  • 2. Inside the Minds of Natural Consumers:Consumer Insights of Natural Home and Personal Care Products Report Scope Personal care and home care marketers face the challenge of trying to understand an extremely fragmented group of millions of consumers. Consumer behaviors and interactions in the market are highly complex, and influenced by a vastly connected and engaged world. Companies seeking to satisfy these customers have difficulty understanding their desires and perceptions using traditional tools. However, by using advanced consumer research techniques based on complexity science and backed by sophisticated software, it is possible to pinpoint the perceptions underlying consumer behavior. It is always important to know how to most efficiently utilize limited resources. Now more than ever, executives need to listen to consumers to know what they value in natural products, and in what circumstance would they buy more of them. Such awareness would allow companies to more efficiently invest in product development and marketing. But it is not enough to just listen to what consumers say. One needs to understand what they mean, and that understanding must not be tainted by expert bias. In other words, marketers need to see the world through the eyes of the consumers themselves, to get into the minds of the consumers. Kline & Company is able to gain rich insights that are not possible with traditional survey techniques by incorporating the most advanced consumer research methodology from Cognitive Edge using an emergent process. This research will take up where other research has left off. While companies may already have a grasp of what the “fully green” consumers like and want, there is a wealth of opportunity in the other segments of the population, or the “partially green” and “not-yet-green” consumers. The unique methodology used will enable Kline to get to why, or in what circumstances, some consumers that traditionally buy regular products have sometimes purchased natural products. It will explain what has obstructed them from purchasing natural products more often, and how those obstacles may be overcome. The scope is intended to provide clients with useful insights to enable them to design products and marketing messages for a larger proportion of the population, to gain higher market share and more new customers. Key Benefits Subscribers will gain powerful insights into the underlying views of consumers regarding natural and organic consumer goods. The report will allow clients to see patterns of consumer perceptions and the aspects of products they like and dislike, getting feedback on product offerings and brand positioning. This report will enable subscribers to: Make crucial decisions about where to invest scarce research or marketing budgets Gain competitive advantage through deep dives into motivations of consumers Identify the contexts in which consumers are the most enthusiastic about natural products Formulate targeted marketing message that most resonate with these consumers Design tactics and strategies leading into successful brand concepts www.KlineGroup.com Report #Y733 | © 2012 Kline & Company, Inc.
