Evolutionary implications for touchpoint planning as a result of neuroscience: A practical fusion of database marketing and advertising

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper reviews the concept of touchpoint planning based on
contemporary research into human psychology, attitudes, loyalty and persuasion, and
then describes a model and practical tool for putting this learning into practice based
on the CODAR system. It draws from research in three areas:
1 human psychology, which is signifi cantly shifting much of the theory about consumer
attitudes as developed over the previous 30 – 40 years;
2 marketing communication, and in particular integrated communication, from the perspective of both planning and evaluation and
3 database / data-driven marketing, taking brief note of recent developments in digital technology.
The approach is unusual, since it borrows from advertising research to develop best practice in database marketing / customer management, which it is proposed will in turn be useful to conventional advertisers. By focusing on the most difficult and complete area of branded communication, that is, branded personalised communication, such as a customised webpage or interactive television, and applying the standards from across all marketing communication disciplines to develop an integrated model, useful learning is derived for practitioners focused on both personalised communications and mass / segmented depersonalised communication, such as advertising on traditional television channels.
