Neuromarketing is the science of understanding how our subconscious brain interprets marketing information. Does our subconscious mind decide to accept or simply ignore a marketing message? Neuromarketing is understanding the 'buy buttons' in your customers’ brain and measuring if these buttons are hit when they are exposed to advertising. 


Why and how DRM uses Neuromarketing

At DRM, we have a laser focus on helping advertisers achieve better response rates and getting more customers. We believe there is much to be gained from implementing a science based approach to advertising research and having a deep understanding as to how our brains receive, interpret and process messages.

David Ogilvy had this to say about traditional quantitive and qualitative research, “The trouble with market research is that people don’t think how they feel, they don’t say what they think and they don’t do what they say.” Neuroscience is evolving to solve this conundrum.

Our study of neuroscience has led us to understand how the brain receives advertising and marketing messages. It allows us to structure advertising in a certain way, that the message will be both processed and stored. So most of our application of neuroscience goes into developing creative material that is specifically engineered to engage a prospect and have them take either an unconscious or conscious action.

We all have 3 brains.

In the human brain we have essentially three pieces of hardware. A reptilian brain (Old Brain), Mammalian Brain (Middle Brain) and Neocortex (New Brain). 

For an effective advertising campaign to change consumer behaviour, it must pass through three filters of the prospects brain. The first two are completely subconscious, which are referred to as the Reptilian and the Mammalian brains. The third brain and the final stage of rational thought, is the Neocortex.

An effective ad must penetrate all three brains, with the reptilian brain being the master and the first filter.


Reptilian (Survival State)

The reptilian brain is our oldest brain. It is very basic and very primal. The reptilian brain is only searching for two things. Is it an opportunity (i.e. Will this feel good)? Or is it a threat (ie. Will this feel bad)? Threats come in two types, either energetic or physical. 

All incoming messaging passes through the reptilian brain which happens unconsciously. If your messaging doesn't pass through the reptilian filter, it will be simply ignored. 

Over 99.99% of all messaging gets blocked at the Reptilian brain. 


Mammalian (Emotional State)

The mammalian brain is looking at social order and hierarchy. It is also called the limbic system which is the centre of emotions, memories, hormones and habits. 

The mammalian brain is where we experience our feelings and also is unconscious. It is constantly looking for “Does this person or message represent social strength? Do I trust this message or individual?”


 Neocortex (Executive State)

The neocortex is where rational thought occurs. It's our conscious mind and the only one which is aware of our thoughts. 

Language and abstract thought occur in the neocortex along with problem solving, imagination and planning. The neocortex is one of the reasons humans are the most evolved species on planet earth, due to the ability of the neocortex to communicate and consciously work through problems and innovate.
