The Secret Science Behind A Grocery Store's Layout: How They Get You To Buy Things You Didn't Even Know You Wanted

Science & Human Behavior are fascinating things and when grocery stores and big businesses combine the two in the layout of the Supermarket, learn how the average consumer usually falls into the booby traps and walks out purchasing many more items than they intended to.

Class Experience

With a background in sales and marketing and a lifelong passion for education, I believe every smart consumer should know the millions of dollars that are invested in psychology and behavioral sciences that  go into getting people to buy.  As an educator and entrepreneur, I have been on both sides of this process in learning and creating marketing campaigns to increase sales and to educate businesses on how people buy.

Handouts will be provided upon request to show how you can overcome the booby-traps the grocery stores set for you.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
If you are interested, I would be happy to have both parents and children "code" themselves to learn more about their characteristics for buying and communicating. This "coding" method is used by businesses across the globe and is NOT a personality test that is still used in most businesses and educational environments. This is not a part of this class, but it is an option for those families who want to learn more.
