Heightened Environmental, Moral Awareness Leads To “Breakthrough Marketing”

June 5, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
The food industry and its marketing/packaging units are taking serious notice of the raised health- and eco-consciousness of consumers. What has emerged from this attention is “unexpected, breakthrough marketing” that features, among other tactics, “origin stories” that may be tongue-in-cheek but still appeal to a desire for “authenticity” in edibles. Companies know that consumers are politically, morally and environmentally aware, so cage-free, grass-fed, fair trade, non-GMO, sustainably raised, locally grown, heirloom, and ancient are now important buzzwords in food marketing. Another facet of raised awareness is concern about food waste. So retail grocery chains tout donations to shelters and food kitchens, and celebrity chefs describe their stepped up activism. Chef Mario Batali recently published an e-book titled “Ugly Food: A Collection for Earth Day,” that urges home cooks and industry pros to embrace "cosmetically challenged produce" that usually ends up in landfills.

New “Gig Economy” Has Pluses And Minuses For Workers, Businesses

May 28, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Euromonitor defines the “gig economy” – one of eight trends that together create the “New Consumerism” – as a work environment comprising short-term contracts, freelance and entrepreneurship. The gig economy is on the rise because it benefits employers and workers, delivering flexibility and efficiency. But the freedom it gives workers is offset by a lack of job and income security. In the emerging gig economy, businesses can save resources like office space and operation costs like benefits for permanent employees and training. They can also contract experts for specific projects rather than hire high-priced permanent staff. The downside is a less stable, less controllable workforce. Euromonitor says that could in turn undermine productivity and efficiency.

Lynx Launches Cologne Lineup In Australia

May 27, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Unilever's Lynx brand of deodorant released a collection of colognes in Australia. Priced at $9.99, the cologne comes in three scents: cacao and amber, oud wood and dark vanilla, and iced musk and ginger. In promoting the cologne lineup, the brand departed from its “Lynx effect” approach to marketing. Instead of urging men to “spray more, get more,” the new tagline is “Find your magic.” American albino model Shaun Ross, the brand's new ambassador in Australia, stars as a self-assured and confident man in the latest TV commercial. Lynx's move to change its marketing tone was prompted by the PR drubbing it has received due to its old “get laid”-themed advertising. Although it has retained its market leadership in Australia's $201.3 million men's deodorant market, its share has dropped from 34.8 percent in 2010 to 14.7 percent in 2015.

Society has put in place arbitrary age limits on what women can do, according to almost seven out of 10 of the 1,000 women surveyed by skincare brand Pond's.

Online Retailers Need To Ensure Customers Have The Best Post-Purchase Experience

May 24, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Online retailers need to focus on the post-purchase experience in order to retain customers. For example, beauty retailer Sephora's success is driven by its sustained efforts to connect a shopper's experience throughout the whole customer process across digital, mobile, and brick-and-mortar stores channels. Also, Sephora provides customers with branded delivery tracking page and updates on product recommendations, deals, and editorial content. There are four ways retailers can provide customers with the best post-purchase experience: continuing the conversation; providing shoppers with relevant, personalized information; turning a bad customer experience into an amazing experience; and creating an organizational environment that helps enhance a post-purchase experience.
