Behavioural Economics studies the psychological and cognitive reasons behind human decision making, particularly around economic decisions. We tend to believe consumers make marketing decisions based on what is most logical (e.g. cheaper = better). However, this is far from a universal truth.

Understanding the processes that cause people to make decisions counter to what is ‘rationally best’ empowers us to better understand our audiences and consumers and in turn allows us to deliver a more effective marketing strategy.
