Startup Branding Basics | Small business owners often consider branding an expensive form of marketing. They think branding requires a big budget to hire an advertising agency or a branding expert to develop effective campaigns, and mass media to improve brand awareness. However, branding is one of the most important elements of any business, big or small, retail or B2B. A powerful brand strategy gives you a considerable edge in increasingly crowded markets.

What do we share online? This is how our brains decide!

What do we share online? This is how our brains decide! | Internet Presence |
Studies show that four basic emotions combine to create our experiences. Here's what that means for the way content is shared online.

Every day it seems like we feel hundreds of different emotions, each nuanced and specific to the physical and social situations we find ourselves in.

According to science, it’s not that complicated by a long shot. A new study says we’re really only capable of four “basic” emotions: happy, sad, afraid/surprised, and angry/disgusted.

But much like the “mother sauces” of cooking allow you to make pretty much any kind of food under the sun, these four “mother emotions” meld together in myriad ways in our brains to create our layered emotional stews.

Robert Plutchik’s famous “wheel of emotions” shows just some of the well known emotional layers.

What a terrific summary article this is about emotions in marketing. It covers not only why emotions work, the author Courtney Seiter also talks about WHICH emotions get shared and why.

Seiter covers happiness, sadness, fear, plus anger and the types of reactions each creates. I also like the charts and graphics she uses to make her points. 

And what I think is really cool is how she shares recent research from IPA dataBANK who validated -- once again -- that pure emotional content wins out over a combination of rational and emotional.

So check out the article. It is well done. If you want to gain mastery over crafting stories with specific emotional content, then this post will bring a lot of clarity to your work.

Interessant artikel over waarom mensen dingen delen via internet. Zowel positieve als negatieve emoties kunnen zorgen voor het virale effect. De woede die Wilde Geert momenteel en regelmatig effectief oproept, helpt om zijn dubieuze boodschap verder te verspreiden. Daar komt waarschijnlijk ook het ontzag vandaan als mensen zeggen: "Hij durft het toch maar te zeggen'. Dat zijn mensen, Nederlanders, die hun verstand overslaan, de emotie gaat voor. MInder mensen dan maar? Dat is een heel ander pleidooi.

It is an interesting article with neuroscience research involved. It is about the emotional suggestions that our brain makes leading us to share on the Internet. The challenge might be is contributions become Technique and focused on being positive in a contrived way. What does it mean in education?
