Habit begins with a revolutionary premisea€“95% of human behavior is controlled by the unconscious mind. This fact exposes the central flaw in marketing theory, market research, and a preponderance of business strategya€“that customers are consciously aware of what theya€™re doing. Habit explains why 80% of new products fail, why billions of advertising dollars are wasted every year, and why even satisfied customers arena€™t loyal. In Habit, Dr. Neale Martin persuasively contends that recent research from the brain sciences reveals that our brain evolved two mindsa€“and marketing is focused on the wrong one. By explaining how the mind actually works, Martin shows how 50 years of marketing theory is deeply flawed, and how your customersa€™ habits thwart even your costliest marketing campaigns. Habit explains in practical terms how to work with both your customersa€™ executive and habitual minds to not only make sales but more importantly, create loyalty. Youa€™ll discover how behavior actually rewires your customers' minda€“and how to leverage this by refocusing on behavior, not on attitudes and beliefs. Martin offers a complete process for working with customersa€™ unconscious and conscious minds together, to become your customera€™s habit, not just their choice. Using these techniques, you can finally achieve the twin holy grails of marketing: higher customer retention, and greater long-term profitability.
