As a result of their nature, men and women differentiate from each other. That differentiation may cause problems when it comes to advert that is prepared for a specific gender…
All the brands, notably clothing ones, separate audience according to their gender while determining the target audience. Then, they designate the strategy and send a brief to the advertising agency. At that point, an agency needs to care about some issues. One of these issues is the differences in perception between men and the women. Today, we will discuss designing an advert according to gender differences in terms of neuro design principles.
As a result of their nature, women and men are following two different paths. That difference is about how we perceive elements surrounding us. At that point, while man’s brain is following a more systematic path, women’s brain works empathy-focused. That situation causes a change on what men and women see when they look at an advert. That is an important point for a brand when it comes to giving the message directly to target audience.
Let’s examine that situation on examples,
On that ad which addresses to women, both men and women subjects focused on the face of the figure. While men look more on the slogan, women look more on the face.
From this viewpoint, it can be said that if the face of the figure is remarkably close, women may focus on the face more than the slogan itself. As a result of that situation, that ad is unsuccessful in terms of neuro design principles.
On that ad, the figure is placed full length.
Both men and women subjects focused on the face less than the first example. So that they can see the slogan on the billboard. Unlike men, women subjects observed the shoes of the figure too.
From this viewpoint, it can be said that if the face of the figure is used smaller and less detailed, it might help slogan to become more visible. On the contrary case, women subjects have the tendency to focus on the face and the details of it.
Also, if the face is placed behind the shoe and the skirt might draw more attention. That situation may be something that a clothing brand might desire.
In the light of such information, in an advert whose target audience is women, it is clear that advert is more beneficial in terms of neuro design principles.
On that ad, the figure is placed full length again but her face is turned to text and her body is turned to the camera.
Both men and women are focused on the text. But since it is hard to see where the figure’s eyes are looking, it can’t be said that subjects are influenced by her line of vision.

The goal might be to create a perception, represent the brand or give a message while designing an ad. That message might be about promotion, discount or brand slogan. Brand might want to represent the face or the clothes of the figure according to their strategy. That is why the brand needs to determine what it wants to highlight while designing an ad and photo shoot needs to be done according to these facts.
To sum up,
An advert prepared without taking neuro design principles into the consideration might fail to transmit the message to the audience. In today’s world that the consumer looks at the advert for the only couple of minutes, it is important to eliminate these undesired elements from the ad. That is why neuro design principles should be taken into consideration…

Brands spend millions of dollars for the adverts but they draw consumer’s attention for a couple of minutes, no more. So the message on the advert doesn’t reach the consumer but it is possible to use adverts more effectively with a neuromarketing-based approach.
Did you know that people live under the influence of their oldest brain called reptilian brain? Reptilian brain which affects consumer’s unconscious process is focused on surviving and can’t perceive complicated messages. Lots of works done in advertising business are produced without taking consumer’s unconscious reactions into consideration.
