Sensory Marketing

  1. 1. Presented by: Leila Zahiri Email: (Dr. Shahtahmasbi Class of Marketing 2) Sensory Marketing
  2. 2. What is Sensory Marketing? – Making customers aware of a product or a brand in order to reach tactical, short-term sales targets (Traditional) vs. – Clarifying a firm’s identity and values with the long-term goal of creating brand awareness and establishing a sustainable brand image (Experiential)
  3. 3. What is Experiential Marketing • Consumer value resides not in the product purchased, not in the brand chosen, not in the object possessed, but rather in the consumption experience(s) derived therefrom. • All products provide services in their capacity to create need- or want-satisfying experiences. • All marketing is “services marketing” • The five portals are represented by factors such as product features and promises, norms and values, perceptions and programs, identity and self-expression, and emotions and love, which are related in different ways to the mental flows and processes of the human brain • Deepen and individualize the experience of a brand Micael Dahlén: It is not only the good or the service in itself that is crucial for the individual’s final sensory experience Andreas Buchholz and Wolfram Wördemann: Successful brands build on the establishment of five portals in the brains of customers Source: Hulten, Bertil & others; Page: 16
  4. 4. Traditional vs. Experiential Marketing Traditional Marketing Experiential Marketing Focus • Focus on product’s features and benefits • Focus on customer’s experience Scope • Product Category & competition are narrowly defined • Focus on consumption as a holistic experience Customer’s Mental Model & Decision Making • Customers are viewed as rational decision makers • Customers decide by their cognitive mind • Customers are rational and emotional people • Customers decide by their cognitive & emotional mind Marketer’s Approach • Methods & Tools are analytical, quantitative & verbal • Methods & Tools are Eclectic Target • Cater to Mass Market • Establish one to one relationships Marketing Relationship • One way from Seller to Buyer • 2 Sided between Seller & Buyer Customer’s Role • Customer as inactive receiver • Customer as a superstar (completely unique and initiative) Source: Link 1

  6. 6. Starbucks - Much more than a cup of Coffee • Sensory Marketing  Deeper and more personal relationship with customers • Giving the brand further aesthetic and emotional values • Creating a view of the chain as a third place outside of home and work. • A visit to Starbucks  an experience for the mind and the heart – The inspiring environment makes it comfortable to read a book or talk with friends – The green and yellow of the interior, together with pleasant lighting, offer a soothing and restful visual experience – The relaxing music is selected with precision and care by the Starbucks Content Team to create the “sound of Starbucks” – Smell and taste of the freshly ground coffee, as well as the comfortable texture, solidity, and shape of the armchairs, –  Sensory experience of the brand Starbucks where Experiences can be shaped, Emotions can be expressed, and Memories can be created Play: Case 1 Case 2 Case 3 Source: Hulten, Bertil & others; Page: 2-3
  7. 7. Sensory Marketing • Tailor made products – fragmentation of market segmentation • Advertisement no longer enough • Sensory marketing is not about the masses or the segment; it is about the individual – Subjective nature of the experience – Affecting both right and left hemispheres (Rational and Emotional) • Empathy and Delight (Source: Hulten, Bertil & others; Page: 155) • Marketing that engages the consumers’ senses and affects their behavior – NEW SENSATIONS (Source: Aradhna, Krishna; Page: 33)

  39. 39. Subliminal Messaging • We can’t consciously perceive subliminal messages, even if we’re looking for them • Three types of subliminal messages: 1. Sub visual messages – visual cues that are flashed so quickly (generally a few milliseconds) that people don’t perceive them. 2. Sub audible messages – low volume audio cues that are inserted into a louder audio source, such as music. 3. Back masking – an audio message that is recorded backwards, with the intention of playing it forward to disguise the reversed message. • New researches has shown that subliminal messages in advertising can, in fact, influence our purchasing behavior (Karremans, Stroebe, & Claus, 2006) • Fitzsimons, Chartrand, and Fitzsimons (2008) found that people were able to list significantly more uses for a brick when they were subliminally primed with the logo from Apple (compared to IBM’s logo) • Légal, Chappé, Coiffard, and Villard-Forest (2011) subliminally primed people with the words “to trust.” The result? Those people found a message about tap water consumption to be significantly more persuasive • Bornstein, Leone, and Galley (1987) found that people agreed more with a person after they were subliminally flashed with a picture of him or her.
