Marketers Need a New Dimension in Consumer Targeting

As people changed routines during the COVID-19 pandemic, their consumption needs and purchasing patterns varied significantly. Additionally, demographics, generational influences and life displacements are increasingly shaping new consumer appetites.

Marketers need to add a dimension to consumer modeling to account for these ongoing, pronounced shifts and engage precise audiences with more personalized content and offers. This session will present key research-based findings and recommendations for how marketers can change the course of communications and show how the essential role of snacks and sweets differs by life stage; how marketers can successfully adapt communications to people in new situations; and where and when marketers can engage these audiences to support purchase.
