Rich customer who adopt and purchase a lot of new products to motivate surrounding community to follow him/her in at least one product without any domination to any particular category (car, mobile, clothes, etc...).2. A customer who has voice and opinion on things and share with the community surrounding him/her (or even nation-wide) through newspapers, blogs, or social networks in order to influence on one category they are dominantly good at.Both types of trendsetters are only successful when their personalities have leadership abilities.”<br />YRP Asia Trends Report Series<br /><br />

Empowerment can also be developing for them a direct channel with the brand managers all the time. 3.
