Should Men’s Products Fear a Woman’s Touch?

Should Men’s Products Fear a Woman’s Touch? | Consumption Junction | Scoop.it

Most eight-year-olds are familiar with cooties: an imaginary infectious disease spread through proximity to children of the opposite sex. We eventually outgrow the silly idea.


But when it comes to the world of consumer products, fear of associating with the opposite sex, at least for some, never really goes away.

Retail therapy: How Ernest Dichter, an acolyte of Sigmund Freud, revolutionised marketing

Retail therapy: How Ernest Dichter, an acolyte of Sigmund Freud, revolutionised marketing | Consumption Junction | Scoop.it
“You would be amazed to find how often we mislead ourselves, regardless of how smart we think we are, when we attempt to explain why we are behaving the way we do,” Dichter observed in 1960, in his book “The Strategy of Desire”. He held that marketplace decisions are driven by emotions and subconscious whims and fears, and often have little to do with the product itself. Trained as a psychoanalyst, Dichter saw human motivation as an “iceberg”, with two-thirds hidden from view, even to the decision-maker. “What people actually spend their money on in most instances are psychological differences, illusory brand images,” he explained.

At a time when national companies were aggressively jockeying for position among Americans—a suddenly cash-happy and acquisitive bunch—Dichter promised a way to influence consumers' brains. If shopping was an emotional minefield, then strategic marketing could be a gold mine for companies.

Between the late 1930s and 1960s Dichter became famous for transforming the fates of businesses such as Procter & Gamble, Exxon, Chrysler, General Mills and DuPont. His insight changed the way hundreds of products were sold, from cars to cake mix. He pioneered research techniques such as the focus group, understood the power of word-of-mouth persuasion and earned startling fees for his theories. By the late 1950s his global business reached an annual turnover of $1m ($8m today), and he enjoyed a reputation as the Freud of the supermarket age.

A temporary shop atop the Etsy shop they already have? I will have to wait and see them in action I think. It's funny, pop ups didn't bother me too much in the first round (then or so years ago) but they bug me now. Mostly because it is harder to close them, some hide the X marks the spot.

Do Mothers Need Some Time Away from Social Media?

Do Mothers Need Some Time Away from Social Media? | Consumption Junction | Scoop.it
Social networking may be stressing mothers out. Half of US mother social users report feeling pressure to create an image that their lives are perfect on social platforms, with younger mothers especially likely to feel this way. The majority of mothers have actually considered stopping use of or taking a break from social media due to burnout or frustration.

Public social pressures, more than fear over time-wasted, is behind declines in mothers using social media.

Those in the middle of Pew’s ideological breakdown got news on Facebook most often — 53 percent of them in the past week, higher than both consistent liberals (49 percent) and consistent conservatives (40 percent). But while those in the middle may get their news there, those on either end of the spectrum are more likely to shape their Facebook experience with politics in mind. They’re more likely to “like” or follow an issue-based group (60% of consistent liberals and 46% of consistent conservatives, versus 33% of those in the middle). They’re also more likely to follow a political party or elected official there (42 percent of consistent liberals and 49 percent of consistent conservatives, versus only 29 percent of Facebook users as a whole)."
