  • Publications – newspapers, magazines, journals -&gt; Radio and television -&gt; Billboards -&gt; Telephones -&gt; Postal Service -&gt; Face to face
  • New consumer : The 20th Century developed a world culture of hypersonsumerism. -Shopping became less about necessities than entertainment, status. -Accumulation rose to a level never seen before. -In US people need to rend storage house to store their unuseful stuff
  • In the emerging culture of mindful consumption, people want to feel good about their purchase decisions . The most successful brands will help consumers make the “right” choices by giving them practical and emotional incentives to do so . “Doing good” should feel good.
  • Alvin Toffler coined the term “Prosumers” in his 1980 book The Third Wave .
  • Prosumers typically make up about 15-20% of any group, and our research shows that what prosumers think now, other consumers will think anywhere from 6 to 18 months down the road; prosumers are ahead of the curve in their attitudes and behavior.
  • getting things done efficiently and effectively, which means at a reasonable cost. They regard social media as a tool that helps them achieve specific ends; social media gives them tangible benefits in terms of the amount of time, money, and effort they spend on understanding what they need to do, identifying the best way of doing it, and finding where to get what they want at the best price; “recommend a friend,” “bring along a buddy - just 12% of consumers!!!
  • where to find jokes and the latest funny clips – 29% of the consumers. opened up by interactive and social technologies: words, pictures, moving images, graphics, sounds = Evian’s “Rollerbabies” TV
  • 19% - strong sense of what’s right and what’s wrong; Advocates are closest in their aims to marketing and PR professionals. They regard social media as a means to spread key ideas and messages, as shown by their high levels of agreement with the statement. They had plenty to say; both the volume of their comments, and the content, clearly illustrate distinctive Advocate attributes. They get fired up by big causes
  • 19% - In the offline world of face-to-face interactions, they’re often introverted and shy, but online they can express and develop a more expansive side. Brands can earn the support of Co-Creators by connecting with them personally and by helping them connect with others - by personalizing and customizing products.
  • 21% - the most egocentric - I’m the first to share the latest, most up-to-date online content.” what a brand can do for them and their desire to stand out above the crowd – they expect brands to compete with each other. They are motivated by status, but not necessarily by the status of money; it might be the status of being smarter or more adventurous or more up-to-date or more discerning. There are many ways to compete.
