After decades of neglect, the recognition that motivation is a core driver of behaviour is a central insight of contemporary behavioural science. Motivation – and motivational research – are now returning to the heart of marketing.
At Brand Genetics, we are specialists in understanding consumer motivations and applying this to drive brand growth – with that in mind we have produced our latest report, which you can download today.
