use a tool such as Amazon's Associates to create an online store.

Think of how much stronger your personal brand would be if a potential hiring manager could see what you are reading, ask you questions about those books and get to know you long before an offer is made.


We live in a DIY time when 60% or more of the decision about YOU and your company's products, services and brands will be made BEFORE any active engagement (before picking up the phone or asking you to interview).  

Given how much scrutiny your brand is under BEFORE you ever meet a prospect be it for a job or to make a B2B sale wouldn't it be a good idea to do something simple, engaging and fun to show how much you know about digital marketing. Let's see say I have two resumes on a pile and qualifications are equal, but one has a link to a blog & a "bookstore".

Which resume gets more engagement? Let's say your B2B Software As A Service Company is up for a big project. I go to your site and see the books that made you. I, as the hiring manager, have read several of them. We have a connection now and who am I more likely to hire?

HUGE benefits for half a day's work and work that teaches you more about how the web really works than every class you are likely to take (unless I'm teaching it of course lol). DO don't STUDY and you will understand one of the most important concepts about web marketing.

Twitter Introduces Autoplay Video; Will Only Charge For Ads 100% In View For 3 Seconds via @MarketingHits

Twitter Introduces Autoplay Video; Will Only Charge For Ads 100% In View For 3 Seconds via @MarketingHits | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
Taking dead aim at the lucrative market for video advertising, Twitter announced today that it will start serving autoplay video to its users.

The move is no surprise. Given how well Facebook has been leveraging autoplay — to the tune of 4 billion views a day — it was only a matter of time before Twitter introduced its own way to entice more people to watch video on its platform.

With today’s move, Twitter is also displaying video larger within people’s timelines, the better to compete for  the estimated $7.7 billion U.S. market for online video ads.  Twitter autoplay will also work with Vines and continue working with animated GIFs. Like Facebook, Twitter’s autoplay will be activated without audio when a video comes into view on the screen. The sound will be activated and the video will display in an expanded view if a user clicks or taps on a video. In a wrinkle different from Facebook, if a user turns his or her device to a horizontal orientation, the audio will switch on and the video will expand to the full screen.

To guard against unexpected data changes, users will have the option to revert to click-to-play video or have autoplay only active when connected to wifi. And Twitter also said it will continue the click-to-play system for users with low bandwidth devices or in locations high data rates.

Why Social Media Insights Are A Gold Mine For Inbound Marketers via @MarketingHits

Why Social Media Insights Are A Gold Mine For Inbound Marketers via @MarketingHits | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
Inbound marketing isn’t new anymore. Brands of all sizes in any number of industries use it to generate qualified website traffic, leads and conversions. They’re writing articles, creating videos and sharing all kinds of content across the Web. It’s about sales, of course, but it’s also led to some really great content designed to improve the customer experience and increase brand awareness.

It’s only natural that inbound marketing will continue its upward trend and evolve even further as companies find more uses for it and refine their approaches. Educating customers with relevant information is the goal of any inbound strategy, but the challenge is figuring out how to create a continuous stream of content that’s actually interesting to a target audience.
