When no-one believes what they’re told, how do they decide what to buy?
We live in the age of ‘post-truth’.
No longer accepting what we are told via the media, nor trusting the marketing messages aimed at us by big companies, we all now look elsewhere for opinions, attitudes and reassurances on which to base our choices.
But where do we turn?
The power of Groups
For huge numbers of people, the answer is to their ‘Group’. A selection specific to each of us, Groups are the associations of people with whom we feel a special bond of identity and belonging.
In the terms that we, as marketers, think about Groups, they will generally have millions of members.
And, vitally, through the sense of belonging they impart, they will usually have collective consumption habits. Members will choose the same brands to both reinforce and flag up their identity.
For you as a marketer, Groups are today’s most influential and important tool to understand and around which to plan your activity.
Because if your brand can become a part of the ‘shared consumption’ of a Group, it’s fortunes will boom.
