Published on

Are consumers making different purchases because they use their tablets, phones, PCs and the Internet or are they making the same decisions? They’re just coming to the same conclusion using different pre-purchase information gathering and decision-making pathways?

  • Media from all sources deliver messages to consumers with a mostly positive outcome. Some are very persuasive, others aren’t. Each of these messages moves the consumer along the purchase funnel and brand preference map to cause them to act in the marketplace, choosing any one of the competitive offerings.
  • There are 4 primary steps along the way to purchase: Information gathering where facts, sometimes mixed with emotions are generally obtained. Preferences are developed that are based on some rational, but mostly emotional considerations. Price shopping allows the consumer to trade-off their preferences for a purchase that fulfills their need and compensates them for the money they will pay. They make the purchase.
  • Peeling back the onion on the delivery of messages, consumers receive messages either in a passive way through interruptive media, such as, TV, digital and other sources. Depending on where the consumer lies on the purchase path they also actively seek out information to inform them as to rational and emotional attributes of the brand. The messages come through three primary dimensions: Mass, Direct & Digital; In-Store; and during and after Use/Consumption.
  • Marketers using only social and digital metrics mostly measure the direct response a consumer makes and ignores all other possible impressions received from other message sources.
  • Traditional models based on the outside of the cloud ignore any of the interactions within the cloud and have difficulty developing synergistic values between media and at different stages of the purchase process
  • Whether it’s for a B2B or Consumer market, these types of models are media centric and ignore the nuances of the interaction of the consumer taking place at each level of the purchase process
  • The process individuals go through in any given category or industry depends on the personas of the consumer. Some invest heavily in information gathering. Others make relatively uninformed purchased relying on the opinions of others. And yet other personas use online information sources while others employ more offline and face-to-face information gathering. Each of these personas balance the level of time and money invested in research and shopping, versus the quality/suitability of the offering, versus the weighing of other opinions at the purchase committee.
  • As marketing strategists we need to balance the things we can measure – at reasonable cost – and move from a media centric approach to a consumer centric approach
