For the full version please check trendwatching.com/trends/micasaestucasa DEFINITION Many consumers in South & Central America (SCA) will enthusiastically support brands that don't close their eyes to social inequality, and (better yet) offer consumers a chance to play a part in fixing social issues. DRIVING THIS TREND: 1. EMPOWERMENT Consumers are optimistic about the future and their ability to shape it. 2. STATUS SHIFT Making a positive social impact is just one ‘new’ form of status. 35% 32% 49% of consumers willing to pay more for products & services that give back to society. (Nielsen, March 2012) 49% 3. INFORMATION (IN)EQUALITY More (and better) information is making consumers more sensitive to the needs of others around them. 4. MATURIALISM More sophisticated consumers mean a greater tolerance for brands who express a more direct and demanding brand attitude. EXAMP LES Techo: Build a house with a ‘personal’ nail Atados: Latin America’s first volunteering portal Satisfeito: High-end restaurants offer smaller portions for same price Buchanan’s: Neighborhood clean-up rewarded with free concert NEXT | When applying this trend, be sure to: Spur real action: Consumers want to move beyond simple, distant, low-impact campaigns and feel that their actions are making a tangible difference, not just leave it up to brands to take those actions for them. Challenge consumers: Consumers are increasingly receptive to brands jarring them into acknowledging social inequality, or at least their (im)perceptions of this fading taboo subject. Be bold!
