Behavioral economics in online marketing

Behavioral economics is really interesting. How to use social, cognitive and emotional factors to influence economic decisions or user behaviour. 


Especially the social factors are more and more important since the web is getting "social". But also from a design and marketing point of view, this is really interesting. At this page I will collect presentations, information and I will write short articles about behavioral economics.


Dan Ariely gives a nice presentation about our decisions and how our brains work. "Behavorial economics". Interesting for developing (e-commerce) tests and promotions. Adding options that "nobody wants", can influence choices!
Dan Ariely shows this example with a test in the economist.
