  • The 5% of the iceberg above water represents the part of the brain that actually thinks and is capable of planning ahead. The rest of our brain activity is all sub-conscious, which means we are operating on auto-pilot most of the time. If you incorporate the psychology of persuasion along with neuroscience principles you can achieve double digit or even triple digit lifts in conversion &lt;Click&gt;
  • Now, let’s take a closer look at the human brain. When it comes to decision making and processing incoming information we actually use 3 different parts of our brain.The “New Brain” also known as the neo-cortex is the part of the brain (above water) that actually thinks, it processes rational data and shares its deductions with the other two brainsThe “Middle Brain” also known as the limbic system feels, it processes emotions and gut feelings and also share its findings with the other two brainsThe “Reptilian Brain” also known as the brain stem decides, it takes input from the other 2 brains, but it controls the final decision making process. The reptilian brain is automatic it controls your heart-beat, digestion and you fight or flight response.Now, that you know that the true decision-maker is the Reptilian Brain, your entire website conversionstrategy should apply different communication principles in order to stimulate this part of the brain. How to Stimulate the Reptilian Brain:Self-Centered-It has no patience or empathy for anything that does not concern its immediate survival and well-being.*Contrast - allows the ‘Reptilian Brain’ to make quick and safe decisions. Without contrast, the ‘Reptilian Brain’ enters a state of confusionTangible- The reptilian brain is always seeking what is tangible, friendly, and familiar. It likes things that are easily recognizable.*Beginning and End- the reptilian brain has a short attention span and only remembers what’s in the beginning and the end*Visual and Emotional – the reptilian brain is highly visual and is strongly triggered by emotions 
  • Test Pricing display theory pertaining to Font size, Dollar signs, commas and emphasis on savings (You save vs. standard pricing display)- MSRP: $26,987 (Control)- Add Internet Price (Variation A – 13% increase)- Increase font size on MSRP and add .00 reduce font sizeof internet price, YOU SAVE largest and add .00 (Variation B – 28%)

  • The Credit App form that you see here is not an obscure form. This form, or one like it is
  • 1) Opportunity to merchandise a lower price during “moment of truth”, 2) Competing &amp; conflicting calls to action, 3) unnecesseary, enormous, vague, ambiguous text field, 4) unnecessary, inactionable, “cluttering” fields. Also, the disjointed double columns (some rows have 2 fields, some don’t), create even further friction

  • Use a mile one site
  • Now, let me show a few very effective low cost tools that leverage the master framework to instantly increase conversion on your website. Here’s an example of lead capture coupon that launches in the front or back of your website to offer your visitors a cash discount towards the purchase of a new or used car in return for their contact information. I know, I know, what you are thinking…. Displaying an offer in this fashion is “annoying” or “intrusive” Well, I have good news for you, according to analytics that we have collected on over 2 million leads generated in this fashion. We are the only ones that find these offers annoying and that’s because we are on our own websites multiple times per day. The impact of this technique has a negligible effect on bounce rate and huge lift in lead volume.
