Altruism is generally defined as the belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others. In this episode, I describe how marketing professionals can avoid conflicting and confusing altruistic vs self-seeking benefits in several facets of their marketing and leadership efforts.

Marshall Fire Boulder Colorado Announcement

Boulder Colorado Fires Announcement from host, Sandra Thomas-Comenole

On December 30th, 2021, a wildfire blazed through the residential communities of Boulder Co, including the community that my family and I call home. Around 12 noon on that day, we noticed our neighbor's house two doors down on fire and called 911. They had no idea that there was even a fire in the area. My husband and I quickly got our 4 children and ourselves out of our house, leaving with the clothes on our backs and without shoes on our feet. We made it safely out as we could see the fire make its way into our own backyard. That day over 34,000 people were evacuated from our community as the fire tore its way and destroyed approximately 1000 homes including our own. 

For this reason, I will be taking a break from producing new episodes of the Behavioral Economics in Marketing Podcast. But do not worry, I have several episodes written and ready to record. And will do so as soon as we can stabilize our situation. For those wishing to expedite that process, please consider donating to my family's GoFundMe page: https://gofund.me/1639415b

Please feel free to share it as well.

 

Thank you for your commitment to the Behavioral Economics in Marketing podcast and I look forward to cueing up new episodes as soon as I can.

Dual Process Theory on Customer Journey Optimization

During the last few episodes, we have been hanging out in a series on the customer journey and doing a deep dive into what they are, why they are important and how to optimize customer journeys through behavioral economics. In this episode, we will discuss dual process theory and several ways to apply it to customer journey optimization. Dual process theory is a psychological term that describes the two different modes or systems of thinking. System 1 is the automatic mode of thinking, where System 2 is the calculating mode of thinking. In this episode, we used examples of toothpaste buying, grocery stores and amusement parks to better understand our customers' mode of thinking during purchasing.
