Brand sense

Lindstrom delves deep beneath the surface to explore the human senses and how these are activated in the decision making process.The reliance on a 2-dimensional sensory advertising world becomes the catalyst to the question: why? We have 5 senses available, Lindstrom contends, why not use them all to make a brand truly touch its market. He explores this notion, and how marketers,armed with this knowledge, are able to push the purchase buttons – stronger than ever before. The WallStreet Journal calledBrandSense “…one of the 5 best marketing books ever published.”
