People often forget that business is, at its core, a series of interactions between various people. As a result, human psychology always plays a role.
In this article, we’ll cover a variety of psychological truths and how they can play into our go-to-market activities.
One of the most important psychological concepts to understand is cognitive dissonance. This occurs when a person’s beliefs clash with what they interpret in the world around them.
For example, imagine your boss has just told you that your department needs to increase sales by 20% this quarter. However, you know that this goal is unrealistic, given the current market conditions. The cognitive dissonance here is created by the tension between your goal (to increase sales) and your belief (that the goal is unattainable).
Los sitios web de marketing también suelen crear este problema, ya que el texto de la página no coincide con el diseño general o incluso con la comprensión de la marca que tienen sus clientes y prospectos.
Piense en la disonancia cognitiva como una fricción que ralentiza los procesos en toda su empresa y trate de eliminarla.
Efecto gradiente de la meta
The goal gradient effect is a case of cognitive dissonance that occurs when people pursue a goal. As we get closer to our goal, we start to feel more and more motivated. This is because we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
The Goal Gradient Effect is a powerful tool that marketers can use to increase customer engagement and conversion rates, enablement professionals can use to enhance training effectiveness, and other members of the go-to-market team can use it to improve overall flow through various processes.
