Genre: Business & Economics

The consumer goods industry accounts for 20 percent of the world's gross domestic product (GDP)-that's over $14 trillion in turnover. And yet the industry isn't growing! It lags behind global GDP growth, and the latest figures suggest that the world's top 250 consumer goods manufacturers lost nearly $38 billion in profit in 2011 compared to the previous year. As growth declines, profit margins erode and leading players are caught in a perfect storm: hyper competition, the growth of mega-retailers, explosive increases in input costs, talent shortages, and the declining effectiveness of traditional marketing methods all suck profits from a once vibrant and progressive industry. Industry thought leaders see an urgent need for change. In The Shopper Marketing Revolution, shopper marketing pioneers Mike Anthony and Toby Desforges analyze why the industry needs to change and provide managers in the field with the practical advice and proven techniques they'll need to revolutionize their businesses. Mike and Toby introduce the five-step Total Marketing model, an approach that creates coherent links between the end consumer and the in-store environment. Total marketing represents a fundamental shift in the way marketing works. It will help businesses understand how to respond to the reality of the 21st century-transforming the way they market their brands and relate to retail customers.

Genre: Business & Economics

As India's middle class grows and disposable incomes rise, "modern" retail is becoming the next hot sector of the Indian economy. Hundreds of millions of new consumers will join this retail revolution, venturing into supermarkets, department stores and air-conditioned shopping malls for the first time. But instead of just window shopping, many of them will be serious buyers with money to spend. To cater for their needs, established players in the modern retail sector such as Biyani, Raheja and Goenka are being joined by the big names of Indian business - Reliance, Birla, Bharti, Tata etc - who plan to spend billions over the next few years rolling out supermarkets, big-box outlets and specialty stores. At the same time, property developers are getting on with the "malling" of India, and looking for high profile anchor tenants to lure customers. On the sidelines of this Indian retail revolution are big overseas players such as Wal-Mart, which already has a tie-up with Bharti to provide much-needed “back office” support. But what Wal-Mart really wants is the right to set up its own stores in India. The same goes for Tesco, Carrefour, Metro and other international players. While the macro outlook appears bright, the problems are astronomical for India retail industry. There is no reliable cold chain, transport logistics are appalling, there is a huge lack of managerial talent, there is no consistency for quality and quantity of supply, there is political opposition from groups such as market middlemen, the mom and pop "kirana" corner stores have to be catered for, as do the farmers who grow the produce that is integral to a successful retail revolution. How well will these disparate players cope with the various pressures of a dynamic and fast-moving industry?

The marketing revolution is here, so get on the right side of the barricade and become a part of it! Let's thank Mr. and Mrs. Consumer and their little Consumerlings who have seized power from the corporations and are now firmly in control. In Punk Marketing, Laermer and Simmons take an irreverent, penetrating look at the seismic change in the relationship between the people who sell stuff—products, services, entertainment—and those who purchase it. They demonstrate that to survive in business, a revolutionary approach is needed—one they have branded "Punk Marketing"—and it's one we all need to understand, for the traditional divisions among commerce, content, and consumers are continuing to blur ever more rapidly. Never dull, sometimes controversial, but always a helluva lot of fun, Punk Marketing presents a manifesto for any businessperson needing to engage consumers—or any consumer seeking to understand and employ their newfound power. And here's the good news: It's based on principles that have existed forever. In an age of digital video recorders, "branded" entertainment, cell-phone TV, multiplayer online games, and never-ending social networking, a coherent approach to marketing has never been more vital. With Punk Marketing, there's a built-in plan to equip you with tools to make all this change work out just fine, thanks. Punk Marketing is the first shot—soon to be heard 'round the world—of a long-awaited and breathless uprising that businesses want, deserve, and desperately need.

Tap

Release Date: 2017-04-14
Genre: Business & Economics

Consumers create a data trail by tapping their phones; businesses can tap into this trail to harness the power of the more than three trillion dollar mobile economy. According to Anindya Ghose, a global authority on the mobile economy, this two-way exchange can benefit both customers and businesses. In Tap, Ghose welcomes us to the mobile economy of smartphones, smarter companies, and value-seeking consumers. Drawing on his extensive research in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and on a variety of real-world examples from companies including Alibaba, China Mobile, Coke, Facebook, SK Telecom, Telefónica, and Travelocity, Ghose describes some intriguingly contradictory consumer behavior: people seek spontaneity, but they are predictable; they find advertising annoying, but they fear missing out; they value their privacy, but they increasingly use personal data as currency. When mobile advertising is done well, Ghose argues, the smartphone plays the role of a personal concierge -- a butler, not a stalker. Ghose identifies nine forces that shape consumer behavior, including time, crowdedness, trajectory, and weather, and he examines these how these forces operate, separately and in combination. With Tap, he highlights the true influence mobile wields over shoppers, the behavioral and economic motivations behind that influence, and the lucrative opportunities it represents. In a world of artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, wearable technologies, smart homes, and the Internet of Things, the future of the mobile economy seems limitless.

