Duncan Stevens has been a marketing speaker for the last 10 years. Similarly, in the last 10 years, the World Wide Web has become more and more saturated by businesses in every industry every single day. Every year, more businesses jostle to get their message, advertising, brand, product or service in front of prospective clients more fiercely than ever before.

The days of communicating a one size fits all marketing message are long gone. Nowadays the most cutting edge marketing companies, digital agencies and online influencers are serving up truly bespoke and targeted marketing messages to their customers.

They are finessing their marketing strategies to target the right audience at the right time using a mixture of personality traits, (commonly referred to as the ‘Big 5 OCEAN model’) and segmentation of their audience. This segmentation addresses age, gender, income, etc. and focusses on the more fact-based attributes of their target audience.

These observations are then distilled down even further by addressing people’s attitudes, activities, interests and opinions. Finally, some core principles of persuasion are used to elicit the desired result – whether it is to engage, buy or take action.

Influence and persuasion are fundamentally driven by the behavioural science principles of psychology. As a marketer you will know that whether we have the same income level, job, family, lifestyle, interests or hobbies we all have a different perspective on the world.

A different perspective means that we are all influenced in different ways.
