Marketing podcast with Sally Hogshead

Hogshead is the author Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers of Persuasion and Captivation. The book represents three years of research, and explores the 7 universal triggers of fascination: power, lust, mystique, prestige, alarm, vice, and trust.

Each trigger leads to a different style of communication and a different type of relationship.

This notion certainly applies to individuals, but it also applies to how fascinating your company or brand is as well. It’s not enough to simply know the triggers, you’ve got to find ways to communicate and use them as well.
