MAIL CENTER TOUR
Amanda Stafford is a director at the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General’s Risk Analysis Research Center. She leads the Customer Segmentation team, which researches ways to elevate the sender and recipient experience. Her body of research includes papers on mail and parcel innovations, understanding the needs and wants of distinct customer segments, and using market research techniques like surveys, focus groups, and neuromarketing to communicate the unique value of mail. She earned her Masters of Business Administration from Georgetown University, and her B.S. in Marketing and Supply Chain Management from the University of Maryland.
Ms. Stafford will give an overview of the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General (OIG) and summarize recent neuromarketing research conducted by the OIG and Temple University. Our research examines the effectiveness of physical and digital media for creating lasting memories of advertisements and cultivating desirability for brands. Neuromarketing is a rigorous scientific method that explores consumers’ subconscious response — beyond stated preferences. In other words, neuromarketing allows researchers to, in essence, understand the true preferences of consumers.
