You have to make people feel something if you want them to do something.
Before you go to write your next tweet, LinkedIn post, or sales page…

Brainy Breakdown 🤓
There’s a lot going on in your buyer’s mind.
Sure, they’re reading your ad.
But they’re also thinking about what to make for dinner, the Slack message they need to respond to, and what to get their Dad for his birthday.
Adding humor to your ads can snap people out of their internal chatter.
Here’s a way to add humor and increase sales by using framing:
Not only does the ridiculous deal grab attention…
It also implies that the default choice is to buy two burgers instead of one.
Do you think this funny sign boosts sales? We can’t know for sure, but my bet is Heck Yes!

Brainy Spotlight 💡
Pattern interruptions catch our attention.
It’s easier to spot a green apple mixed with red apples than it is to spot a specific red apple amongst other red apples. See what I mean?
Psychologists call this the Von Restorff Effect – and Creative Director and Why We Buy reader Tara Ladd is using it perfectly.
Her email signature has a GIF that breaks the pattern. Once she has your attention, she builds rapport with fun, friendly photos that align with her role as a Creative Director.
She pre-suades the people she’s emailing by directing their attention and increasing her likeability.
The best part? This probably took 10 minutes.
