About Influencing Shopper Decisions

Should I advertise on TV? Is print media dead? How about influencer marketing? Should I promote my product through Facebook and Instagram ads? What about TikTok? What role do in-store retail ads have? How can my brand get shoppers to say "yes" in an increasingly complex, fragmented and fast-changing world?

Rapid innovation, category disruptors, rising shopper expectations, and new access to goods and services are fueling the rise of Shopper Promiscuity, where consumers constantly reevaluate their options and brand loyalty declines. Our increasingly interconnected world has made shoppers incredibly adept at wading through oceans of information during the purchase journey. In Influencing Shopper Decisions, Rebecca Brooks and Devora Rogers are market researchers who reveal how brands can help shoppers say "yes" by better understanding consumer decision-making.

It starts by combating Brand Narcissism, they argue, and bringing shopper centricity into the foundations of consumer research where the buyer, not the seller, is the story's main character. To stay ahead, marketers and retailers need to focus on what the brand can do for the customer, not what the customer can do for the brand.

By tracking the evolution of the shopper mindset from the First Moment of Truth and Google's ZMOT to today, Rebecca Brooks and Devora Rogers outline a new paradigm for shopper behavior that focuses on shoppers' needs, priorities, and personal context. Whether you're a CPG brand marketer or digital media company, international retailer or small business owner, Influencing Shopper Decisions provides an unparalleled understanding of the shopper mindset and the keys to unlocking it's secrets and winning customers. After explaining the forces that drive consumer decision making, Rebecca Brooks and Devora Rogers outline key insights and strategies that marketers can use to maintain relevancy and grow engagement with consumers.
