Making Health Addictive: Employ Subliminal Messaging

Making Health Addictive:  Employ Subliminal Messaging | Preventive Medicine | Scoop.it

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,
ClickTell Consulting
