All advertising is about changing people’s behaviour. The more effectively and efficiently brands can change consumer behaviour, the better the advertising. Therefore, this unit on advertising takes the approach of dissecting the psychological principles behind persuasion to change behaviour and then talking through how advertisers use each technique. The unit draws heavily on real-world advertising ideas. The unit first discusses how to define and then understand the dynamics of behaviour change, before looking at how to change behaviour using a variety of techniques. There is not just one way to change behaviour and the techniques act as a toolkit for creating behaviour change.
