The marketers at Best Buy Boise are taking a page out of the playbook for many other retailers, and using emotional triggers to make you addicted. When people go shopping they often have a list in mind of what they want to buy. But as soon as we enter the store, our eyes are drawn to items that weren’t on our list-things we didn’t even know existed! So how do these stores manage this feat?
This is a sentence. This is another sentence. And this one too! These three sentences should be enough to continue the post without any bullet points or numbers for now. : ) Now I am going to focus on keyword research and figuring out how many paragraphs I need so that Google will love me more than it hates my momma’s apple pie. Mm.. Apple Pie.. Yumm.. What do you want? More content, less text in these sentences, an endless supply of delicious pies from Walmart–whatever you want just don’t stop reading!! 🙂 The end!

Makers of products and services want you to come back, even when there’s no need. They know that positive experiences leave a lasting impression on customers so they’ll keep coming back for more. The key is repetition—the brain remembers the same thing over and over again especially if it feels like we’re achieving something or learning something new every time. Marketers are experts at harnessing this power with customer loyalty programs, coupons, rewards points, etc. All these things have one goal: get us in the store by rewarding our purchases with discounts or freebies; then make sure we stay for as long as possible by giving out tidbits of knowledge about their latest product offerings while stimulating our senses through attractive displays and enticing smells. They even have a couple of ways to make sure we’re coming back again and again.
*Rewards points: The more you spend, the higher your loyalty level, which means bigger discounts on future purchases; Coupons: These can be found anywhere from inserts in Sunday newspapers to digital mobile coupons where they’ll send out offers for specific items that are relevant to what you’ve been looking at or buying-if not they’ll tailor them specifically for you based on an algorithm that has figured out your shopping preferences.*
The worst part is all this effort these marketers put into getting us addicted doesn’t work unless customers return over and over again because unlike drugs it isn’t enough just one dose. But there’s good news too—we can fight back!
*The first step is to arm yourself with information: go on social media and search for the hashtag #blackfridayfail or other hashtags related to marketing, advertising, consumerism; Search online in order to find blogs that will help you cut through all of this clutter.
*Next up is self-control—turn off your email notifications so it’s not constantly buzzing while you’re trying to work.*And finally we can just say no by using a service like IFTT which allows us set up filters if there are particular sites or people we want blocked from our feed. This is also helpful when shopping because these algorithms know what type of items give us an adrenaline rush (so they’ll show them to us) and it’s important to be mindful of what we are looking at.
*Eliminating distractions by turning off notifications and setting up IFTT filters are two of the best ways to be more mindful when it comes to using social media.*If you’re thinking about creating posts on your own blog or tweeting, take a moment for self-reflection first. This will help you get clear on what’s important so that not only is your content targeted but also timely.
The goal here isn’t less time spent online—it’s just better organized time and making sure we don’t fall prey to marketers’ tactics. It takes work, yes, but in order to become successful we need to do something different from whoever came before us anyway! What else would be new? *Now go out there and make your social media time count!*

And now for the first way marketers make you addicted to their brand: You get a dopamine rush from every like, check-in or “follower” notification. It’s rewarding and addictive! Social media is social—even if it feels more like being watched by an audience of strangers than anything else. The entire point is that these networks are designed to keep you coming back so that they can show ads on your timeline and take money out of your wallet in exchange for products they promise will bring you happiness (but often don’t).
The only problem here is that when we’re always waiting for a new post, tweet or comment reply instead of living our lives..we start feeling stressed because time doesn’t seem to be moving.
The best way that marketers can make you addicted is by tapping into the psychology of what makes a habit and then using it against us. They know that if they want to get our attention, all they have to do is trigger the brain’s reward center after we take an action—like clicking on something or making a purchase..just as long as it gets them in front of more eyeballs for longer periods of time so people will see their ads before putting down money elsewhere.
