Signals that have an effect on Human Behavior!

World as we know it has far too many noises to let users zoom into anything and everything. As a brand or a product marketer, it is far more challenging to get audiences to engage by sticking to traditional means of brand messaging. It is becoming harder to cut through noises and focus solely on signals which can have a prominent effect on human behaviour. In the following sections, you will learn more about the key signals and how marketers can key in their offerings in relation to these.

Real-World events that play a key role in Audience Behaviour!

Events that create an effect on our behaviour depends on various factors like –  how humid the weather is or if it’s going to rain today that tend to impact either your plans for the day, or the impending result of your favourite team sports and many more. Such events can take various shapes & sizes and in recent times, they can even impact the handling of Covid-19 vaccinations for example!

As a marketeer, it is important to watch out for such signals and understand the probability of outcomes. Outcomes are often between positive impact or negative impact on behaviour. Building messages and offerings relating to desired outcomes play an important part in resonating with the audience and to build a conversation.

Weather is one of the most primal and universal factors in consumer decision making. It affects where we go, what we eat, what we wear, what we buy and also how we feel.

How pumped up are you when your favorite team wins ?

When was the last time you saw your favourite team win and the rest of your day turned out to be overall better & you felt positive and uplifted? I had mine recently with my favorite team Chelsea moving to UEFA Championship League finals and subsequently my outcomes for the day and the next was more favorable! Sames hold true to create a negative mood when and if your team is having a bad day. 

Audience engagement in sports is at the highest level with decisions now being made keeping them at the forefront and we witnessed this with the European Super League movement – How marketers can further utilize these signals to connect with such passionate audiences with relevant messaging and offers.

Here are some interesting takeaways how brands can leverage signals from Football:

  • Brands that are sponsoring teams can now engage with their audience when there is a game played and even structure offerings based on outcomes.
  • Messages and offerings can further be customised based on both positive and negative outcomes.
  • Brands can further build based on individuals/players who are their brand influencers and structure experience and message based on their individual/ team performances.
  • Amplify your message during breaks encouraging for a quick snack break.
