This Expert Insight Interview discusses:

  • How we can use cognitive science to design better brand experiences
  • How to design future brands using cognitive keys
  • How connectedness ties into the B2B side of sales

Cognitive Branding

All of the information that we process is processed by our brain. Sandeep’s book is called Branding Between the Ears because it leans into the understanding of different cognitive sciences about how exactly our brain works, specifically about making choices, and branding is all about making choices.

This leads us to better understand how to design brands, brand experiences, etc. This book’s entire focus is on how you can use that information from cognitive sciences to create better brands and brand experiences.

Cognitive Keys

The brain makes choices by relating a situation to previous experiences or fantasies. So, in essence, if you want to understand how to design future brands, you want to see how those brands can serve as cognitive keys that can trigger sensations of those past experiences the prospects have had in their lives.

Alternatively, the brand should make people feel like it would get them a step closer to realizing those fantasies or aspirations that they have in their minds.

Connectedness in B2B

The way our brain works doesn’t go away when we go into B2B sales. When doing these, you must connect with the buyer — most B2B salespeople will tell you this firsthand. This means having shared chemistry and understanding how they feel about their challenges and struggles.

When your partners feel like you understand them, your B2B sales become more straightforward. This all ties into the connectedness piece of the future-brands puzzle.
