As I increase my knowledge of the vast world of Shoppers Marketing; tomorrow I will be amongst the thousand other professionals at Navy Pier, Chicago eager to learn what is new and exciting in Shoppers Marketing!
What is Shopper’s Marketing?
The purchase decision of any product or service is guided by many thoughts, and emotions based on research, circumstances and need of that product or service. Shopper’s Marketing is the science or art of exploring those emotions and thoughts an influencing them through brand positioning.
MARS The Shopper Markting Agency says; companies that have embraced shopper marketing as an integral part of the marketing mix are growing 50% faster than the categories in which they participate. I have been working for a company 5+ years who just recently added shoppers marketing to their mix and YES positive increases have…and still are being seen!
