Marketers love to disrupt some new thingamajig into the next big thing. So, is neuromarketing the newest trend to make marketers crazy about customers’ cognitive decision making, or is it just a crock of B.S.? In fact, what is it?
In episode 32 of The Heart Of Marketing podcast, John Gregory Olson and I, Jayme Soulati, accomplish more banter and ask more questions about the philosophical nature of neuromarketing. Together we jump in and out of this newest trend to dive deeper into the brain waves of customers to determine how, when and why they buy.
Here’s a little secret…I truly consider neuromarketing as a crock; after all, hasn’t marketing been managing customer behavior for decades already? What do you think?
Throughout this episode, we provide solid examples from The Pepsi Challenge, Chester Cheeto for the Cheeto Eaters (a new fan created by me), Coca Cola’s Share A Coke campaign, and the Zyppah.

Does your marketing campaign thrive on the neural aspects of thought, emotion and behavior? Should it?
