Advertising is a ubiquitous and powerful force, seducing us into buying wanted and sometimes unwanted products and services, donating to charitable causes, voting for political candidates, and changing our health-related lifestyles for better or worse. The impact of advertising is often subtle and implicit, but sometimes blatant and impossible to overlook. This revised and fully updated new edition of The Psychology of Advertising offers a comprehensive and state-of-the-art overview of the psychological findings on the impact of advertising, and discusses the research in the context of recent developments in the fields of social and consumer psychology. Key questions covered in the volume include: What impact does advertising have on consumer behavior? What causes this impact? What are the psychological processes responsible for the effectiveness of advertising? How do consumers make sense of advertising messages? Which messages "get across" successfully and when, and why? How do new online and digital technologies affect consumer judgement and choice? Engagingly written, and including a comprehensive glossary of frequently used concepts, The Psychology of Advertising is a unique and invaluable resource for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and for researchers and lecturers in social psychology, marketing, and communications. It is also a valuable guide for professionals working in advertising, public health, public services and political communication.

'I believe that 'emotion' is where it's at' Tom Peters For far too long, emotions have been ignored in favour of rationality and efficiency, but breakthroughs in brain science have revealed that people are primarily emotional decision-makers. Many companies have not yet accepted that fact, much less acted on it. In this fully revised edition, Emotionomics will help you to understand emotions in terms of business opportunities - both in the marketplace and in the workplace. In today's highly competitive marketplace where many products look alike, it is the emotional benefit that can make the difference. At the same time, companies with engaged, productive work forces will undoubtedly achieve competitive advantage. Dan Hill's book draws on insights gathered through facial coding, the single best viable means of measuring and managing the emotional response of customers and employees, to help you to leverage emotions for business success in terms of branding, product design, advertising, sales, customer satisfaction, leadership and employee management. Emotions matter and Emotionomics will help you to step closer to customers and employees, but step ahead of your competitors.

For too long marketers have been asking the wrong question. If consumers make decisions unconsciously, why do we persist in asking them directly through traditional marketing research why they do what they do? They simply can't tell us because they don't really know. Before marketers develop strategies, they need to recognize that consumers have strategies too . . .human strategies, not consumer strategies. We need to go beyond asking why, and begin to ask how,behavior change occurs. Here, author DouglasVan Praet takes the most brilliant and revolutionary concepts from cognitive science and applies them to how we market, advertise, and consume in the modern digital age. Van Praet simplifies the most complex object in the known universe - the human brain - into seven codified actionable steps to behavior change. These steps are illustrated using real world examples from advertising, marketing, media and business to consciously unravel what brilliant marketers and ad practitioners have long done intuitively, deconstructing the real story behind some of the greatest marketing and business successes in recent history, such as Nike's "Just Do It" campaign; "Got Milk?"; Wendy's "Where's the Beef?" ;and the infamous Volkswagen "Punch Buggy" launch as well as their beloved "The Force" (Mini Darth Vader) Super Bowl commercial.