We live in a world where our mobile devices have become extensions of ourselves. We depend on them for instant connections to entertainment, social media, news, and deals. The phone has become our ticket, loyalty card, and catchall wallet. Networks are faster, phones are smarter, and the mobile shopper is ready to spend money now. What can a business do to maximize the mobile buying power of the new impulse consumer? Gary Schwartz has written a groundbreaking book that outlines the history of the mobile industry and shows just how businesses can build up their mobile platforms to maximize online sales. He’ll explain: • How to minimize barriers between the shopper and a sale. • How marketers can connect and, more important, reconnect with loyal shoppers. • The technology available now—and what’s coming soon—and how to pick a solution that will deliver results. But like Blink or Freakonomics, this isn’t just a book for businesses. It’s also an eye-opening look into the ways our economy is changing every second of every day. Gary Schwartz analyzes a phenomenon that’s modifying people’s actions and challenges our assumptions about our behavior as consumers. Anyone interested in the ways our behavior as shoppers is changing—and what we can do to better harness this opportunity—will find this book to be essential reading.

Genre: Business & Economics

Store Wars The battle for mindspace and shelfspace Judith Corstjens, Arrow Consultancy, Bois-le-Rois, France and Marcel Corstjens, Professor of Marketing Insead, Fontainebleau, France Fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) marketing has become a struggle between manufacturers and retailers for control of Mindspace and Shelfspace. Partnership is seen as an Indian wrestling match between manufacturers and retailers: co-operation can only be gained from a position of strength. Marketing for FMCG manufacturers now involves understanding retailers, their business and marketing strategies, their strengths and their limitations. The major aim of modern marketing is to affect the balance of power between retailers and their suppliers. Store Wars sets out to equip the reader to thrive in this climate. "Advertising agencies are in a unique and sensitive position as mercenaries in the battle between manufacturers and retailers. They work for both sides. This book provides, with its concept of mindspace and shelfspace, a profound and contemporary insight into the anatomy of branding on both sides of the divide." Martin Boase, Chairman, Omicom UK plc "The battle for mindspace and shelfspace provides a practical framework within which FMCG managers will need to test, adjust or even fundamentally change their strategic address. It describes the new reality." Dominic Cadbury, Executive Chairman, Cadbury Schweppes plc "Marcel and Judy have brought to bear their intellectual prowess and institutional knowledge to provide an enlightening view of issues in modern retailing. A book full of thought-provoking ideas for academics and practitioners alike." Rajiv Lal, Professor of Marketing, Stanford University

Loveworks

Genre: Business & Economics

In 2004 Kevin Roberts wrote Lovemarks: the future beyond brands. It was admired by many as a breakthrough in marketing thinking but was also controversial because of its surprisingly obvious thesis: that emotional connections are at the heart of sustained relationships between producers, retailers, and consumers. While many companies were using the language of war in their marketing (target, penetrate, ambush), Roberts was using the language of love (mystery, sensuality, intimacy). He explained in simple terms what people are often loath to admit: we make decisions with our emotions over our reason. Lovemarks described the journey by which brands could move from consumer respect based on intellect, to consumer love based on emotion—and in return gain "loyalty beyond reason." In 2010 Advertising Age magazine named Lovemarks one of their "ideas of the decade," while noting that the roadmap for brands to achieve Lovemark status was still not entirely clear. Loveworks: How the world's top marketers make emotional connections to win in the marketplace adds to the original Lovemarks by showcasing real-world business examples and outlining the roadmaps followed by several world-renowned brands to achieve Lovemark status: Procter & Gamble, Toyota, Visa, General Mills, Miller, T-Mobile, and Lenovo are just a few examples of businesses winning in the marketplace through the application of the Lovemarks theory, maintaining laser-like focus on making and sustaining emotional connections with consumers. Loveworks features 20 case stories from clients and markets worldwide in widely varying categories. "My book shows that Lovemarks thinking works—anywhere, anytime. All it takes is having the brains to implement it, the guts to see it through, and an abiding faith in emotion as your compass," says Brian Sheehan.
