  14. 14. We tend to do what those around us are already doing (or what we think they are) 1. If the norm is desirable, let people know about it. 2. Relate the norm to your target audience as much as possible. 3. Be careful when dealing with undesirable norms. 2. Social Norms

  16. 16. Social Norms: Example Phrases • Most people… • 60% of people… • Thanks to everyone who has already… • Only 20% have still to… • We are expecting a big turnout so… • …?

  18. 18. Behavioural research shows that people can be more motivated to avoid a loss, than gain something. E.g. Saving money or protecting the environment (both ‘gains’) V. Avoiding wasting energy/ managing your home better / putting you more in control of your home (to avoid waste) 3. Avoiding a loss
  19. 19. Avoiding a loss Example phrases: “This would help you spend £25 less on your bills” “By ticking GiftAid, you ensure we get the full amount you have donated” “Sign up to avoid disappointment” Other examples?
  20. 20. Talking about loss Closing your windows in winter saves energy. We would generally advise doing this. On average people who do this save £100 a year. Fifers! Windows left open in winter wastes heat and money. We’d recommend that you close them. This could help put £100 back in your pocket every year.
  21. 21. Anchoring We don’t always make the rationally optimal choices, but draw on contextual cues often unconsciously. Often the choices we don’t want can influence the ones we do… Particularly relevant for options involving numeracy/ financial info
