BrainJuicer - turning human understanding into business advantage.

A System 1 approach for Building Profitable Brands

Add to MyJuice

Why System 1? Because most decisions by humans (and therefore consumers) are quick, intuitive & emotional. We aren’t logical creatures who weigh up options which is why persuasion-marketing doesn’t work. We choose on auto-pilot from 3 or 4 choices in any category. Profitable brand growthcomes from being one of those 3 or 4 choices among more people. Becoming one of people’s choices requires a successful, long-term, creative focus on just 3 Factors; Fame, Feeling & Fluency:

  • Fame: How readily your brand comes to mind in the category = reflects current brand share.
  • Feeling: How strongly people feel about your brand = future brand share.
  • Fluency: How easily people recognise your brand = your distinctive assets for building brand share.

It’s a chaotic, complex world, so how do our fast and frugal System-1 brains understand it? Through story. Stories are how people make sense of events and information. Which means people are telling stories that your brand fits into. Understanding these stories – about your brand, about your category, or about consumers in general – is critical.

Most “brand storytelling” tools focus on brands, pretending they can tell stories without knowing if people will listen. This one gets into consumers’ heads – what stories do they already believe? Which does your brand have permission to tell? That knowledge is amazingly powerful for brands and marketers. Using an established framework of story types, Storyteller provides a simple, strategic tool for understanding both current and future stories for brands.

Following the publication of The Wisdom of Crowds, we started experimenting with this controversial technique and won a Best Methodology Award for our work in 2005. Having tested over 30,000 concepts globally, we have strong evidence for the accuracy & greater discrimination & insight afforded by the tool.

BrainJuicer Concept Testing

Add to MyJuice

The answer to any easy question, "How do I feel about it?", serves as an answer to a much harder question - "What do I think about it?" Unlike traditional concept tests, which rely on consumers to think about products and services as they never would in-store - rationally - our approach tests and improves ideas by putting emotional response at the heart of testing.

Our emotional response to insights, products & communications is what influences our subsequent behaviour - if we feel nothing, we do nothing!

FaceTrace® is our proprietary solution based on the work of Paul Ekman, a 20th century psychologist and pioneer, which uses faces to measure emotions.

"FaceTrace® has been instrumental in helping our business pull apart the emotional power of our communication & in understanding the extent to which it could influence subsequent consumer behaviour. I am not sure it would have been possible with more 'traditional' methods." - Yvan Goupil, SABMiller (formerly PepsiCo UK)
