WHY THE CLUTTER? HOW TO BEAT IT?• No real differentiation of products• Homogeneity on the marketplace• Oversaturation of marketplace & Abundance of goods• Paradoxically leading to lack of incentives to consume• Latest study shows 68% of U.S. adult consumers declare “consumption is less about the product and more about me” *Answer: Marketing based on reinforcing consumer’s own identityvia consumption of like-minded branded goods. * Consumers Seek Brand Engagement, Personal Touches.MARTINA OLBERTOVA CONSULTANCY MediaPost.com
