For too long marketers have been asking the wrong question. If consumers make decisions unconsciously, why do we persist in asking them directly through traditional marketing research why they do what they do? They simply can’t tell us because they don’t really know. Before marketers develop strategies, they need to recognize that consumers have strategies too . . . human strategies, not consumer strategies. We need to go beyond asking why, and begin to ask how, behavior change occurs. Here, author Douglas Van Praet takes the most brilliant and revolutionary concepts from cognitive science and applies them to how we market, advertise, and consume in the modern digital age. Van Praet simplifies the most complex object in the known universe - the human brain - into seven codified actionable steps to behavior change. These steps are illustrated using real world examples from advertising, marketing, media, and business to consciously unravel what brilliant marketers and ad practitioners have long done intuitively, deconstructing the real story behind some of the greatest marketing and business successes in recent history, such as Nike’s "Just Do It" campaign; "Got Milk?"; Wendy’s "Where’s the Beef?"; and the infamous Volkswagen "Punch Buggy" launch as well as their beloved "The Force" (Mini Darth Vader) Super Bowl commercial.

Using the science behind the system, the author developed a 7 step process which has been used to help Volkswagen in their bid to triple their sales over the last few years. The Seven Steps has also been behind the launches of several new vehicles including one of the most beloved icons in the world, the new 2012 Beetle. And they helped create a Super Bowl commercial for the 2012 Passat, 'The Force,' that became one of the most impactful ads in the history of automotive advertising
