Podcast With Guest, Patrick Renvoise

The Persuasion Code by Patrick Renvoise & Dr. Christophe Morin

Today is a special day because within the last 24 hours the sequel to the most important business book in the past 95 years has been published.  Not since Scientific Advertising by Claude C. Hopkins, has the business book, Neuromarketing, Understanding the Buy Buttons in your Customer Brain, which sold 200,000 copies, changed the way we market and sell.  This is a book that launched hundreds of consultancies, created thousands of articles, numerous me-too books and changed marketing direction efforts for thousands of companies. 

The sequel, long awaited and anticipated is “The Persuasion Code.”  We have Patrick Renvoise one of the co-authors with us today to discuss what this book delivers that so many have waited for.  

For the uninitiated, Patrick explains Neuromarketing and then continues with:

  1. What he and his co-authored have learned in the intervening years since the original book was published.
  2. We discuss the considerable research, since the first book, which underpins this work.
  3. We ask what, if anything, he learned since 2001 which has surprised the authors?
  4. We discuss the famous Neuromap and ask if anything has changed in the  “Neuromap” brain based theory.
  5. Renvoise covers three take a ways that every marketer can learn that will change the way they sell and market. 

About Patrick Renvoise, Co-Founder & Chief Persuasion Officer of SalesBrain

While marketing super-computers and multi-million software solutions to some of the world’s most brilliant scientists at NASA, Shell, Boeing, Airbus, BMW, and more, he became fascinated by the human brain. Patrick then started to investigate a scientific model to explain how humans use their brain to make buying decisions.
