Neuromarketing with author and Forbes contributor Roger Dooley
According to leading neuroscientists, 95 percent of all thoughts, emotions, and learning occur before we are ever aware of it. Yet, most marketing efforts forgo the vast subconscious and instead target the rational, conscious mind. If you want to get ahead of your competition, it’s time to stop selling to just 5 percent of your customer’s brain! Through the wonders of modern neuroscience, tools now exist that can help explain the brain’s cognitive processes. When you understand how your customers’ brains work, you can appeal to the powerful subconscious—and get better results for less money. Dooler will explain how to apply neuroscience and behavior research to better market to consumers by understanding their decision patters. 
With quick and easy takeaways, you'll leave with key strategies for targeting consumers through in-person sales, online and print ads, and other marketing media.

Take your social media to a whole new level!

Take your social media to a whole new level!

If you want to take your social media to the next level you won’t want to miss our June speaker! Named one of the top 50 San Francisco Bay Area startups to watch in 2014, Tim Sae Koo is revolutionizing the way brands interact with social media.  After graduating from college in 2012, Tim along with 2 other USC alums developed Tint, a platform that aggregates, curates, and displays any social media feed on any platform.  Tim will talk about his entrepreneurial journey and how he went from almost running out of money to being a multi-million dollar startup company within one year.  He’ll also show you how Tint allows brands to drive deeper engagement with their audiences by allowing them to integrate all their social feeds into one platform.  From posts and hashtags to geo-targeting, Tint helps you engage customers as they interact with your brand in various ways and puts them all in one easy to use platform that you can display anywhere.
