What is Gender, Anyway? » Sex Sells | Around Retail | Scoop.it

SEX. That’s what I see. What do you see? Here’s a sexy person, who appears to be female, wearing tight-fitting, low-rise jeans and almost nothing for a shirt. The ad is directed toward females who will supposedly want to buy the jeans so they can be just as sexy as the female in the ad. Males who happen to chance a look at the ad will most likely double-take as their walking by or skimming through a magazine. That makes this ad most efficient for the company, right? It gets the job done by attracting a wide variety of viewers, therefore hopefully broadening their consumer range. What’s wrong with that, might you ask? It is a commercial… and you’re right. It is, so I guess it does its job.

As much as half of the world's food - amounting to two billion tonnes worth - is wasted, a UK-based report claims.
Pedro Barbosa's insight:

The Retailer's Guide to Big Data - Data = $$$ Sales #infographic | Around Retail | Scoop.it

Retailers already know how to use customer data to run their brick-and-mortar operations. And they've been digging through reams of website analytics for at least a decade now. But data didn't really get "big" until an explosion in smartphone use and social media addiction, resulting in the need for more agile, relevant marketing.
