Subliminal Stimulation

Written by Guido Jansen in

Theory:

Presenting stimuli before they are consciously processed might influence peoples opinions. 

Application:

The idea of Subliminal Stimulation is to use text or images (or even sound) that presents a message that is presented quickly enough to be registered by the sensory organs and the first brain areas, but too fast to be consciously recognized. This is something you could use on your site when you're using a video message/ tutorial / promo to sell your company or product. BIG note: This is really one for the category 'fine-tuning' or 'how far can you go', but I liked to mention it since there are many (ghost) stories about it's effect. I quote:

The near-consensus among research psychologists is that subliminal messages do not produce a powerful, enduring effect on behavior; and that laboratory research reveals little effect beyond a subtle, fleeting effect on thinking. For example, priming thirsty people with a subliminal word may, for a brief period of time, make a thirst-quenching beverage advertisement more persuasive.

In this episode I talk with Morgan Legge, Director of Operations & Certified Partner Outreach at our long time sponsor Convert.com. Today is not necessarily about CRO specifically, but rather about how to work together within your company. Morgan is going to tell us about the decentralized management model called Holacracy which I personally find fascinating and we end our talk talking about how this also led to Convert applying something that is called Conscious Business by for example eliminating bias in hiring and becoming carbon positive.
