How do we convince someone to do business with us, to refer us to ideal customers, or to become a loyal customer themselves? How do we convince someone that we are the best option to fill their need or to to bring them value? This is the power of persuasion. The finest examples of persuasion can be found in the advertising we have been exposed to and motivated by for hundreds of years. Using historic examples of popular advertising campaigns and exploring the impact of some of the world’s greatest brands on our culture, Murphy will lead the group in an engaging 50-minute discussion about what persuades us and what does not. We will also discuss emotional versus logical decisions and which is the greater motivator. The audience will leave with a clear understanding of how knowing your audience and uniquely solving their “pain” can turn them into master persuaders-and increase their sales! The talk is followed by a supportive Q & A period.
