Making Health Addictive: Employ Subliminal Messaging

Making Health Addictive:  Employ Subliminal Messaging | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it
Since I gave a keynote at the 2013 Connected Health Symposium called “Making Health Addictive,” I’ve been posting on this topic in order to explain some of the concepts in more detail and to get yo...
ClickTell Consulting's insight:

Blended delicately, neuroscience, marketing and advertising can produce the sweetest pill that preventive care of today could wish for.

A while back at ClickTell Consulting we coined the term “Counterising”, for counteracting advertising. This came about as a result of trying to formulate an effective evidence-based model to encourage a healthy lifestyle in the field of chronic disorders.

Needless to say implemented properly insight of this nature offers a tremendously healthy ROI. Why else would companies such Coca-Cola & McDonalds spend as much money as they do in successfully trying to encourage us to buy into their message and product?

Sepe Sehati,
