It takes eight seconds to walk by a typical storefront. Strategies for Brick and Mortar Stores to Drive Sales | ShoppinPal. There’s a new retail game and the customer determines the rules of engagement. Matching online prices or bulking up product SKUs is not enough to keep pace with a today’s savvy shopper. To stay in touch with this new smartphone shopper, merchants must give customers the ability to shop the way they want to shop, and do it well.

Wise retailers are striving to provide a shopping experience where every customer feels that their individual preferences, wants and needs are a priority from the minute they engage with the store, whether online, through mobile, or inside the store. If retailers choose to sit on their hands right now and do nothing they risk losing relevance with customers. Retailers need to focus in on their inherent advantage — the ability to be locally and individually relevant through the products they sell, how they sell them and the shopper’s experience buying them. Staying relevant with customers means giving them the opportunity to shop the way they love to shop. Mobile. The Joy of Shopping: It’s All in the Mind - FITCH.

Average Annual Inflation Rate by Decade. This Chart shows the Average Annual Inflation Rate for each decade. Each bar represents the geometric mean for the decade (not the total cumulative inflation for that 10 year period ). For two of the decades below you would think the numbers were large enough to be for the entire decade rather than the average annual rate for a single year. Both the teens and the 1970's had huge annual inflation rates. The teens (beginning in 1913 when the U.S. government formed the Federal Reserve and began tracking inflation) averaged almost 10% a year and the 1970's averaged just over 7% a year. This resulted in a cumulative total inflation for the years 1913 until the end of 1919 of 97.96% (in only 7 years) while the inflationary 1970's saw 102.91% over the entire decade.

(click to see larger image) You think that 7% inflation in the 1970's is terrible but 2% or 3% per year since 1990 isn't so bad right? The typical way of averaging is called the "arithmetic mean.

The contributors -- active scholars with both practitioner and academic backgrounds -- share an interest in the general area of psychographics, values, and lifestyle in advertising. The interdisciplinary and international mix of authors bring a diverse perspective to this volume, which is divided into four nonorthogonal sections. The first section deals with theoretical and conceptual issues in advertising research, while the second section presents chapters devoted to improving methodology.

The final two sections illustrate how value, lifestyle, and psychographic research have been used to understand differences among people. The first of these final two sections emphasizes differences among people at different times (commonly called trend research), and the second emphasizes differences among people across national boundaries.

The latest in our New Year series of features assessing the shape of retail in 2014 focuses on the person who, our industry commentators agree, will be the focus on attention in the year ahead: the customer. Retailers, they say, will be looking to new ways of showing the individual the relevant content they want to see, while big data and personalisation technologies will play an important part in reaching them with ever more timely and relevant approaches.

Customer first “The most prominent mind shift we have begun and will continue to see in 2014 is a focus on the customer journey and adopting a ‘customer-first’ strategy. At a time when customer demands are higher than ever and loyalty is at an all-time low, retailers need to get smart about how they interact with each individual customer.

Rakuten Marketing [IRDX RAKU] Alibaba. Consumer Buying Behaviour. Introduction What influences consumers to purchase products or services? The consumer buying process is a complex matter as many internal and external factors have an impact on the buying decisions of consumers. Consumers do not spend much time thinking about the purchase of low value products which are bought on impulse. Manufacturers of such products will need to implement strategies that encourage consumers to buy on impulse from them instead of their competitors.When consumers purchase high value products or non impulse products, they often go through a set process.

This process is discussed below. On the next page there is a discussion of what influences consumer buying behaviour and the different types of buying behaviour.

Decoding the New Consumer Mind: How and Why We Shop and Buy - Kit Yarrow. A decade of swift and stunning change has profoundly affected the psychology of how, when, and why we shop and buy. In Decoding the New Consumer Mind, award-winning consumer psychologist Kit Yarrow shares surprising insights about the new motivations and behaviors of shoppers, taking marketers where they need to be today: into the deeply psychological and often unconscious relationships that people have with products, retailers, marketing communications, and brands.

Drawing on hundreds of consumer interviews and shop-alongs, Yarrow reveals the trends that define our transformed behavior. For example, when we shop we show greater emotionality, hunting for more intense experiences and seeking relief and distraction online. A profound sense of isolation and individualism shapes the way we express ourselves and connect with brands and retailers. Neurological research even suggests that our brains are rewired, altering what we crave, how we think, and where our attention goes.
