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.

People Marketing: How I Learned To Love People - Curagami via @ScentTrail | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it

People Marketing shares hard won tips, ideas and stories about loving, curating, listening to your people to create winning online marketing.

We included this link in our Startups Revoluiton Scoop.it because startups are so WIDGET focused they forget PEOPLE provide the context and emotional connection needed to SELL. It is understandable that YOU love your widget, but your customers love THEMSELVES much more.

Creating "like me" moments mean your "product" becomes a movement your customers want to join. This journey from YOU and THEM (customers) to WE is the most important journey every website and all marketing is on whether the creators know it or not.

Types of Business Analytics  

(1) Descriptive Models:  Descriptive models look into customer’s history to often classify prospects into groups and categorize customers by preferences and life stage. Descriptive models can help you uncover reasons for success and failures in the past, ultimately helping you make informed decisions in the present.   

(2) Predictive Models:  Predictive model uses rules and algorithms to help predict a given outcome from specified units. The objective is to assess the likelihood whether a similar unit in a different sample will exhibit exactly same performance. Predictive models often perform calculations during live transactions to evaluate risk or opportunity in order to guide a decision.  

(3) Decision Models:  Decision models describe the relationship between all the elements of a decision to predict the results. This model drives set of business rules to produce preferred action for every customer or circumstance.

How To Capitalize On Social’s Multi-Platform Benefits #socialmediamarketing via @MarketingHits

How To Capitalize On Social’s Multi-Platform Benefits #socialmediamarketing via @MarketingHits | AtDotCom Social media | Scoop.it
The way consumers and brands use social media is changing. Consumers are engaging more than ever on social, and brands are relying on data to drive decision-making. What’s more, the platforms consumers interact on are constantly shifting in popularity.

Facebook was once a powerhouse, for example; however, growth is beginning to slow. Instagram, on the other hand, is on a quick incline to the top.

As consumers explore different social media channels, it’s imperative that marketers understand these shifting preferences. Where are consumers talking? Which social platform is the best at engaging millennials? What about baby boomers? Answering these questions is what drives a successful digital marketing strategy.

To answer these questions, Yesmail (my employer) compared its research of social media usage of 50 major retailer brands in five different categories to a Pew Research survey which identified social media usage trends among U.S. adults.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 20, 11:56 AM

OK -- this article never mentions the word storytelling, yet every single tenent listed -- and their definitions -- applies to storytelling. The post focuses on creativity, and storytelling is a creative act.


Here's how they translate into storytelling:

  1. You are a storyteller
  2. Storytelling is work -- it takes effort
  3. You must go through the motions
  4. Your brain is not a computer
  5. There is no right answer
  6. There is no such thing as failure
  7. You don't see things as They are -- you see them as You are


Go read the article by Michael Michalko to get the definitions for each principle. Then stoke those creativity and storytelling fires the rest of the week.
