Shantini Munthree’s new marketing and consumer behavior book, “Love + Fear: Mastering the Primal Motives of Buyers” (published by Archway Publishing), focuses on the simple notion that all motivation exists on a love-fear continuum.

The book makes the case that brands are able to position themselves along a love-fear spectrum. Munthree draws from psychology, neuroscience and philosophy to introduce a new brand framework. The author argues that when marketers concentrate on the buyer’s motivation, and not just the expressions of these motives, they’re able to connect with buyers and activate them. “Love + Fear” encourages brands to think and be bigger in the roles they play in buyers’ lives. It outlines the six roles of brands and how use these for bigger impact. Munthree also introduces two new concepts for conscious branding efforts — macro affections, big movements of love, and macro inflictions, big destructive forces of fear.

“By using the ‘Love + Fear’ model, a brand can cut to the chase on what will move their buyers. And if done well, any brand — from a small start-up to a large heritage brand — could be both financially successful and a force for good,” says Munthree.
